Stephen Barr, Roger Birkbeck, Jeremy Shipman Combustion Research and Flow Technology, Inc.


Big Wave Surfboard Optimization

Working with one of the world's top big wave board shapers, engineers at CRAFT Tech have applied computational fluid dynamics (CFD) within a design optimization process, employing a genetic algorithm to evolve the design of a big wave surfboard. In this article, we will explore the design framework that allowed over 100 design iterations to be explored, resulting in a higher speed, lower drag, big wave surfboard design.
