Aiming for Victory: Virtual Wind Tunnel Testings (without graphics)

How can a hightech catamaran be tested? How can engineers analyze the aerodynamical characteristics of such a boat? Oracle Team USA and their Technology Partner BMW know the answer: it's CFD. "CFD means computational fluid dynamics, in simple terms: it's a way to do virtual wind tunnel testings", says Len Imas, Head of Aerodynamics at Oracle Team USA.
