Test Boats

Use of CFD has come a long way since we first used it over 30 years ago as part of the design process for ThrustSSC. But with something as critical as stability and control for a Mach 0.6 jet powered boat, how confident can you be that the results will be reflected in real world operational use? Using two industry standard packages to correlate and check results helps, but collecting data from instrumented tests boats is a critical way of gathering real life data to check CFD predictions.
