The Ship Shape: Designing New Ships webisode was developed by the National Defense Education Program LabTV.

Abstract: Engineers use computers to help them design ships for the Navy. Using CAD and CFD (fluid dynamics) software, they can design ships that move efficiently. They run tests on computer models to determine fluid (air and water) flows and resistance and how well the ship will perform at sea.

Keywords: computational fluid dynamics (CFD), computeraided design (CAD), drag, resistance, streamlines, thrust, turbulence, viscosity, wake careers, scientists, STEM, engineers, technology, engineering, mathematics, Department of Defense, NDEP, National Defense Education Program LabTV, videos.
