Engineering for the Gold

Application Desktop Engineering is running an article on Engineering for the Gold medal in bobsled at the 2006 Winter Olympic Games. The US team, traditionally underfunded compared to European teams, is using reverse engineering and CFD analysis for an edge on the track.
"In this age of computer-aided design," says design specialist Bob Cuneo, "[hand forming] was the wrong way to go about it." He knew he needed to create a 3D computer model for a CFD study, but no native CAD data existed for any sleds. Cuneo needed to capture the sleds and athletes in 3D, create a digital model, and find the right CFD solution.
