Dynamic Push for Pool Speed

Application In order to improve on Australia's already strong swimming reputation, researchers at the Australian Institute of Sport, CSIRO and Monash University are using computational fluid dynamics in a bid to speed up elite swimmers.
"At the moment we do a lot of high-speed and regular video to identify ways to improve performance, and coaches decide on improvements, but we have no way to analyse the difference our changes make," Mason says.

"If we could scan the swimmer and use motion capture information to discover how they move through the water, and model the changes using CFD, we could scientifically assess the benefit of the changes."
