What do you think of when someone says they make ship models? Do you see one of those ships-in-a-bottle that hobbyists put together in meticulous, laborious detail, or a radio-controlled toy boat that kids and adults might navigate on a pond in New York's Central Park? But, if you are a naval architect--a ship designer--a different kind of ship model--a hydrodynamic computer simulation--is helping you design faster, quieter, or more economically efficient ships for the world's navies, merchant marines, and cruise lines.
