    1. 1. Team New ZealandTwo Boats or Not Two Boats?<br />Tommy Robaina - Nicholas Holt - Brett DeRocker - RonakAmin<br />
    2. 2. Introduction – Design of a Sailboat<br />Introduction – Design of a Sailboat<br />
    3. 3. Background <br />1870 - Introduction of the American Cup (formerly known as The One Hundred Guinea Mug)<br />Changes and Regulations<br />Sailboat length and mast size <br />Crew size<br />Competition Structure<br />Two groups <br />Defenders<br />Challengers<br />Background<br />
    4. 4. Racing Objectives – How to win<br />Weight of the sailboat<br />Drag factor<br />Strength and stability<br />High winds and sea conditions <br />Crew<br />Fitness/training as well as knowledge<br />Racing Objectives – How to Win<br />
    5. 5. Testing Methods – A Comparison<br />Testing Method – A Comparison<br />Tank and Tunnel<br />Computer Simulation<br />Construction of ¼ scale sailboat model<br />Testing takes place in a water tank/pool with use of towing device and wind tunnel<br />Test analyzes performance characteristics<br />Use of computer software to analyze performance characteristics<br />Asks for specific input data to analyze and calculate performance output<br />Tools<br />FEA<br />CFD<br />VPP<br />
    6. 6. Computer Simulation Method<br />Computer Simulation Method<br />Advantage<br />Disadvantages<br />Speed <br />Creation time <br />Instant Results<br />Cost effective in comparison to Tank and Tunnel<br />Easy to compare alternative sailboat designs<br />Simple to enter alternative parameters & receive results<br />Eliminates the “Scale-up” problem<br />Massive computing memory needed<br />Physical prototype still necessary for basic hull and keel design<br />Not completely self sustainable; requires additional extensive knowledge<br />
    7. 7. Team New Zealand<br />Objectives<br />To win the Americas Cup in 1995<br />Resources<br />Syndicate of 50 members<br />Management, Design and Construction Crew, Sailing Crew<br />20 Million Dollar Budget<br />Beneficiary of Silicon Graphics Corporation<br />Access to powerful computer technology<br />Team New Zealand<br />
    8. 8. Dilemma Choices Faced by Team New Zealand<br />Crafting of two boats of similar design at the same time<br />Crafting of two boats of different design at the same time<br />Craft one boat now, determine performance, and then based on that craft an additional<br />Dilemma<br />
    9. 9. Recommended Solution<br />Craft one boat now, determine performance, and then based on that craft an additional<br />Based case facts: this presents the most cost effective scenario<br />Based on designer Doug Peterson’s previous design success<br />Allocate to primary boat, test the performance, then determine the success of the design as well determine alterations to be made to second boat<br />
