Thank you to everyone who entered the Student Project Competition this year. The standard was very high which made the judging difficult but the Top 3 receiving prize money and a 1-year student membership have been selected. Congratulations!
1st place – Alessia Megna
2nd place – Benjamin Hennig
3rd place – Michael Karner
The sports science laboratory at Washington State University is seeking a motivated student interested in sport CFD research. The project will consider the aerodynamic behavior of sports balls, particularly balls with seams, and how seam geometry, orientation and spin affect the ball’s trajectory. The project will also involve experimental verification using flow visualization techniques and ball trajectory using our custom pitching robot. Interested and qualified students should send a statement of interest to Professor Lloyd Smith. The closing date is January 31, 2024
The sports science laboratory at Washington State University is seeking a motivated student interested in sport impact research. The project will consider the sport of boxing, and involve characterizing equipment (especially boxing gloves), impact forces for different levels of play and punches, and compare these effects on player response (especially head acceleration). Interested and qualified students should send a statement of interest to Professor Lloyd Smith. The closing date is January 31, 2024.
Just one day left to submit your entry to the Student Competition this year and your chance to win cash prizes plus ISEA student membership. Full details are on the Student Competition page.
