Oldendorff is working with MIT’s Center for Bits and Atoms (CBA) to try to tap into some of the nuances of aerospace design to make breakthroughs in naval architecture. Together, they will investigate disruptive improvements in ship design and propulsion to achieve the IMO 2030/50 requirements. The initial focus will be on improving hydrodynamic efficiency, which builds on work CBA has been doing with the aerospace and automotive industries. Anticipated research areas include morphing structures, hydrodynamic cloaking, moving boundary layers, and alternative energy sources.
