CCU SCIENCE IN ACTION


Faculty and students at Coastal Carolina University are doing research that might allow for underwater vehicles to operate more efficiently. They are currently building a model of a shark in order to get data on its hydrodynamics. When completed, the model will be tested in the flume in CCU's Environmental Fluids Lab. Watch video (run time 3:44) »
