The new art of shipbuilding

Professor Joachim Grenestedt and his research vessel The Numerette are featured in a video piece -- The New Art of Shipbuilding -- about Grenestedt’s research and interaction with students. The Numerette is the product of more than a decade of design, testing, mathematical modeling and construction. Grenestedt, professor of mechanical engineering and mechanics and director of Lehigh’s Composites Lab, believes the craft is the largest to date made with panels of a composite sandwich material bonded to a stainless steel frame.
