Women have more separated flow

Textile & Apparel - Supercomputing for Olympics swimsuit designs

So, the obvious  is proven with a super computer. Interesting application. I assume that they use a shaved skin for the human. I wonder how they got the measurements and made the muscles move between each case. They would have to regenerate the grid many times. I also wonder how they put in the energy that the swimmer added to the flow. I bet that they were analyzing cases where the swimmer is mostly "coasting" and they cared more about drag.
