Dr. Bernard J. Korites has been involved in engineering and
scientific applications of computers for his entire career. He has
been an educator, consultant, and author of more than ten books on
geometric modelling, computer graphics, artificial intelligence,
simulation of physical processes, structural analysis and the
application of computers in science and engineering.
He has been employed by Northrop Aviation, the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, Arthur D. Little, Itek and Worcester Polytech. He has consulted for Stone and Webster Engineering, Gould Inc, Wyman Gordon, CTI Cryogenics, the US Navy, Aberdeen Proving Grounds, and others. Early in his career he developed software to find physical interference between systems of solid objects and draw 3-dimensional and stereographic views. This found wide application in the design of power plants, submarines and other systems with densely packed spaces.
