Ferrari zooms past competition with ANSYS simulation

|December 17, 2014 0

PITTSBURGH, USA: With ANSYS simulation in the driver’s seat, Ferrari has been able to secure the 2014 FIA World Endurance Championship drivers’, teams’ and manufacturers’ titles in the GTE Pro class.

ANSYS computational fluid dynamics (CFD) solutions help Ferrari maintain aerodynamic performance, including reducing overall drag, maximizing downforce and optimizing its complex brake cooling systems – essential elements in keeping the car running properly. As a result, Ferrari engineers have extensively automated the simulation process and run multiple design iterations to improve speed, reliability and safety.

“When races can stretch from six to 24 hours, car reliability is absolutely crucial,” said Enrico Cardile, responsible for aerodynamics, thermal management and air conditioning at Ferrari. “With ANSYS simulation, our engineers can quickly evaluate a range of product design ideas across varied operating conditions, leading to enhanced product performance and integrity.”
