ANSYS announced that for the fourth time in a row its customer, Infiniti Red Bull Racing, won the Constructor's World Championship. Three other ANSYS customers were also in the top six Formula One Series teams.
Infiniti Red Bull Racing takes advantage of ANSYS' solutions for computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and high-performance computing (HPC), in addition to physical wind tunnel testing, to enable its engineers to optimize the racecars' design. The Team saw a 30 percent increase in its total number of points compared to 2012.
"With another winning year under our belts, it's clear that ANSYS is a key component to our success," said Nathan Sykes, CFD and FEA Tools Team Leader at Infiniti Red Bull Racing. "We are confident that the speed and accuracy from ANSYS simulation solutions ultimately translates to victories on the track while helping us remain compliant with tight racing regulations."
"The F1 racing world faces many challenges, both on and off the track," said Sandeep Sovani, manager of automotive strategy at ANSYS. "Compressed development timelines and strict design and testing regulations often force design engineers to work in overdrive. Without simulation to validate and optimize each component in race cars, teams risk overlooking possible design advantages as they try to keep pace."
