Hexcore Meshing Improves Ferrari Simulation Productivity

Announcements Ferrari has increased its simulation productivity by 300% after leveraging ANSYS’ next-level, automated meshing capabilities, getting new designs on track in a fraction of the time taken previously.

Known for its luxury sports cars, which have become an automotive industry standard for speed and performance, Ferrari is also known for its success in Gran Turismo (GT) racing.

Every two or three years, the Ferrari Competizioni GT engineering team pushes itself to engineer an upgraded GT race car within a 12-month window. These changes must not only improve performance but must reflect new industry standards introduced by the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA). To meet this aggressive schedule and succeed in this intensely competitive environment, Ferrari identifies and applies the most innovative engineering technologies available. The team is constantly adopting the most advanced simulation capabilities, as well as best-in-class engineering simulation practices.

In the past, Ferrari engineers used CFD software to generate a finely detailed mesh around the race car, which enabled flow simulations at a very high degree of accuracy. However, creating this fine mesh and running CFD simulations on it required a high level of expertise and meant hours of hands-on time spent optimising mesh quality — resulting in a large computational size and a correspondingly long run time for each CFD study.

According to Cannizzo, Ferrari responded to this challenge by adopting ground-breaking new simulation capability in the form of mosaic meshing technology. He says: “ANSYS Fluent Mosaic-enabled poly-hexcore meshing has enabled the Ferrari Competizioni GT development team to achieve both a meaningful mesh resolution level and rapid results, achieving an even higher level of simulation accuracy with fewer cells, leading to less manual work and a much faster solution time.”
