News Building on a successful 2004 Formula 1 season and following victory at the Monaco Grand Prix, the Renault F1 Team is continuing to enhance its CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) capabilities through an extended relationship with the CD adapco Group. CD adapco will retain its status as an Associate Supplier to the team.

CFD plays a key role in modern Formula 1, in the modelling of aerodynamic components and their performance, but also in engine development through advanced in-cylinder simulation. The Renault F1 Teamís design engineers use the CD adapco Groupís CFD code STAR-CD and its associated expert system tool es-aero as an integral part of their aerodynamic development, while in the engine field, the CD adapco Groupís tool es-ice is used for designing the combustion system, accelerating the design process by eliminating costly prototyping and testing phases.

The Renault F1 Teamís Technical Director Bob Bell commented: ďCFD technology plays a fundamental role in the design and development of a modern F1 car. The ability to simulate the behaviour and performance of our designs quickly and accurately has a direct influence on our on-track performance. We are pleased to continue our relationship with CD adapco, an acknowledged leader in this field.Ē
