News CD-adapco would like to offer our warmest congratulations to our friends and partners in the Renault F1 Team. Justifying their position as pre-race favorites, Renault drivers Giancarlo Fisichella and Fernando Alonso completely dominated the opening race of the 2005 F1 season. Starting from Pole Position, Fisichella led the Australian GP from start to finish in a faultless demonstration of precision race driving. He was joined on the podium by team-mate Fernando Alonso who narrowly missed second place in what many observers judged "the drive of the day".

As an Official Supplier of CFD and CAE technology to the Renault F1 Team, CD-adapco products continue to play a critical role in the ever improving performances of the team. The Renault F1 Team's Technical Director Bob Bell commented: "CFD technology plays a fundamental role in the design and development of a modern F1 car. The ability to simulate the behavior 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."

Post Processing Desktop Engineering has posted an interview with Tecplot CEO Mike Peery on the data visualization challenges facing engineers.
The result of CFD simulation, for example, is a set of numbers that has no physical meaning until it’s visualized in graphs, images, and animations. For visualization software to be effective, it must provide advanced technical plotting tools that help visualize simulation results in a convenient and efficient way. It must allow the user to concentrate on his numerical model, not the visual output.
