Application: Push-Button Design Optimization of a Race Car Front Wing
Posted Tue April 21, 2020 @03:00PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application CAD-Based Design Optimization of a Race Car Front Wing, a joint webinar from Pointwise and Phoenix Integration about automated meshing enabled push-button design optimization has been released.

If you have ever seen the front wing of a Formula 1 vehicle, you would think you are staring at a piece of modern art and not one of the greatest contributors to the downforce and handling of the vehicle. Current front wing designs are intricate and no two are the same, a testament to the complexity of the flowfield experienced by each vehicle as it makes its way around the track.
