Aerodynamic Performance- Renault F1 team
Siemens Digital Industries Software solutions enable aerodynamic efficiency and accurate production of composite components. The dynamic between grip and drag dictates design preparation for each race in the Formula One calendar. A large rear wing creates the downforce required for tight cornering. Seventy percent of a car’s performance stems directly from its aerodynamic behavior. The use of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software is critical and, for over 15 years, the company has been using Simcenter STAR-CCM+ software from product lifecycle management (PLM) specialist Siemens Digital Industries Software.
