Red Bull Racing Formula One
team continues to accelerate its performance with industry-leading engineering
simulation software. Through an extended agreement, Red Bull Racing Formula One
will leverage Ansys’ cutting-edge technology to optimise its vehicle design
enhancements and aiming to give the team a competitive edge on the track.
During a race, aerodynamic
design can be a major differentiator to the performance of vehicles on a track.
With limited physical testing available and impending race deadlines, the use
of simulation in the aerodynamic design of the vehicle is vital. Ansys’ computational
fluid dynamics (CFD) and high-performance computing (HPC) software enables Red
Bull Racing to simulate air flows around its vehicle designs under a range of
conditions. This enables the team to assess, select and optimise designs for
aero-critical components and assemblies, such as braking, cooling and exhaust
“Working closely with Ansys to
manage and deliver our extensive CFD requirements has been a very successful
partnership for us, delivering real improvements in our turnaround time and
accuracy of simulation,” said Nathan Sykes, head of numerical tools and
technologies, Red Bull Racing, adding that “Virtual simulation and analysis now
makes up such a significant part of our design process, it’s essential to be
working closely with the CFD industry’s leading software supplier – and
certainly contributes to our competitive advantage on track.”
“We’re excited to continue our
ongoing collaboration with Red Bull Racing and further enable the team to
overcome increasingly difficult design challenges,” said Sandeep Sovani,
Director of Global Automotive Industry at Ansys. “Teams are always looking for
a competitive edge, and simulation provides it with cutting-edge, fast and
reliable tools to validate and optimize every aspect of a race car throughout
the design process with complete accuracy and confidence,” Sovani added.
