Simulation Mosaic Networking Accelerates Race Car Simulation
Ferrari Competizioni GT uses the simulation solution Ansys Fluent for the development of their racing car. With new features like Mosaic Poly Hexcore networking in Ansys Fluent, Ferrari engineers can optimize the aerodynamic performance of their elite racing cars and run three times as many simulations in the same time as before.
Ferrari Competizioni GT uses Ansys simulation software to develop next-generation vehicle designs. The Ferrari Competizioni GT development team aims to develop a racing GT every two to three years. This production efficiency is part of the team's success. In the past, Ansys Fluent Meshing was used to develop turbulence models and solver technologies to take race car performance to the next level.
With the introduction of the new system, Mosaic poly hexcore networking simulation process could be significantly accelerated once again. Automated workflows and parallelization helped to further reduce development time, create high-quality networks faster and solve them with Ansys Fluent in less time. In total, Ferrari Competizioni GT was able to run three times more simulations without requiring additional development time and resources.
Mosaic Networking Accelerates Simulation Considerably
“Mosaic networking has a significant impact on our aerodynamic designs. We achieve higher accuracy with far fewer cells, and calculations are possible in half the time," says Ferdinando Cannizzo, head of GT race car development at Ferrari Competizioni GT. “With Mosaic technology and the smooth end-to-end workflow, our team runs three times as many simulations in the same time and develops cars faster than ever before."
“Ferrari Competizioni's GT racing cars are leaders in racing performance and we are proud to contribute our simulation technology to achieving even more victories on the track," adds Sandeep Sovani, Director of Global Automotive Industry at Ansys. "Racing teams are always looking for performance advantages. Mosaic networking maximizes production efficiency and allows for shorter development times by accelerating all phases of the simulation process and thus answering design issue at an early stage."
