Michael Waltrip Throttles Up a Digital Simulation Edge
Michael Waltrip Racing's secret weapon coming off of its competitive NASCAR racing season is the combination of CD-adapco's Star-CCM+ CFD tools and wind tunnel testing. (Source: Michael Waltrip Racing)
Beth, this is where CAE codes make a big difference. It is possible to explore a large part of the design space in the computer. This gives the design team the ability find optimal, or near optimal, parameters for their rel-world testing.
Another interesting aspect is the cloud for CFD. These are highly parallel simulations that seem more amenable to massive parallel solutions. It is also interesting to see that this is a public cloud solution.
The 3D printing revolution seems to have a knack for quickly moving technology ahead by way of collaborative effort and even a little friendly competition -- all of course in the name of scientific advancement.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
