McGill Racing Team Uses STAR-CCM+ to design MRT15

McGill used STAR-CCM+ to do the full design work on their MRT15 racing package, and found the results were very accurate to wind tunnel tests and actual racing conditions. 


CFD Simulation for Student Design Competition Teams

The CD-adapco Academic Team has recently made a brand new Linked In group for Student Design Competitions. This Group is dedicated to Student Design Competition Teams around the world who are interested in achieving engineering success through the use of CFD Simulation.  Learn how leading commercial companies and motorsport teams are applying CFD simulation to improve aerodynamic performance, calculate down force and drag, design optimization and more.  Join the growing number of teams optimizing their performance through CFD simulation with STAR-CCM+

Connect with the new Linked In group now!

CD-adapco recently visited the KORA (KOomin Racing) FSAE Team at Kookmin University in Seoul, Korea. Below are selected images from the visit.
