High-Performance Racing Meets High-Performance Computing: How Auto Racing Benefits from Big Compute

In the world of auto racing, finding even the smallest competitive advantage is the difference between winning and losing. That’s why Richard Childress Racing (RCR) designs and builds their race cars end-to-end with the aid of virtual prototypes. RCR’s engineering staff of over 50 world-class engineers, including eight aerodynamicists, meticulously designs, simulates and optimizes the car body airflow for on-track performance using ANSYS Fluent, a commercially-available CFD simulation tool.

Watch this webinar recording to learn how RCR is running half-billion cell models with Rescale’s turnkey, scalable, state-of-the-art platform for running ANSYS software in the cloud. Hear how Rescale’s big compute platform has enabled RCR to significantly improve their design process and on-track performance, and how it is driving the future of its high-performance stock car racing development.
