HPC and Racecar Design

SESSION: HPC Impact Showcase Tuesday

EVENT TYPE: HPC Impact Showcases

TIME: 10:20AM - 11:00AM


ROOM:Booth 3947

In professional motorsports, performance is measured by small margins fractions of a second and thousandths of an inch. Close competition leads to tight regulation, which in turn escalates costs. Significant resources are needed to gain small advantages. Aerodynamics is crucial to vehicle performance. Unfortunately, field testing aerodynamic systems is extraordinarily expensive. Most automotive engineers now use computational fluid dynamics to develop car bodies and cooling systems. In this talk, I discuss how Michael Waltrip racing uses high-performance computing to accelerate our design/test cycle. Topics include application development, resource acquisition, and results validation. Michael Waltrip Racing is a professional stock car racing organization in Cornelius, NC. The company designs, builds, tests, and fields three teams in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.
