ANSYS Simulation Technology Enables Ferrari To Race Past The Competition
With ANSYS (NASDAQ: ANSS) engineering simulation technology behind the steering wheel, Ferrari raced past the competition to win the Manufacturers’ and Drivers’ World Championship titles and the Team’s Trophy in the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC).

Securing its fifth WEC constructor’s title and twenty-fourth overall, Ferrari uses ANSYS computational fluid dynamics (CFD) solutions to maintain best-in-class endurance-oriented aerodynamic performance. With ANSYS, the engineers can maximize downforce, minimize tire degradation and optimize airflow around the car to keep critical components within the ideal temperature operating ranges — essential elements for outpacing competitors.

“With race times lasting anywhere from six to 24 hours, speed and reliability are critical factors for cars competing in the WEC to achieve success and see the checkered flag,” said Ferdinando Cannizzo, Ferrari Competizioni GT technical coordinator. “ANSYS enables our team to quickly test multiple configurations between each lap and provides accurate insight — empowering our team to improve our speed and reliability in real time.”

“Our team has worked with Ferrari for more than 20 years and we continue to be inspired by their drive for innovation and excellence,” said Sandeep Sovani, director, industry marketing at ANSYS. “ANSYS simulation technology combined with Ferrari’s world-class products and drivers create an unstoppable force on the track, we look forward to many more trips around the track together.”
