MSC Adams Vehicle Dynamics Technology Allows Ford to Design, Develop and Optimize Race Vehicle Performance.
Ford Racing Technology, the engineering operations behind the success of Ford's storied racing history, used multibody dynamics simulation software Adams to run complex race car dynamics simulations for the design, development and optimization of race vehicles in various racing series at different race tracks. Extreme performance requirements and series mandated race car regulations constantly drive Ford Racing Technology to push the limits of its engineering capabilities using simulation software like Adams to leverage their engineers' expertise in developing and tuning winning race vehicles.
"Just like on the race track, speed is essential in race car simulation," said Patrick DiMarco, Vehicle Dynamics and Electronics Supervisor for Ford Racing. "Any refinements achieved in the engineering simulation process will lead to better performance on the track. MSC.Software's Adams and NASTRAN give us an advantage on the race track. The company's engineering simulation platform has allowed us to design and optimize race car performance for races such as the NASCAR Sprint Cup and Nationwide series, as well as the NHRA."
"Being successful on the track requires a combination of highly skilled, innovative engineers, strong teamwork and the use of state-of-the-art simulation technologies," said Bill Weyand, Chief Executive Officer, MSC.Software. "Ford Racing Technology's innovative use of Adams technology has produced winning cars in all aspects. The racing world counts in seconds and every small advantage implemented through engineering simulation can translate into huge margins of victory. Using Adams, Ford Racing continues its storied history be one of the most elite names in the world of motor sports."
