In this perspective, the industrial cases presented by Alenia Aermacchi, Volvo Polestar Racing, Bottero SpA and Airworks-ESTECO, all using modeFRONTIER, ‘demonstrated a strong return on investment (ROI) and scientific innovation from the use of high performance computing,’ the HPC User Forum Steering Committee stated.
At Alenia Aermacchi, the optimization platform developed by ESTECO turned essential in enhancing aerodynamic performance by 2.5% while reducing wing weight in new generation planes.
In the case presented by Airworks and ESTECO, multidisciplinary collaboration in the assembly of wind power unit rotor has been streamlined by the newly released ESTECO Enterprise Suite, allowing for a faster process and considerable resource savings.
Bottero SpA, one of the world leaders in the glass industry, leveraged modeFRONTIER optimization platform to achieve the perfect balance between optimal geometry and mechanism stability.
Polestar, the Official Volvo Racing Team, exploited ESTECO’s software to quickly pinpoint the car configuration which grants the best performance for different circuits and operating conditions. A twice-successful application: besides winning the HPC Innovation Excellence Award, the team is currently leading drivers and manufacturers championship in STCC.
