Formula-SAE & Formula Student Team Sponsorships
ANSYS provides engineering simulation software for Society of Automotive Engineering (SAE) student members participating in Formula SAE and Formula Student competitions. In both activities, students use simulation technology to virtually prototype — then build and test — many aspects of a small formula-style racing car. Because of restrictions related to the car frame, suspension and engines, competition is fierce — and a large percentage of the winning teams employ ANSYS tools.
Students are challenged to seek out the absolute best performance from their vehicles. Teams build their cars over a period of about one year; annual national and international competitions pit teams against each other in a range of areas, from design to car performance to budgeting to marketing.
