Emirates Team NZ Sails Toward America's Cup with ANSYS
Team New Zealand is the longest established brand in the America's Cup, the premier marquee event in sailing.
Every competition we've entered, we've been a Louis Vuitton finalist, won the Louis Vuitton, and on 2 occasions, won the America's Cup.
My involvement with the America's Cup on the design side goes back around 16 years and in that time we've seen the transition from physical testing, where most everything we did was done in the wind tunnel or the towing tank through. In this cup cycle, we've finally been able to get to 100% numerical analysis and digital prototyping. The productivity gains and the extra insight that's offering us are extremely valuable.
ANSYS products absolutely help us be competitive...
