Can a Better Understanding of Aerodynamics Change the Result of a Cycling Race - Webinar

In the world of professional cycling, individual time trials and team time trials are often the most impressive and decisive stages in important multistage races, such as the Tour de France, the Giro d’Italia and the Vuelta a Espana. While a lot of research and money is being invested in training riders and improving the equipment, teams still lack knowledge about the aerodynamics of individual cyclists or the interactions with the other riders and following vehicles.

ANSYS CFD solutions are being used to analyze these aerodynamic effects to optimize the performance of cyclists, whether alone or in a pack. Learn from Professor Bert Blocken of Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands and KU Leuven University in Belgium about the new research results on cycling aerodynamics that his team and their colleagues from Université de Liège have obtained in recent months.
