Sport Webinar Series: Optimizing Stadiums for the UEFA Euro 2016 Championship - Webinar

This year, the Stade de France in Paris will be the main stadium for the UEFA Euro tournament held every four years to determine the best national football (soccer) team in Europe. While the players have been training to get in the best shape possible for this important series, the engineers who design the stadiums have been running simulations to maximize the safety, comfort and functionality of the stadiums for the players, fans and news media.

Learn from Dr. Twan van Hooff of KU Leuven University in Belgium how he used ANSYS CFD to analyze wind patterns and their impact on stadium stability, natural ventilation and keeping people dry on a rainy day. Also, Dr. Juliano Mologni from ESSS in Brazil will review how ANSYS electromagnetic simulation solutions help ensure stable communications in a complex stadium crowded with signals from television crews, cell phones, and cameras that help referees make the right call.
