Participants Racing for Success in SimScale F1 Workshops

BlogCFDParticipants Racing for Success in SimScale F1 Workshops

We successfully launched the SimScale F1 Workshop last week, with nearly 500 participants attending the first online workshop on March 19th! The SimScale workshops are free and open to all engineers and students interested in simulation.

The workshop was an exciting session focused on learning the aerodynamics of an F1 car, with an excellent Q&A session with our special guest, Nic Perrin, head of trackside engineering at Manor F1 and president of PERRINN F1 Racing.

Nic presented an excellent overview of the aerodynamics of the PERRINN F1 car, and also graciously took a number of interesting questions in a Q&A. The recording of the workshop is available on YouTube.

The next workshop on the thermal stress analysis of an exhaust manifold is scheduled for Thursday, March 26th at 4:00 p.m. Central European Time. We have more than 1,000 registrants for this week, so make sure to be on time to secure your seat!

The SimScale Workshops

The workshop series consists of five one-hour courses, held on Thursdays at 4:00 p.m. Central European Time, through April 16th. The overall aim of the workshop is to conceptualize an F1 car, which will then be tested with the help of the SimScale engineering simulation platform.

Participants receive a two-week free trial period for each course, which begins one day prior to each workshop. In addition, those who join all five workshops, and complete at least one homework assignment each week, will receive an invitation for a future session of the SimScale Professional Training, at a value of 500 Euros, and a certificate of course completion for their resume.

Here is a sample of one of the submitted homework from the first week, which was a simulation of the aerodynamics of a front wing of the PERRINN F1 race car.

Additionally, we have created some helpful materials for the participants to complete their homework.

We hope to see you at the next SimScale workshops!
