Free Formula 1 Aerodynamics Workshop with Nicolas Perrin

F1 Aerodynamics Workshop with Nicolas Perrin

Nicolas Perrin, Founder of Perrinn Limited

In the past, SimScale hosted a Formula 1 Aerodynamics Workshop series, where we conceptualized and simulated an F1 race car. The series was a great success, and we were excited to see so many Formula 1 enthusiasts take part in it!

Many of the participants were especially excited about the aerodynamics simulation. That’s why we have decided to offer a follow-up of the free sessions of the F1 Aerodynamics Workshop, which focuses specifically on one of the key performance factors of a modern F1 car and gives F1 enthusiasts a chance to take the seat of an F1 aerodynamics specialist.

As part of this initiative, we provided several ready-to-run simulation projects of the aerodynamic in the PERRINN F1 car and offered a series of exclusive webinars with Nicolas Perrin, who performed a live analysis of the simulation results and answered participants questions:

This second webinar took place in 2016, but you can still watch the Formula 1 Aerodynamics Workshop for free on this page.

Just create a SimScale Community account for free, watch the recordings and follow the steps to perform your own simulations.
