Ducati will expand its use of Altair’s computer-aided engineering (CAE) software for product development in Ducati's 200 mph-plus pursuit of racetrack success, the companies report. Altair will sponsor the team in the MotoGP World Championship, which began in Spain on July 17, 2020.
Ducati Corse is a long-standing user of Altair design and simulation tools, and the new agreement will expand this relationship in critical areas including aerodynamics, fluid dynamics, weight optimization, structural optimization, vehicle dynamics and advanced powertrain technology, according to the companies. In a sport where the difference between success and failure is often measured in milliseconds, Altair’s software will help Ducati engineers explore, optimize and implement innovative ideas more quickly and efficiently.
“We are delighted to welcome Altair as a Ducati Corse technical partner for the start of the 2020 MotoGP season. Strengthening the team’s partnership with an industry leader in advanced CAE and simulation will help extend our technology leadership in the fastest, most demanding motorcycle racing environment on the planet,” says Luigi Dall’Igna, Ducati Corse general manager.
“Altair is all about empowering talented and visionary engineers to deliver innovation and excellence. In this respect, the synergy with Ducati Corse is perfect,” says James Scapa, Altair’s chief executive officer and founder. “This new agreement means we can forge an even closer relationship through our software and consultancy to support the Ducati Corse engineering team as it transforms bold concepts into race-winning performances.”
