Accelerating Progress with
Cadence Fidelity CFD Technology

Formula One racing features some of the highest performing cars on earth. Shaving fractions of seconds off of race times can make all the difference in the world when it comes to finishing on the podium or missing out. 

McLaren Racing continually strives to improve aerodynamic performance while maintaining sufficient downforce on the track. Cadence Fidelity CFD software enables race teams to improve performance and deliver results on Grand Prix weekends.

Unprecedented Accuracy

Fidelity CFD includes technological innovations that break through the limitations of traditional technologies. The advanced high-order solver delivers advanced simulations targeting turbulence to predict aerodynamic drag by up to 10X more accurately versus traditional approaches.

Very Fast Turnaround Time

Our new massively parallel architecture reduces turnaround time from weeks to a day or less for complex structures such as a racecar. Our proven meshing technology provides up to a 3X speed-up versus alternative solutions and is widely used in applications that require accuracy and performance.

One Streamlined Workflow

Building on our computational software expertise, Fidelity CFD unites all the compelling technologies a CFD engineer needs to simulate the performance of multiphysics systems in a streamlined workflow, from meshing all the way to post-processing.

Customizable CFD Solutions for Your Workflow

Many of today’s most complex systems require CFD simulation to truly understand the interaction of air flow and fluids in real-world scenarios. Like many other industries, Formula One racing relies on these technological advancements and simulation capabilities to address aerodynamic principles to ensure the highest level of performance, reliability.
