  1. 1. SCULPTOR “ ...where complex CFD models become clay in your hands... ” Article Reprint May 8, 2006 Dear Reader, The attached Race Tech magazine article highlights the importance of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to today’s racecar industry. But, the real story is about the ability of a world renown motorsport design company to circumvent the traditional wind-tunnel-to-road approach and go straight from CFD-developed design to the racetrack--with the help of Sculptor. Sculptor is an interactive, real-time design deformation tool for CFD applications. While CFD has been likened to a “virtual wind tunnel”, Sculptor is analogous to the “clay” used for shaping the desired component being tested in the tunnel. Advantage CFD, owned by Honda F1 Racing Team, was so confident of its capabilities, they asked to distribute the product in the European Union. The technology is drastically cutting the man-hours involved in one of the most time-consuming aspects of CFD-based shape optimization: the re- meshing of the simulation model. Sculptor is currently able to effectively answer the recurring question of engineers: “How do I improve my aerodynamic CFD designs--in the most cost-effective, timely manner?” Willem Toet, former Senior Aerodynamicist for B.A.R. Honda, succinctly summed it up: “Let’s Sculptor this.” Anyone interested in further information about this revolutionary product should contact the individuals listed below.
