CompositesWorld is hosting a free Siemens PLM Software Inc.-sponsored webinar on Wednesday, June 21 at 2 pm EDT titled, "Renault Sport Formula One Team: Pushing the Engineering Limits with Composites."

Abstract: The Renault Sport Formula One Team faces increased pressure every year to design the “perfect” race car – one that is stiffer, lighter and faster than the last. This webinar will discuss the use of composites in race car design and the how the team’s designers use Siemens PLM Software’s Fibersim to address the challenges of designing a race car and optimize its design-to-manufacturing processes to design the perfect car. The webinar will discuss the challenges of designing a race car (reducing weight to increase speed, for example), the evolution of lightweighting and why it has become so important, the benefits of using Fibersim to design a race car, why Fibersim is the solution of choice for Renault Sport Formula One Team, and how this information translates to other markets such as production automotive

The presenter will be Ian Goddard, head of technical partnerships, Renault Sport Formula One Team.
