World class Computational Fluid Dynamics applications for developing a competitive edge

CFD sports engineering applications are really about one thing – winning. Put simply, you want something that will give you/your team an edge.

The options ICON provides in terms of CFD in sports engineering will quickly and cost effectively help you reveal the optimums. Marginal gains become easier to achieve and more regular too.

To name but a few, these might include changes to clothing, helmets, construction materials, aerodynamic design, brake cooling, environmental effects, ride heights, climatization, thermal and water management, equipment, weight re-allocation, etc.

More than any other, you can trust ICON
Now with over 30 years’ experience and expertise, we were the pioneers of open source CFD use in industry and are already helping sports teams to win. The big difference is also that we are engineers first who understand the challenges and applications of CFD from an engineering perspective i.e. we are not just expert coders with exceptional software.

With ICON CFD options, complex, multi-physics solutions become quicker, easier and cheaper than ever before. Unlimited HPC-cores, parallel runs and CFD users saves you both time and money. Most importantly, it enables unrestricted, cost-effective exploration of ideas and possibilities in early design phase.

As flexibility and cost are differentiating factors for any sports team, you’ll also be pleased to know that with ICON, there’s no requirement to be locked in to an expensive, long-term contract either.
