for 37th America’s Cup
TRIESTE, Italy, Oct 4, 2022 – ESTECO, an independent software company, highly specialized in numerical optimization and simulation process and data management, has been once again selected as an official technical supplier of Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli Team for the 37th America’s Cup competition.
Based on this agreement, ESTECO will supply the team with its software solutions for simulation process automation, design optimization and simulation data management.
“We are proud to contribute to the development of Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli boats by providing our software solutions, modeFRONTIER and VOLTA, thus continuing the collaboration, which started since the conception of these fascinating flying hulls of the AC75 class,” said Carlo Poloni, the president of ESTECO.
“The technological challenge continues, but we believe that the use of collaborative design systems together with increasingly sophisticated simulations will help bring the most coveted trophy to Italy,” he concluded.
America’s Cup, the oldest trophy in international sport, has become a design and innovation contest where engineering meets technical accuracy. The limitations imposed by America’s Cup regulations highlight the need for simulation and multi-domain analysis. In such a context, software tools like ESTECO modeFRONTIER and VOLTA become crucial to developing and optimizing the new AC75 class boats.
Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli Team will be relying on ESTECO modeFRONTIER, the leading software solution for simulation process automation and design optimization, for the third time in a row.
The novelty of the 37th America’s Cup is that the Team will now also adopt ESTECO VOLTA, an innovative enterprise platform for Simulation Process and Data Management (SPDM). ESTECO VOLTA takes collaborative engineering to the next level thanks to its web-based interface, further contributing to the challenge of creating the best performing hull in a limited period of time, and under strict regulations.
“modeFRONTIER is one of the essential work tools of our Team, because it supports us in optimizing the hydrodynamic profiles that will form the basis for a wider 3D analysis in the wing and rudder design of the AC75,” said Andrea Vergombello, VPP and CFD optimization, of the Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli Team.
“Multidisciplinary optimization is now a crucial aspect for the design of the America’s Cup boats: having a good software that allows us to combine aerodynamic and hydrodynamic data for the parametric optimization of the hull is essential when it comes to being able to design a winning boat,” Vergombello added.
The 37th edition of the America’s Cup will be held in Barcelona, Spain in 2024.
