Alan Duerden, CAD support engineer for Renault F1 Team, will speak on developing composite racecar parts using FiberSIM software and the Renault F1 Team car will be on exhibit at the VISTAGY booth (C21).
Renault F1 Team has used FiberSIM to advance the design and manufacture of composite components on three generations of racecars, including the R25 car, which raced the team to victory in both the Federation Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) Formula One Drivers’ and Constructors’ World Championships in 2005. Alan Duerden, CAD support engineer for the team, will give a presentation titled “Champion cars, composite parts, and FiberSIM” in the VISTAGY booth at the following times:
▪ Tuesday, March 28: 10:30, 13:30, and 16:30
▪ Wednesday, March 29: 10:30, 13:30, and 16:30
