The athlete concentrates on putting every available advantage to work for a faster time, a better score, a winning edge. Not surprisingly, performance on the playing field goes far beyond the athlete. The design of sports equipment is big business. While nothing takes the place of proper training and conditioning, elite competitors depend on the smallest refinements in equipment to help make a difference in their performance.

ANSYS works with organizations in the sports equipment industry to improve the design and the performance of everything from balls and racquets to skis and bicycles to swimsuits and canoes. Engineering simulation provides a virtual prototyping environment in which a designer can cost-effectively test the performance of equipment under various conditions.

Engineering simulation solutions from ANSYS have been chosen by winning teams in the last few Olympics in categories such as bobsled, sailing, skiing, rowing and swimming. The unequalled technical depth within each engineering simulation — fluid flow, structural analysis, thermal behavior and electromagnetics — means ANSYS is able to offer best-in-class solutions to sports equipment manufacturers who do not want to compromise performance for cost.
