CES Selector has been used for some pretty cool things over the years, and it’s great to hear how our solution is helping the legendary Chip Ganassi Racing Teams (CGRT) zoom towards victory.
In a video interview, Teja Mandava, Design Engineer at CGRT, explains that he was first introduced to CES Selector in 2011 when tasked with a University project to evaluate the failure of a drive shaft on a car. Teja used the PC software application to ensure that he selected the most suitable material before investing the effort to redesign the part using finite element analysis.
“When I started [at CGRT] in 2015, the team was in a bit of a slump,” Teja said. “Towards the beginning 2016 season we had to reevaluate all the tools that we had, and CES Selector was one of the ones we adopted to help the performance of our car. So far in the 2017 NASCAR season we won four races as a team and have both cars in the play offs.”
