Speed UP! 3D Simulation with Ansys Software for enhanced performance

Student teams benefit from free Ansys tools, support, training courses and individual advisory services provided by CADFEM simulation experts


The excitement is rising and the curtain is about to go up for participants of the Formula Student, Solar Challenge, Electronic Design Competition, Solar Splash, SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Design, Racing Aeolus and the Human Powered Vehicle Challenge. The rollout shows the development successes achieved in recent months. Simulation leaves nothing to chance.

Successful Teams

Simulation supports teams throughout the entire racing year, from fast onboarding of new team members to success on the track in the final race of the season.


Putting Ansys CFD to intense use

"The 3D aerodynamic simulations are almost completely automated. This makes getting started a great deal easier for new team members."

Green Voltage Racing

Endurance mastered through lightweight construction

"With FEM and optimization, we managed to lower the stresses occurring for many individual components and reduce the overall weight by 60 kg."

Student Teams Support

The creativity and the technical accomplishments of the student teams are amazing. Whenever we meet at the race track or the CADFEM Simulation Conference, I’m always impressed by their enthusiasm and thirst for knowledge.

Frequently asked questions on sponsoring

Below you will find relevant information and assistance that is frequently requested. Do you have any further questions, suggestions or requests? Then feel free to contact us.

What licenses does a CADFEM-sponsored team receive?

The sponsorship contains an extensive license package, consisting of five Academic Research licenses for each of the products Ansys Mechanical CFD, Ansys EM and Ansys HFSS. Up to 32 cores with Ansys HPC can also be used simultaneously for challenging models.

How do we get support for our technical questions?

Sponsored teams can contact CADFEM Support with all the technical questions they have. Because simulation is more than software, the CADFEM sponsorship package also includes free participation in seminars, webinars, the annual Formula Student Workshop and the CADFEM Simulation Conference. You can also take advantage of customized project consulting.

What prerequisites does our team have to meet to obtain sponsorship?

There are no special prerequisites. In exchange for the sponsorship, your team agrees to a marketing package with logo placement, sponsor listing on your website or social media presence as well as a report on your use of the software at the end of the season. We are more than happy to provide details on the marketing obligations on request!

How do we get the Ansys licenses and who manages them?

Once your team has registered, you’ll receive the Ansys license contract from us. In the contract, you name a contact person and submit license server data. As soon as we receive the signed license contract from you, you will receive the license key from us. You then install it yourself on a license server of your choice.

How long are the licenses valid for?

The validity period is always 12 months, but can be extended. Be sure to think about extending before the period expires!

The number of workstations included in the package isn’t enough for us. What can we do?

Every sponsorship package contains five workstation licenses for every available type of physics. If that isn’t enough, together with you we will find an affordable solution to cover your license needs. Contact us!

We’re having trouble with the software. Can we get help?

If you experience technical problems, you can contact the experts of the CADFEM Support team free of charge. CADFEM also offers you a wide variety of other advisory services and training options.
