Cosworth Racing Choose FE-Safe as Standard Durability Analysis Software Tool

Cosworth Racing is and always has been a recognised centre of excellence for automotive engineering in the UK. In keeping with this, Cosworth Racing has chosen fe-safe* , the most technically advanced durability analysis software suite for FE models, as its standard durability analysis software suite. The software will be used by Cosworth Racing in the design and analysis of major castings, such as cylinder heads and crankcases, as well as pistons, crankshafts and connecting rods, for their world class engines.

Hywel Thomas, Senior Engineer, F1 Design and Development, explained:

'fe-safe* has a number of unique capabilities which are important to us, in particular the advanced high temperature fatigue capability. The speed of analysis and ease of use were also very important issues which

fe-safe* scored highly on as well as being very compatible with our current design and analysis processes'.

Cosworth aims to use fe-safe* not just to increase the reliability of its engine components but also to reduce development times and costs in the design process. fe-safe* will be used to optimise existing components and develop new ones.
