"When you're a challenger, you have to think differently...Golf sometimes has been slow to adapt to new ideas, so anytime you're in the position of being a challenger, you have to be willing to break the mold."

Michael Vrska, Director of Innovation at Wilson Golf

Wilson Labs uses Altair's Virtual Wind Tunnel software to test aerodynamic performance empowering them to create revolutionary new products faster. The CFD suite includes AcuFieldView, a version of FieldView for Altair CFD users designed to support engineering driven organizations like Wilson Labs.

See FieldView in action as Wilson Labs explains how they use CFD to design sporting goods, and in particular golf clubs, as featured on the 7-part Golf Channel series DRIVER vs. DRIVER.

It is "...about the expertise of the team of engineers at Wilson Labs...a good idea for a golf club is merely a start. Its execution to a finished product requires technological horsepower."

Digital Engineering tags FieldView 16.1 as the Pick of the Week

Digital Engineering Magazine Editor at Large Tony Lockwood has selected our FieldView 16.1 Update as his Pick of the Week.  

"The line on FieldView is that it's fast, easy to implement and easy to use," he says. "It works with data from leading CFD systems. It can handle huge data sets and scale from workstations to HPC (high-performance computing) resources. It helps you capture best practices and create CFD workflows that make your processes more efficient, friendly and productive."

Our thanks to Mr. Lockwood and DE for calling out our new release and making FieldView 16.1 the pick of the week!
