Case Study:
From Optimization Emerges the GENESIS of the Corvette Daytona Prototype

Pratt & Miller has spent the last decade winning multiple endurance championships with production based Corvettes, so when General Motors approached us to work on a new Corvette Prototype Class car for the Grand Am Series, we knew we were facing an exciting opportunity not only to develop a prototype class racecar but also to take advantage of our recent advancements in optimization based design using the Genesis software from Vanderplaats Research & Development, Inc. Aptly named, Genesis is a unique structural Finite Element Analysis (FEA) code created for optimization. Despite acquiring this tool set 12 short months ago, Genesis has gained widespread use in-house.
