Cradle Conducts Aerodynamic Analyses for Gran Turismo 6

December 2013/ -- Gran Turismo is a worldly known car racing game for PlayStation, developed by Sony Computer Entertainment. The realistic vehicle motions achieved in the racing scenes have been highly regarded for its innovative technology implemented.
 To achieve even more realistic motions of aerodynamics, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) was introduced in Gran Turismo 6. SC/Tetra, an all-in-one general purpose CFD software developed by Software Cradle, was used to conduct calculations.
