Exa Optimized, Gold Medal Winning USA Bobsled Heads to Sochi

In 2010, the Bo-Dyn Bobsled Project looked to Exa's aerodynamic simulations to help them create a sled that would change history and put the USA four-man team back on the podium — and it worked. Exa® Corporation (Nasdaq:EXA), a global innovator of fluids simulation solutions for product engineering, helped Bo-Dyn overhaul and aerodynamically optimize the entire chassis; the result was a record-breaking bobsled that brought home a 2010 Olympic victory for the USA. Now, four years later, much of the new four-man Bo-Dyn sled that USA's Steven Holcomb will once again pilot has changed, but one thing remains the same — the aerodynamically optimized chassis of the sled.
