The end-user was Trek Bicycle Corporation, a bicycle manufacturer. It is one of the fourteen case studies published in the UberCloud Compendium 2015. Other case studies include topics as cancer genomics, aerodynamics optimizations, coronary artery flow, aircraft wing fluid structure interaction, heat transfer on thermoplastic olefins, microelectronic packaging, wind turbine aerodynamics, frontal car crash, duct elbow optimization, acoustic modelling, and parametric radio frequency heating.
