Exa Corporation, a part Dassault Systemes Company, a global innovator in simulation software for product engineering, has launched the new version of its flagship simulation suite, PowerFLOW. This release delivers breakthrough innovations in each of Exa's four strategic software development areas: Accuracy, Applications, Automation, and Accessibility. PowerFLOW 5.3c introduces new capabilities which improve real-world accuracy and the digital simulation process:
About Exa PowerFLOW. PowerFLOW is based on an extended Lattice Boltzmann method that we refer to as DIGITAL PHYSICS. This inherently transient, inherently numerically stable, patented technology enables PowerFLOW to predict fluid flow with a level of accuracy and insight into flow behavior better than possible with physical testing or traditional computational fluid dynamics (CFD) methods. With PowerFLOW, a single, fully detailed geometric model and a single physics model is used for all aerodynamic, aeroacoustic, and thermal simulations - an approach we call TotalANALYSIS. This allows rapid cross-disciplinary trade-off studies, and reduces the time and expertise required to perform the analysis.
- SOLID SOLUTIONS FOR TRANSPORTATION PowerFLOW accurately simulates fluid flow design problems for numerous transportation industry sectors including: Automotive, Commercial Vehicle, Off-Highway, Train, Motorsport, Motorcycle, Military Vehicle, Bus, Aerospace and others. - DIGITAL WIND TUNNEL For validation with experimental data it's important to simulate the physical wind tunnel setup along with the For external flow studies, PowerFLOW comes with ready-to-use parametric digital wind tunnel templates for aerodynamic and aeroacoustic simulations. - TRUE ROTATING GEOMETRY PowerFLOW's ability to simulate true rotating geometry enables practical and accurate prediction of noise and performance of HVAC and cooling fans-simply not possible using standard rotating reference frame models. It also improves accuracy for any application that has rotating components and is transient in nature. - RAPID SIMULATION TURN-AROUND TIME * PowerFLOW is architected from the ground up for operation in high performance computing environments in order to achieve the fastest possible simulation times-providing near linear scalability up to hundreds of processor cores * One model, many simulations: once a surface mesh model is prepared, our best practices detail how the same model may be used to perform additional simulations (such as thermal or aeroacoustic) using Exa's integrated suite of products. - COUPLED SIMULATIONS PowerFLOW seamlessly couples with other Exa applications to perform expanded applications: * PowerTHERM: predicts surface temperatures and heat fluxes generated with fully coupled state-of-the-art radiation and conduction solver * PowerCOOL: predicts heat exchanger performance and top tank temperatures with fully coupled cooling system simulation model * PowerACOUSTICS: predicts and analyzes aeroacoustic noise
About Exa Corporation. Exa Corporation's visualization and simulation software helps designers and engineers produce better vehicles and equipment. As a design evolves, Exa accurately predicts the performance of that design while providing actionable insight to optimize the performance of the product. With Exa, the need for costly physical prototypes and expensive late-stage changes is reduced.
Now, designers and engineers are freed from the risk of producing compromised products that do not meet market and regulatory requirements. Some of the most successful product companies in the world use Exa, including BMW, Delphi, Denso, Fiat Chrysler, Ford, Hino, Honda, Hyundai, Jaguar Land Rover, Kenworth, Komatsu, MAN, Nissan, Peterbilt, Peugeot, Renault, Scania, Toyota, Volkswagen and Volvo Trucks.
Dassault Systèmes successfully completed the acquisition of Exa Corporation on November 17, 2017. The Exa products will be part of the growing multiphysics simulation portfolio of SIMULIA, a Dassault Systèmes brand.
