The PowerFLOW Solution Forum is a conference for industry professionals seeking to learn about state-of-the-art simulation-driven design solutions. Invited speakers from leading companies will highlight their aerodynamic, thermal and acoustic simulation successes and how Exa PowerFLOW has been a key part of their product development process. Exa Japan will welcome the following distinguished guest presenters:
- Mr. Hiroyuki Shiozawa, Nissan Motor Company Ltd., will present on Nissan's success in reducing aerodynamic drag through PowerFLOW simulation and their quest to realize a full digital design process and thus eliminate physical wind tunnel testing
- Dr. Kazuomi Yamamoto, Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), will discuss JAXA's pursuit of aircraft jet noise reduction and the techniques and Exa simulation solutions they have implemented
- Dr. Yuji Kodama, Yokohama Rubber Company Ltd., will emphasize the importance of whole vehicle aerodynamic drag simulation and Yokohama Rubber's use of PowerFLOW to evaluate the impact of tire shape on fuel consumption
- Mr. Motohiro Kitada, Denso Corporation, will highlight Denso's success in dramatically reducing cabin noise though HVAC flow-induced noise prediction simulations using Exa PowerFLOW and PowerACOUSTICS ® products
