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
  *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

In addition to these distinguished guests, experts from Exa Corporation will
highlight the soon to be released PowerFLOW 5 platform — the next generation
of Exa's DIGITAL PHYSICS^®, discuss aerodynamic impact of tires on vehicle
flows, and multi-disciplinary optimization solutions for off-highway vehicle

"PowerFLOW's highly-accurate simulations of fully-detailed production models
have made it perfectly suited for the engineering needs of these prestigious
companies," remarked Kazuhito Ishikawa, Managing Director, Exa Japan. "We are
honored to have such a distinguished group of presenters share their
experiences and successes. It will be a great conference for all engineers
currently facing the need to better optimize their products though
cost-effective aero, thermal or acoustics simulations."

Conference registrations for the PowerFLOW Solution Forum are still being
accepted. Please contact Exa Japan at or visit for more information.
