Hitachi Construction Machinery, Mitsubishi Motors, Honda R&D and Tsukuba University to Speak at Exa Japan's 7th PowerFLOW

Hitachi Construction Machinery, Mitsubishi Motors, Honda R&D and Tsukuba
University to Speak at Exa Japan's 7th PowerFLOW Solution Forum

BURLINGTON, Mass. and YOKOHAMA, Japan, June 12, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Exa^®
Corporation (Nasdaq:EXA), a global innovator of fluids simulation solutions
for product engineering, announced the keynote speakers for its seventh Exa
Japan PowerFLOW^® Solution Forum to be held June 13^th, 2014 at the Tokyo
Conference Center Shinagawa.

The PowerFLOW Solution Forum is a conference for industry professionals
seeking to learn about state-of-the-art simulation-driven design solutions
from global experts. Invited speakers from leading companies will highlight
their aerodynamic, thermal and acoustic simulation successes and how Exa's
suite of simulation tools has been a key part of their product development
process. Exa Japan will welcome the following distinguished guest presenters:

  *Mr. Kazuhisa Tamura, Hitachi Construction Machinery Co. Ltd., Chief of
    Research Department, will be the keynote speaker at this event. As Chief
    of Hitachi's Validation Center, Mr. Tamura will discuss the importance of
    an integrated approach to product engineering that balances simulations
    with physical testing. He will elaborate on Hitachi's deployment of Exa's
    thermal solutions, and the future of fluid analysis simulation in
    construction and equipment development. Mr. Tamura will discuss how, given
    increasing environmental regulations and safety standards, Exa simulations
    are a key to their product development process to achieve the performance
    and quality goals Hitachi demands.
  *Mr. Yasuhiko Okutsu, Mitsubishi Motors Corporation, will highlight
    Mitsubishi's evaluation of automotive side mirror noise though aerodynamic
    and aeroacoustic simulation — focusing on minimizing vehicle noise for
    maximum passenger comfort early in the design process.
  *Mr. Takeshi Asai, Tsukuba University, has performed extensive analysis
    using Exa PowerFLOW software for sports innovation. Mr. Asai will present
    his aerodynamic results of the effect of the dihedral angle on ski jump
    body suits and aerodynamically optimizing the newly engineered, 2014 World
    Cup soccer ball using Exa's Lattice Boltzmann-based physics.
  *Mr. Koauke Masuzawa, Honda R&D Co., Ltd. Automobile R&D Center, Mr.
    Masuzawa will discuss how Honda R&D is tackling the complicated problem of
    thermal efficiency in vehicle cabins. Mr. Masuzawa's team has been
    successful in demonstrating the impact of how early stage evaluation using
    simulation solvers capable of long term unsteady prediction, like Exa
    PowerFLOW and PowerTHERM^®, can achieve accurate results.

In addition to these distinguished guests, global experts from Exa Corporation
will highlight real world, state-of-the-art simulation application discussions
including: creating fuel efficient designs though aero/thermal simulation;
assessing total vehicle noise though aeroacoustic simulation to improve
passenger comfort; and optimizing designs efficiently through automated design
space exploration.

"Achieving product efficiency though cost-effective simulation is a topic that
all manufacturers are interested in," commented Kazuhito Ishikawa, Vice
President, Asia, Exa Corporation. "We are pleased to bring such a
distinguished group of experts together to present at our 7^th PowerFLOW
Forum. Our global customers are always finding new, innovative ways to
maximize the benefits of simulation throughout their product development
process, and we are honored to have them share their successes at our
