Exa Corporation, a provider of fluids simulation solutions for product engineering, has released PowerDELTA 2.1. The platform automates the entire simulation mesh preparation process. According to the company, the software significantly reduces time require to create design spaces with new lattice creation techniques.
Main features of PowerDELTA 2.1 include:
- Patented, real-time morphing technology
- Adaptively fit morphing lattices to the mesh geometry for fast preparation
- The ability to easily fit multiple overlapping lattices
- Interactive 3D sorting and organization of input CAD data
- Automated, template-driven mesh generation
“The use of statistical methods to improve product designs is becoming an important part of the product development process,” stated Alexander Mackenzie, vice president of Product Management for Exa. “They are used in the early stages for design space exploration, to give design and engineering teams a complete understanding of the tradeoffs between design variables and performance requirements across the entire potential design space. They are equally used for optimization in the later stages of product development, to automatically search and refine the design to gain every last opportunity for performance improvement.”
