HONDA Testifies a Major Breakthrough in Meshing Speed with NUMECA’s AutoSeal and HEXPRESS™/Hybrid

Application I'm sure you have heard it before, "80% of the time spent on CFD simulation for aerodynamics is used just for preparing the set-up of the case". Typical challenges in the simulation preparation process are still: poor quality of the available CAD, resulting in dirty geometries containing holes and cavities, complex geometries, resulting in a large amount of manual input to create a quality mesh, and difficulty to quickly create design alternatives for iterative testing.

NUMECA’s challenge for advancing its meshing tools, and staying ahead of the CFD race, is therefore clear: achieve the fastest possible turnaround times for the highest quality of meshes. With the latest version of HEXPRESS™/Hybrid incorporating AutoSeal, we have done just that.

HONDA has been using HEXPRESS™/Hybrid for many years now for their automotive designs, and the AutoSeal technology made a real difference for them. Closing the holes and cavities of their cabin model with AutoSeal made a huge difference in speed, with the same excellent, detailed result.

Mr. Akio Takamura from HONDA Automotive testifies: “A skilled engineer typically needed one full week to close all the holes of the cabin space. Thanks to AutoSeal this is now reduced to 1 hour! It's robust too, we tested it on 10 different models with 100% success rate.”

Faster turnaround times will enable our automotive customers to save millions of euros on digital prototypes every year. And it will allow the engineers to dedicate their time to what counts: optimizing their designs.
