Application The Honda Motorcycle R&D Center has been using Cradle SC/Tetra CFD software for nearly ten years to perform thermal analyses for key motorcycle engine components and systems.

Learn about why they selected SC/Tetra, and see some examples about how they use the tool in this narrated interview with Tomokazu Nomura, Assistant Chief Engineer in Technology Development at Honda.

As a result of using SC/Tetra, the R&D Center has radically reduced the number of model modifications needed after producing the test prototype. For the intake port, prototype tests resulted in some additional design changes, but much fewer than before CFD was used. Fewer changes were also made to the engine coolant passages, which were previously often modified after running actual tests.
