Profile: Exa Corp (EXA.OQ)
8 Dec 2016
Exa Corporation, incorporated on March 18, 1998, develops, sells and supports simulation software and services that manufacturers use in design and engineering processes. The Company focuses primarily on the ground transportation market, including manufacturers in the passenger vehicle, highway truck, off-highway vehicle and train markets, as well as their suppliers. Its product, PowerFLOW, is a software solution for simulating fluid flow problems, including aerodynamics, thermal management and aeroacoustics, or wind noise. PowerFLOW uses its Digital Physics technology that enables it to predict fluid flows. PowerFLOW directly simulates unpredictable turbulent scales. The PowerFLOW software suite includes the simulation engine and grid generation engine, along with pre- and post-processing software products. The software is delivered in client/server architecture, or through its cloud-based offering, ExaCLOUD. With the ExaCLOUD solution, various client features and functions are accessed through a Web browser, and all of the computational intensive processes are run in its hosted computing environment.
PowerDELTA with PowerCLAY
The Company's PowerDELTA with PowerCLAY streamlines and automates the simulation model preparation process by applying parametric feature modeling and history tree model management to the process of simulation model creation and update. PowerDELTA includes PowerCLAY morphing technology that allows users to perform real-time morphing of models for design optimization.
The Company's PowerCASE creates, edits and compiles a PowerFLOW simulation case. The compiled case file controls the construction of the simulation grid produced by the discretizer (PowerFLOW's grid generator), which in turn drives the actual simulation.
The Company's PowerFLOW is its core product. PowerFLOW incorporates its Digital Physics technology and simulates fluid dynamics.
The Company's PowerTHERM couples with PowerFLOW to predict surface temperatures generated by thermal radiation and conduction. It also predicts heat fluxes.
The Company's PowerCOOL couples with PowerFLOW to calculate the heat transfer between a heat exchanger and the cooling airflow. It integrates into the PowerFLOW work flow.
The Company's PowerINSIGHT is a graphical user interface that offers a library of user configurable templates. It allows users to interactively browse these results to gain insight into their simulation and generate reports in a range of formats, including PowerPoint.
The Company's PowerVIZ is a visualization and analysis application used for processing simulation results from PowerFLOW and spectral analysis results from PowerACOUSTICS. It provides a range of tools to perform analyses, an interactive user interface and the ability to process large data sets.
The Company's PowerACOUSTICS enables pressure fluctuation prediction and noise source identification. It also enables wind noise transmission to interior and sound package parameter study capabilities.
ExaCLOUD Simulation Platform
The Company's ExaCLOUD provides PowerFLOW simulation preparation and analysis functionality through a browser. It also manages the simulation server in the cloud.
The Company competes with CD-adapco, ANSYS and OpenFOAM.
