Exa’s Dr. Ales Alajbegovic discusses the limitations of vehicle physical testing. He describes how physical prototypes of vehicles are extremely expensive to produce and are often only available late in the design process. Beyond that, physical prototypes will never allow engineers to see into the flow structures of certain areas so engineers never fully understand why certain things are happening. Exa PowerFLOW simulations allow vehicle OEMs to dive into the data and visualize the flow structures and truly see the details  for a thorough understanding of the vehicle.
