Improving vehicle design at Honda

Computational fluid dynamics software FLUENT for CATIA V5 was chosen by Honda R for fluid flow analysis and has contributed significantly to improving design process efficiency. Honda R is a research and development subsidiary of Honda, one of the world's leading automotive manufacturers.

At Honda R, computer-aided engineering (CAE) has long been considered an important foundation in support of the company's highly advanced technology. To enhance efficiency in design and manufacturing, the company introduced computational fluid dynamics (CFD) into the design cycle as well as in research and development. 

"CATIA V5 already has structural analysis features, which now are used efficiently by designers," says Honda R chief engineer Kouhei Oosono. "Equipped with the highly reliable FLUENT solver as its core, FLUENT for CATIA V5 technology has made CFD analysis as easy as structural analysis. This has resulted in increased significance of CAE tools in our development work." The development of by ANSYS of FLUENT for CATIA V5 technology was motivated by the need to bring the superior fluid analysis capability of FLUENT software into the CATIA V5 environment. ANSYS engineers developed the product in concert with Honda.
