SimScale and Simerics Announce Strategic Partnership, Making High-Fidelity CFD Available in the Cloud

Simerics-MP Mesher and Simerics-MP Solver are now exclusively available on the cloud through the SimScale engineering simulation platform. The latest release of SimScale provides engineers with unmatched affordability, usability, and accuracy. Engineers have immediate access to turbomachinery digital prototyping early in the design stage, throughout the entire R&D cycle, and across the entire enterprise.

Munich, Germany and Boston, MA, USA (September 9, 2021) – SimScale, the maker of the world’s first cloud-native platform for engineering simulation, announced today the release of the latest technology investments to make simulation more accessible to the turbomachinery and industrial equipment industries.

Engineers can now access Simerics-MP technology in the cloud through the SimScale engineering simulation platform. This integration provides engineers with the accessibility of SimScale and the power of Simerics, providing new modern workflows that save thousands of dollars in CFD model setup, hardware upgrade and maintenance, and waiting times. This exclusive partnership provides the simulation community with a single source for high-end CFD analysis on the cloud, at an affordable price and with the speed and accuracy needed to match and reduce the need for physical prototypes.

By working together, Simerics and SimScale offer an inclusive workflow where simulation engineers import any CAD model, setup a CFD simulation, mesh and solve in minutes and postprocess in real-time through one easy-to-use web-based interface.

New Fluid Flow Technology for Rotating Machinery

SimScale’s latest CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) release focuses on rotating machinery applications. Enhanced algorithms, from meshing to solver, produce simulations with excellent accuracy and increased solution speed. In initial user testing, solution turnaround was reduced by 10x to 50x, depending on the specific case, with equal or better accuracy.

“We’ve always known that the design of modern rotating machinery would benefit greatly from cloud-native engineering simulation that is accessible anytime and anywhere from a web browser,” said SimScale’s CEO David Heiny, “but we also knew that these applications have unique requirements for simulation accuracy and speed. So, over the past year we have invested heavily in our simulation technology to provide the ‘total package’ for this market: accessible, accurate, efficient, and versatile. By integrating Simerics-MP into the SimScale platform, we fulfilled the demand of designers and engineers working on Rotating Machinery for simulation on the cloud with the benefits of having engineering simulation broadly accessible.” Rotating machinery CFD solutions based on desktop technology have been slow, expensive, and piecemeal, “by delivering a unifying simulation workflow in the cloud, the partnership between Simerics and SimScale relieves the pressure and stress of designing and optimizing rotating machinery applications under hardware and license constraints,” concludes Heiny.

“Our development with SimScale makes the high-end CFD rotating machinery technical advantages from Simerics-MP available on the cloud where more and more simulation users can quickly access CFD simulation to design products that rotate and spin,” said Rich Moore, Executive Vice President Strategy, Simerics. “With our exclusive and strategic partnership with SimScale we are bringing the most affordable and accurate CFD results to the simulation design community and rotating machinery application users.”
