Our services


Finite Element Simulations and Computational Fluid Dynamics are common tools for us to work on your engineering questions. We have more then 20 years of experience in simulation. Our capabilities among other are: linear and non-linear FEM, thermal, coupled thermal mechanical, CFD (including dynamic meshing), ship resistance simulations.

Design Optimization

We believe in simulation driven design. For us this means that we use all available tools to create and optimize your design/product. Topology optimization and sensetivity analysis are tools that we use excessively.


We can assist you in the complete design proces starting from concept generation. We are a small team with desing, structural and mechatronic experience. We can assist you in concept generation and design verification. In all proces we make extensive use of simulation technology.
