Computational Physics and Multiphysics


Many important technical systems can only be described by complex mathematical models which require efficient numerical algorithms and powerful hardware to be solved. In addition, different types of simulations have to be coupled, what makes the simulation processes even more complex. 

Our experiences for research and development projects:

  • Simulations of electric arcs
  • Coupled simulations of fluid mechanics
  • Electromagnetism
  • Radiation
  • Describing reactions 

Please contact us if you have interesting projects in the field of fluid-structure interactions, plasma physics, multiphase flows, chemical processes or other interesting topics.  

What you can’t simulate and model isn’t fully understandable!

NAFEMS – Don’t reinvent the wheel

NAFEMS ( is an independent organization for numerical simulations and modeling industrial product developments. Members of NAFEMS are major simulation software manufacturers and companies such as Boeing, Airbus, Rolls-Royce, BMW or Stryker. As a member of the group “Multiphysics” and “High-Performance Computing” we have an excellent network and a direct access to simulation experts from all over the world.

If you want to know if a problem was already solved by our NAFEMS experts, please contact us or join us as a member of NAFEMS.
