Build and Deliver Products at the Edge of Innovation with Advanced CFD and High-Fidelity Multi-Physics Simulations
Whether pre-certifying the aero-thermal performance of new land or space vehicles, designing multiphase cooling systems for equipment – ranging from nuclear reactors to electric vehicle batteries – or engineer materials at the atomic level, squeezing a world of novel technologies into a single pixel, being at the peak of innovation is key.
While working with ever-shortening development cycles, the need to deliver products and processes of the highest quality with a concrete understanding of the product’s behavior – as designed and throughout its lifecycle – is a challenge faced by every design engineer, manufacturer, and service provider in the world.
ACE+ Suite is an advanced CFD and high-fidelity Multiphysics simulation software package supporting the automotive, semiconductor, energy, microfluidics, and biotech industries, amongst others. With ACE+ Suite, engineers can virtually test the performance and behavior of their designs before they are manufactured, for the most extreme innovation requirements.
This tool offers the broadest range of physics disciplines including flow, heat transfer, stress/deformation, chemical kinetics, electrochemistry, biochemistry, electrostatics, electromagnetics, hypersonics, plasma and more – in any combination from a single environment.
ACE+ Suite also includes Design Space Exploration, Optimization and Reduced Order Model modules allowing you to fully understand and fine-tune designs.
