Founded in 2012, SimScale GmbH develops a novel web-based platform that simplifies the access to numerical simulation drastically. The five founders, mechanical engineers, computer scientists and mathematicians, are driven by the idea to create a platform that renews the way Computer Aided Engineering is done in order to make it available to a broader range of users. SimScale encapsulates a broad range of simulation tools from Fluid Mechanics, Structural Mechanics and Thermodynamics in one user interface which can be tested free of charge on www.simscale.com.
