Projects and Partners



We use our tool in many areas of vehicle development and simulate, for example, water crossing of a car, filling of a fuel tank or return valves.


Maritime Industry

Virtual prototyping has become indispensable for maritime applications. With MESHFREE, we identify optimization potential in the early stages of design.


Hydro Power

In this field of application, we are currently engaged in impulse type turbines, so-called Pelton turbines. MESHFREE is very suitable for modeling fluid flow phenomena around turbines for a variety of reasons.


Manufacturing Engineering

With our software tool, we can simulate the process of machining, in which a piece of raw material is cut into a desired final shape and size by a controlled material-removal process.


Chemical Engineering

Our software tool can be used for stirring and mixing processes.


Natural Hazards

We use our expertise and simulation experience to develop methods, which assist in emergencies and catastrophes like the simulation of floating bridge elements or avalanches.


Food Industry

MESHFREE is particularly suitable for the food industry, as kneading or stirring processes as well as the baking process or foam formation can be simulated particularly well.


General Projects

We can simulate the flow through flexible pipes, like blood flowing through veins.
