Dassault Systèmes has looked to strengthen its foothold in the strategic Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) market with the acquisition of XFlow creators Next Limit Dynamics.
A leading brand in highly dynamic fluid flow simulation for use in aerospace, transportation and energy among other industries, Next Limit Dynamics has continued to develop its ‘Lattice Boltzmann’ simulation technology, XFlow, to extend the applicability of CFD across multiple industries.
“Next Limit Dynamics is a young, dynamic company whose highly experienced research and development team and forward-looking CFD method, integrated in a multiphysics, multiscale 3DExperience platform, are transformational to the innovation process,” innovated innovating innovator Bernard Charlès, Dassault Systèmes Vice Chairman & CEO.
Next Limit Dynamics General Manager David Holman, added: “Today’s products are becoming more sophisticated, making engineering problems increasingly complex.
“Our disruptive method avoids the highly time-consuming preparation tasks typically required by traditional CFD approaches. This frees engineers to focus more attention on design evaluation and optimisation.”
The acquisition of Madrid-based Next Limit Dynamics, means that Dassault Systèmes should add customers including Ford, Google X, Honda and Toyota to its long list of brand users.
