PRESS RELEASE

CFDCalc

An on-demand computational fluid dynamics (CFD) application, built on top of Altair’s CFD solver, AcuSolve, has been released. Dubbed CFDCalc, this cloud application serves as both a software-as-a-service (SaaS) application and as a platform-as-a-service (PaaS) application, and utilises the reliability, efficiency and near-instant availability of Amazon Web Services (AWS).

CFDCalc comes with two pre-packaged, special-purpose vertical applications that are developed to solve fluid mixing in the industrial and consumer mixing industry, and thermal cooling in the electronics industry. Altair will offer additional vertical applications while promoting experts and developers globally to use the framework to develop new applications, further enhancing the portfolio of solutions.
