Our simulations deliver real added value

We enable you to develop your products quickly and digitally — fewer experiments, fewer expensive prototypes. Experimentally inaccessible parameters can be precisely captured. In addition, physical effects can be considered in isolation.

Conjugate heat transfer (CHT)

Detailed prediction of the thermal behavior of a refrigerated vehicle under turbulent flow conditions within the cooled cargo compartment. This involves spatial resolution of the heat flow through the insulation walls.

Innovative Algorithms


Previous simulation attempts took too long or were too inaccurate. What is cloudfluid doing differently?

Traditional discretization methods require a high and very specific expertise and large computational capacities. Instead, we rely on the innovative Lattice Boltzmann Method (LBM). In addition to very high computational speed, this method offers excellent precision of results with easily controllable choice of model parameters.

The meshing of the computational domain can be fully automated and is extremely fast. Conventional solutions have required an experienced user and a time-consuming manual procedure for this. This is a thing of the past with cloudfluid.

Automated workflows

We don't have time to familiarize ourselves with yet another digital tool or to integrate it manually into our processes. Is it possible to automate this?

Based on your requirements we develop a customized modeling of your product with robust and fully automated workflows. You only need to enter your process and material parameters; numerical influencing variables and model parameters are determined automatically. The simulation results are automatically prepared in tables, interactive graphics and animations, so that you always have the relevant data in view.

If even deeper insight is desired? We would be happy to create a walk-through virtual reality of the simulation results for you.

Highly efficient hardware

Hardware for solving CFD simulations is extensive and expensive. We do not plan to purchase it on a large scale. Do we need it to use the cloudfluid solution?

No, our solution is specifically optimized for high performance graphics cards (GPU) in the cloud. This makes cloudfluid one of the fastest flow solvers in the world. Get results for even complex flow problems overnight with it!

Whether it's a single simulation or a study with hundreds of variants, start as many simulations as you like in parallel — scalability in the cloud makes it possible. By using the cloud, you neither need to purchase nor maintain your own cluster systems. This reduces your hardware costs to a minimum.

Data protection by design


Our technical drawings contain highly sensitive designs and must never be taken off-site. How does cloudfluid secure our data?

The security of your sensitive data is of particular concern to us, and we have implemented it deep into our structures.

That's why, with our solution, your engineering drawings and CAD files are never uploaded to the cloud. Our client software grids the geometry locally at your site. The computational grid created is sent to the cloud along with the configuration files for the simulation environment. The transfer and storage of this data always follows state-of-the-art cryptographic security concepts.

Still unsure how our technology can help you? We will be happy to analyze this with you during a free initial consultation. Simply make an appointment with us.
