Combined Offering Provides Complete Solution – From Preliminary Design to 3D CFD Detailed Analysis

White River Junction, VT, USA and  Brussels, Belgium May 10, 2016 Leading turbomachinery design and analysis software companies, Concepts NREC and NUMECA International, have announced a strategic partnership to offer their combined capabilities to the turbomachinery industry. Concepts NREC is well known for its Agile Engineering Design System® that includes preliminary design modules for all classes of turbomachinery. NUMECA International is globally recognized for its leadership in turbomachinery specific Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). By combining the best capabilities of both companies, customers will have access to the most advanced suite of turbomachinery software available. This integrated solution will span preliminary design through detailed 3D steady and unsteady CFD analysis.

“We have worked with Concepts NREC for more than 20 years and respect their capabilities in turbomachinery design,” said Dr. Charles Hirsch, CEO of NUMECA International. “We are excited to create a formal partnership where we add Concepts NREC’s preliminary design and turbomachinery geometry generation capability as an integrated offering to our customers.”

Dr. David Japikse, CEO of Concepts NREC stated “We have been using NUMECA International’s CFD tools in our engineering work for decades and have been impressed with the advances they have made in speed, accuracy and functionality over the years.  We are very pleased to be able to combine NUMECA International’s functionality to our Agile Engineering Design System through this new partnership.”
