A cloud-native simulation platform for the entire engineering organization


One platform, broad Physics

Real-time collaboration

Any scale



No VPN, No remote desktop. True SaaS with instant access anywhere & anytime from a browser without any special hardware.

No disconnected tools used in silos. A single platform with broad physics capabilities for both rough early- and detailed late-stage simulations.

Google-Docs-style collaboration built-in, enabling unparalleled in-app support as well as sharing simulations with colleagues.

Practically no limits to simulation size, number of parallel simulations and storage. From one-off runs to programmatic design space exploration.

Simulation data is persisted in a way to directly be used for AI training (i.e., hardware selection process is done via AI models. More in progress.)

Capex-free, low ‘total cost of ownership’. Economically viable from a single user to 100s of seats.

Architecture & Construction



Valves & Flow Control



Optimize building performance and meet the demands of modern architecture. Get design insights for urban microclimate, wind load effects, indoor environment and contamination control all in one platform.

Learn More

Design more robust and reliable electronics equipment faster. Identify temperature or mechanical failure / performance issues early and accurately and explore more design versions faster.

Learn More

Increase performance and reduce R&D timelines for turbomachinery products by running fast, accurate and robust FEA & CFD simulations in the cloud. Full performance curves of pumps, fans, compressors or turbines can be generated in under an hour, allowing you to iterate faster.

Learn More

Test, validate, and optimize your valve designs. The SimScale platforms enables you to test several design versions simultaneously allowing you to develop valves better, faster, and cheaper.

Learn More

Accelerate vehicle development programs by using simulation earlier, broader, and more intensely in the cloud. Various simulation types, from external aerodynamics to interior structural simulations help to increase fuel efficiency, increase passenger comfort and safety, and drive electrification.

Customer Testimonials

  • surf loch logo

    “SimScale CFD has been an incredibly powerful tool for our company allowing us to quickly evaluate multiple design options and quickly zero in final designs. The software is fast and accurate and also very intuitive and easy to learn. The support has been incredible. We are doing so much more in-house that would have cost us tens of thousands to outsource and the results are near real-time.”

    Stephen Hovey

    Surf Loch Senior Engineer

  • cryo_science_150x50

    “Thanks to the platform’s ease of use, the professional support of SimScale engineers and the perfect communication with them, we were able to efficiently perform simulations and sort out our design problems. It’s hard to imagine how much physical prototyping time and measures we saved.”

    Piotr Pietryga

    CEO at CRYO Science

  • Aqseptence Group logo

    “The nice thing about SimScale is that you can essentially run an unlimited number of simulations simultaneously with no reduction in computational resources, because SimScale opens up each simulation on independent nodes. This is a huge advantage for us”

    Daryn Bertelson

    CAE Engineer at Johnson Screens – Aqseptence Group

  • ingenieurbüro hausladen logo 150x50

    “SimScale moves complex simulations to the next level. We are thrilled about the user-friendly interface, great customer support, and computing power, which enables us to handle our projects more efficiently.”

    Christoph Hanusch

    Civil Engineer at Ingenieurbüro Hausladen GmbH

  • custom_machines_150x50

    “I loved the fact that I could do what I need to do in a browser. I started working without installing any software. Using any computer I could upload the model and start the analysis. That was the big “wow” moment.”
