Automated Flow Predictions

Adaptive Simulations offers a cloud-based service (SaaS), providing customers with fully automated flow simulations.


Our automated cloud-solution increases accuracy, flexibility and cost efficiency when simulating flow. The accessibility and ease of use of the solution enables designers, engineers, researchers, innovators and architects without any prior knowledge of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) or simulations to predict flow and improve their design.

Making simulations easy

Our adaptive algorithms have the capacity to automate the entire process of simulation. This eliminates sub-optimizations due to human error, increases accuracy and lowers the cost of simulations with around 70 %.


But above all, our unique automated  solution makes the complex easy. Really easy. "No-need-for-a-degree"-easy.


Our easy to use cloud-solution enables simulations early in the design process. This capability improves the product design and shortens time-to-market.

Our research

Our innovative adaptive algorithms combined with high performance computing enable Automated Flow Simulations. This solution surpass traditional Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and mark the frontier of development for predictive transient flow simulations.


The ground breaking algorithms in our model are adaptive and parameter free which enables an automated simulation process as well as reliable estimation of error margin.


Adaptive algorithms enable automation

Our innovation is the result of a spin-off from world leading research conducted over the last decade by a team of researchers at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm.


The method is based on quantitative a posteriori error estimation, which means that the user prescribe what you want to compute and then the mesh is automatically optimized to compute that quantity to a prescribed tolerance with minimal computational cost. This is achieved by solving a so called adjoint problem that connects local errors to the error in this quantity of interest.

Towards a parameter-free method for high Reynolds number turbulent flow simulation based on adaptive finite element approximation

Read Article

Published on

This article is a review of our work towards a parameter-free method for simulation of turbulent flow at high Reynolds numbers. In a series of papers we have developed a model for turbulent flow in the form of weak solutions of the Navier–Stokes equations, approximated by an adaptive finite element method, where: (i) viscous dissipation is assumed to be dominated by turbulent.
