CFD Simulation: Converging Our Expertise for Structural and Fluid Dynamic Simulation

At Wölfel, we are experts in structural dynamics and have extensive experience, especially with the Finite-Element-Method (FEM) and Multibody Simulation. However, wherever something flows, be it air, liquids or heat, it also requires a sophisticated fluid dynamic analysis and calculation, for example by means of a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation.

In order to offer our customers comprehensive simulation expertise from a single source, we have joined forces with engineering colleagues of our partner HTCO.

The engineers at HTCO are specialists for "flowing perfection" and have been driving the topic of flow simulation for more than 30 years. This makes them pioneers in the German-speaking region. Combined with Wölfel's simulation experience in structural dynamics, this results in resilient design solutions for the customer – without the need for constant tests with real prototypes.

As a well-coordinated team, HTCO and Wölfel deliver sophisticated simulation results (FEM + CFD) and derive hand-in-hand resilient design solutions – saving you a lot of time in service provider handling.

Combined simulations ensure sophisticated designs

When you combine the data and simulations from both approaches, you get highly realistic simulation results – and ultimately know what stresses plant components, machines and other structures really have to withstand when flows act on them.


This means that the design can be

  • correctly designed from the beginning,
  • allowing you to save on subsequent design optimizations, and
  • a long service life can be ensured.

Thanks to the cooperation between Wölfel and HTCO, everyone can concentrate on what they do best: You on your technical innovation, HTCO on fluid dynamics, and Wölfel on structural mechanics and dynamics: In less time your idea reaches a mature state, allowing you to deliver more quickly to the customer – thanks to coordinated simulation service providers.

We are looking forward to hearing from you!



I am happy to support you with numerical simulations and advise you on the development, optimization and automation of your simulation processes.
