Medical Devices Stent CFD wall shear DIT

implanted_stentMedical devices: Since 1997, we have built up our expertise though involvement in 3 successful European Projects (BLOODSIM, GEMSS, @neurIST), collaborations with research organisations and by providing expert consultancy to large medical device companies (such as Medtronic, Boston Scientific and Abbott Vascular). We also partner with smaller companies, in Ireland and abroad, providing a simulation service which compliments their design efforts resulting in robust, optimum designs within project timelines and costs.  Read more …


renewableDispRenewable Energy: Design solutions for renewable energy technologies (be they wind, tidal or wave) require a broad width of simulation expertise – computational fluid dynamics, structural mechanics and fluid structure interaction.

OpenHydro Technology is an excellent example of a new industry combining a number of simulations disciplines to reach an optimum engineering design.

Systems and Multiphysics: Increasingly, to push the design envelope, it’s necessary to include more physics into engineering simulations. Such examples are Computational Structural Mechanics being fed pressure and thermal results from CFD; or Computational Electromagnetics working in tandem with CFD to take account of cooling effects in electrical machines.

Civil and Structural Engineering: CADFEM provides structural engineering analysis services to a large, national and international, client base as well as collaborating with research institutions. These services include static, dynamic, linear/nonlinear and seismic analyses for steel, concrete and masonry structures checked to appropriate codes of practice, and the development of simulation solutions for new technologies.

CADFEM Cloud Computing

Leverage your ANSYS Licence …

Leverage your ANSYS Licence and our experience to try out the cloud for yourself

We have several years experience setting up cloud based infrastructures around the ANSYS suite of products including networking issues and licensing setups. Now we want to share the benefits of this experience by sharing purpose-built ANSYS cloud computers with you so you don’t have to.

Only pay for the computing power you use

Using Amazon Web Services, CADFEM can unleash the power of cloud computing to give you extra computing power on demand !

Run a 40-core machine like the one below for as little as $4.92 / hour (not including ANSYS licensing or data storage costs) …

  • m4.10xlarge – High Memory Instance Type
  • 40 Virtual CPUs (20 real, 20 HT)
  • 160 GB RAM
  • High Frequency Intel Xeon E5-2670 v2 (Ivy Bridge) Processors

… and when you’re finished, switch it off – just like a real world computer !

There are a whole range of instance types available. More information here.
