Company Profile

Convergent Science is an innovative, rapidly expanding computational fluid dynamics (CFD) company. Our flagship product, CONVERGE, is a cutting-edge CFD software with truly autonomous meshing capabilities that eliminate the grid generation bottleneck from the simulation process. Convergent Science is headquartered in Madison, Wisconsin, and has additional branches in New Braunfels, Texas; Houston, Texas; Detroit, Michigan; Linz, Austria; and Pune, India and distributors worldwide.


Our mission is to enable our customers to perform revolutionary CFD simulations by creating accurate, versatile, user-friendly software and providing unparalleled support. 


In 1997, Convergent Science’s co-founders were University of Wisconsin-Madison graduate students with an idea, an idea that has grown into a complex multi-physics platform with a global network of users in industry, academia, and government. 

From the company’s humble beginnings in an office the size of a broom closet on D’Onofrio Drive to its current World Headquarters on Enterprise Lane in Madison, Wisconsin, the story of Convergent Science is one of seized opportunities, perseverance, and friendship. While Convergent Science began as a CFD consulting company, the founders soon realized they spent most of their consulting time making meshes for clients. They had an idea that would liberate not only themselves, but all CFD engineers, from this tedious, time-consuming task: CFD software that automatically generates the mesh for you. Thus they pivoted to building their own code.

In 2008, the first CONVERGE licenses were sold, and the company officially transitioned to a CFD software company. Due to its autonomous meshing and Adaptive Mesh Refinement, CONVERGE was widely embraced by the automotive industry. Partnerships with IDAJ and Ignite3D, which would become Convergent Science GmbH, expanded the company’s user base in Asia and Europe. In 2017, Convergent Science India, LLP, was established in Pune. The company now has sales and support teams in three major geographical locations—the U.S., Central Europe, and India—to support and grow its global customer base. CONVERGE is also supported and distributed by IDAJ in China, Japan, and South Korea.

Convergent Science has steadily worked to expand the capabilities of the original software package and extend the benefits to new users. CONVERGE is now used to model emobility, oil and gas, maritime, and biomedical applications, among many others.


We partner with many leading organizations and companies to provide the best product to our users. In collaboration with research institutions—Argonne National Laboratory, IFP Energies nouvelles, and Sandia National Laboratories, among others—we validate CONVERGE’s existing models, implement new models, and prove the worth of these models by publishing results in scientific journals.

Through our partnerships in industry—Gamma Technologies, Spatial, and JMAG, among others—we provide the capability to interface with other software packages and perform sophisticated co-simulations. In partnership with Oracle, we have added a cloud computing product, CONVERGE Horizon, that allows our users to access high-performance computing resources on demand.


1. Customers as Partners

We view our relationship with our customers as a partnership. We work closely with our customers to find solutions to difficult problems and identify avenues for future development. Our customers are our most important source of feedback, and many of our code improvements have been customer led.

2. Constant Collaboration

Convergent Science values teamwork. Our code is the product of excellent collaboration between our Support team, Development team, our customers, and collaborators around the world.

3. Continuous Learning

We believe in learning new things every day and expanding our knowledge base regularly. From conversations in the hallway to attending technical conferences to our Friday lunch-and-learns, ours is a company culture of discovery and enrichment.

4. Leadership in CFD

We choose to lead by example. Our engineers are constantly pushing the bounds of CFD by implementing advanced models in CONVERGE and applying our software to complex, new problems. We participate in the CFD discourse through our global CONVERGE events and regular contributions to academia via journal publications and presentations at international conferences. Our goal is to be a leader in advancing the state-of-the-art in CFD, not just for our company, but for the CFD community at large.

5. Reliability

We believe a good CFD code is a well-validated CFD code. Given the correct inputs and models, you need to feel confident that your solution will be accurate and repeatable. When we implement changes, we take the time to test new models and features for different applications before we release them to our users. If we tell you CONVERGE can model your problem, we make sure we can back that claim up.
