Led by Rothbauer, the team brings a wealth of CFD knowledge to Convergent Science, particularly in the area of combustion simulations. Says Rothbauer, “As a distributor, Ignite3d was able to introduce CONVERGE to the European market. Now with the full resources of CSI behind us, Convergent Science GmbH will be able to take the European CONVERGE business to the next level. We are excited to be part of the CSI family.”

About CONVERGE CFD Software

The CONVERGE CFD software automatically generates a body fitted grid at runtime, thus completely eliminating all user meshing time even for applications with moving boundaries. CONVERGE CFD is widely used for in-cylinder engine flow, spray and combustion modeling. Besides IC engines, the accuracy and productivity benefits of CONVERGE can be applied to other applications where meshing automation is desired and advanced physical models for turbulence, spray and combustion are required.
