AltaSim Technologies provides specialized services and products to help our customers develop innovative and cost effective improvements to their products, technologies and processes. We support customers in the United States and internationally by offering:


Consulting Services:

Our experienced team of scientists and engineers combines multiphysics simulations with industrial experience to analyze the effectiveness of innovative technology to provide new products and processes, and to develop solutions to existing real world problems.  Our proprietary approaches have demonstrated savings for new technology and product development of up to 90% of the time and simultaneously 50% of the cost. Our expertise includes heat transfer, structural mechanics, fluid dynamics, acoustics, materials, electromagnetics, plasma technology, thermal management of electronic components and circuits, and fluid structure interactions (Learn more).



To further the exploitation of advanced multiphysics modeling we share our expertise through focused, personal training courses at both the introductory and advanced level. Participants learn how to use COMSOL Multiphysics to solve real world problems from scientists and engineers that use COMSOL Multiphysics on a daily basis to solve problems and develop innovative solutions. Training is offered through personalized classroom instruction and web based instructor led classes that draw upon our decades of experience in applying COMSOL Multiphysics (Register for Training).


Technology Apps

To increase the ease and effectiveness of applying the benefits of advanced multiphysics modeling, AltaSim develops focused Technology Apps that allow practicing engineers with limited knowledge of computational analysis to use predefined advanced multiphysics computational modeling routines. These Technology Apps provide simplified interfaces that control the input and problem set up, these are seamlessly integrated with automated mesh generation, solver set up and execution of the solution and display of the results of  the multiphysics analysis (Learn more).


Our work supports customers developing products, processes and technology for application in the Medical and Life Sciences, Aerospace, Petrochemical, Energy, Materials, Consumer Products, Automotive, Defense, Ship Construction and Electronics and Communication industries.

Modeling and Simulation: Motive

Modeling and Simulation: Motive

Modeling and Simulation: Motive “It’s not just what you do it’s also why you do it” – Part 1 As scientists and engineers involved with modeling and simulation it is natural for us to focus on the intricacies of the tools that we use and to instinctively value the use of computational analysis. Consequently we often hear that modeling and simulation can enable a greater understanding, provide insight, identify solutions and isolate critical factors that affect performance. Read More

Modeling and Simulation: Opportunity

Modeling and Simulation: Opportunity “It’s not just what you do it’s also why you do it” – Part 2 With all these advantages of modeling and simulation that were documented in Part 1 of this blog where is computational analysis and virtual prototyping being used and what is the opportunity for future use? A 2015 study (1) (Figure 1), suggested that in leading companies computational analysis has made significant inroads into general use but there are many areas where it is not being applied.
