AMI Aero offers a variety of computational tools to address fluid dynamic and design problems. Our software is in use at small and large companies throughout the world and has applications in a wide range of industries. In addition to its aerospace applications, AMI Aero software has been used in the design of helicopters, ships, submarines, high-speed trains and vehicles including Formula One cars. We also offer software for pre and post processing of your geometry and CFD solutions.
Why Choose AMI Aero?
AMI Aero offers software solutions for rapid development of aerodynamic solutions where the time and expense associated with Navier-Stokes is otherwise too costly. In many cases, lower-order methods such as VLAERO+, VSAERO, USAERO, and MGAERO may be more appropriate for your situation. Applications for lower-order methods include rapid optimization, shape design, inlet/nozzle design, airfoil and wing design, powerplant integration, hull design, wing-body fairing design, ground effect assessment, loads, and much more!
Do you have a unique software requirement? Custom software and modifications to existing software can be developed to meet your specific requirements. Likewise, if you lack the computer power or resources to run high fidelity CFD at your organization or if you simply need peak-load support, AMI Aero can offer high-performance, cloud-based computing as part of the comprehensive analysis services.
