About Cadence Computational Fluid Dynamics

NUMECA is now Cadence

Ensuring your competitive advantage

Solving real-world ‘flow’ problems, requires fast and reliable solutions. 

Cadence offers simulation tools that accurately predict real-world product performance, allowing engineers to explore and push their designs to the limit, safely, fast and with precision. 


"Our vision drives us towards novel software for multiphysics simulations, where accuracy and reliability are the main drivers,  incorporating in a single and unique user experience disruptive technologies in fluids coupled to acoustics, mechanics, thermics and general multiphysics.

Our mission is to deliver professional tools and methods to support our customers developing better and more reliable products with the highest productivity, and provide support towards minimizing the risks associated with the simulation-based design process. 

Our challenge is to transform sophisticated methods and algorithms into simple and intelligible operations, producing useful data and design choices faster and more effectively."

Prof Charles Hirsch, President of NUMECA International

Innovation & Quality drive us to success

Today’s industry leaders trust Cadence to give them the edge

NUMECA was founded by Prof. Charles Hirsch in 1993, as a spin-off of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB). Since then, the company has grown and expanded worldwide. 

In February 2021 NUMECA joined Cadence Design Systems Inc to significantly expand their multi-physics simulation portfolio with the addition of proven CFD technology for the aerospace, automotive, industrial and marine industries.

Leading companies from a wide range of industries count on Cadence to ensure their competitve advantage.
