Altair acquires Flow Simulator from GE Aviation

Altair announced that it has acquired Flow Simulator from GE Aviation. Flow Simulator is an integrated flow, heat transfer, and combustion design software, which enables mixed fidelity simulations to optimize machine and systems design. 
As part of the acquisition, Altair and GE Aviation have signed a memo of understanding (MOU) to facilitate a higher level of collaboration and establish a long-term strategic partnership. The relationship will include Altair’s continuous development of Flow Simulator; granting GE Aviation access to Altair’s complete software suite to explore enhanced functionality aligned to real-world use cases and workflows; and ongoing executive engagement between both parties to establish deeper strategic alignment and pursue new ventures.
GE Aviation developed Flow Simulator to serve as a fast flow network simulator for aircraft engines. Prior to acquiring the technology, Altair was a commercial distributor of Flow Simulator, which was available through the Altair Partner Alliance (APA).
Key features of Flow Simulator include (i) Fully-coupled flow/thermal network modeling; (ii) Control system module; (iii) Optimization module; (iv) User-defined elements; and (v) Intuitive interface.
