Mentor Graphics – Mechanical Analysis Division

The Mentor Graphics Mechanical Analysis Division is the synthesis of several long-standing companies in the  computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and electronics thermal fields.

It grew out of the acquisition of UK based Flomerics Ltd in 2008, the market leader in electronics thermal analysis. Flomerics in turn had acquired NIKA GmbH (a leading-edge German-Russian CAD-embedded CFD company) in 2006 and MicReD (a Hungarian hardware electronics thermal characterization company) in 2005. The subsequent addition of Flowmaster Ltd in 2012, the market leader in general purpose 1D CFD, rounds off the history of the division.
