Comprehensive Engineering Simulation Environment for CFD, FEA + FSI, and Optimization



TCAE is unlimited software. TCAE has no limitations on the number of users, jobs, cores, or hardware installations. TCAE has a different business model than other services. Because TCAE is completely unlimited, it allows its users to use their resources to the fullest. TCAE has a fantastic value/cost ratio and it is easy to prove it. Its users can scale their simulations according to their needs, purpose, and resources.

TCAE is very accurate. At CFDSUPPORT, we’re obsessed with accuracy. Accuracy is our highest priority. And besides accuracy, we are focused on automation, repeatability, and application-tailored solutions. We don’t believe in general-purpose codes. We don’t believe that any particular software can accurately simulate everything. Validation benchmarks are available.

TCAE has a modular character. TCAE consists of simulation software modules TCAD, TMESH, TCFD, TFEA, and TOPT.  Software modules that can be combined according to the user’s needs, skills, and resources. On top of that, the user can combine them with many other software pieces available in the market to create a smooth workflow. The total number of combinations is almost infinite. TCAE has a strong integration ability. It has been from the beginning developed in a way to fit any existing workflow. No matter if it is combined with commercial codes, in-house codes, or another open-source code. Because it has strong interfaces and it is very flexible.


In a typical enterprise. The engineers usually have some existing workflow already. And TCAE is capable of fitting into it. No matter what design tool is used. No matter what CAD tool is used. Or no matter what meshing system is used. TCAE is still here. To fit any workflow. To do the simulation. And to deliver the results. For the user’s judgment. TCAE is ready for very complex workflows. Optimization loops. Cloud computing. And many other trends going on out there. Real tutorials based on real projects we did in the past are available. TCAE works perfectly at all stages of the design process. TCAE fits very well with demanding high-end simulations, for example, large transient simulations with many CPUs. And at the same time, TCAE is perfect for multiple quick simulations in the early product design stage.

TCAE includes following standalone modules


Based on Open Source
TCAE successfully merged the benefits of open-source (unlimited users, jobs, cores, and unlimited hardware installations, flexible, …) with typical benefits of commercial codes (GUI, unlimited tech support, well tested, ready for the industry, robust, accurate, automated, documented, …). And it is ready for use in the industry.

Added Value
TCAE is a CAE software with very high added value for its users. We do believe that any successful project is a result of focus, skills, experience, patience, and dedication. We believe in open-source. Especially we believe in a combination of open-source and professional support. So far, we have invested more than 30 Man-Years of focused team development on top of open-source to deliver these professional simulation tools. TCAE is definitely a high-end software and its users are CAE professionals who know well what they want.

Cloud Ready
TCAE is natively compiled for Windows and Linux without operating system dependencies. It’s ready to be run on the cloud. It can be executed in a batch mode, directly, via a script, or via any other third-party application.

Know-how Transfer
TCAE is not just simulation software. It’s a membership in a family of its users and developers where no one is ever left behind. Together with TCAE, its users are receiving valuable know-how of CFD, FEA & optimization, training, best practices, case studies, and technical support.
