NIKA GmbH MOVES Headquarters To Union Halle In Frankfurt, Germany

NIKA GmbH, a provider of fluid flow and heat transfer simulation software for engineers, announced today that it has relocated its world headquarters to Union Halle in Frankfurt, Germany. The company, which develops and distributes FloWorks, EFD.Lab and EFD.V5 analysis tools, has experienced stellar growth since inception and has therefore outgrown its current facilities. The new offices will be located at Union Halle, Hanauer Landstraße 188, 60314 Frankfurt am Main. The phone and fax numbers will remain the same.

Based on the principles of Engineering Fluid Dynamics (EFD), NIKA's products offer ease-of-use, design and analysis power to the engineering community. FloWorks offers a single-window integration with SolidWorks as well as powerful analysis and result visualization capabilities. EFD.Lab includes a fully integrated solid modeler that also serves as a preprocessor for reading and preparing geometry created in leading desktop design packages such as UG, SolidEdge, SolidWorks and Pro/E as well as a postprocessor for results visualization. Since both products allow the use of CAD geometry directly without modeling a separate domain of the flow space, and offer fully automatic mesh generation as well as solver convergence controls, users can take advantage of fully integrated flow simulation within the design cycle. NIKA's products are mainly used for the development and optimization of various products such as automotive parts, computer housings, switching units, electronic devices, HVAC systems, valves and regulators, medical equipment, in addition to the building and fire protection industries.

NIKA GmbH ( ) was founded in 1999 and develops fluid flow and heat transfer simulation software such as EFD.Lab and EFD.V5. Its programs are based on the principles of Engineering Fluid Dynamics (EFD). EFD is a radically different approach from Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). While based on the same mathematical foundation as CFD programs, EFD programs speak the language of the engineer. NIKA GmbH is a worldwide operating company with headquarters in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Selected resellers in USA, JAPAN, Australia, France, UK, Benelux, Scandinavia, Italy, Spain and many other countries of the world market NIKA products. NIKA's customer list includes more than 700 companies such as Intel, NEC, LG Electronics, Siemens, Thyssen, RWE, Miele, Friedrich Grohe, Continental, Delphi, TRW, Fuji Film, Eastman Kodak, Northrop Grumman, OCE, Nasa, Bell Helicopter and Dräger.
