UpFront Engineering Simulation Ltd was formed in Oct 2007, by Mike Clapp as a consultancy
services business and then in October 2010 a merger with 8020 Engineering (founded
by CAE veterans Sean Horgan and Ake Burman) was completed. Now UpFront Engineering
Simulation is a wholly owned subsidiary of 8020 Engineering, focusing exclusively
on the use of ‘UpFront’ simulation technology.
Simerics-MP is a new ‘UpFront CFD’ tool ideal for applications found with the flow
control industry. We can package this with SpaceClaim (simerics-spaceclaim) or as
a stand-alone add-on to an existing design environment.
State-of-the-art ‘3D Direct modelling’ solutions, based on the application of SpaceClaim,
for Conceptual Design, Bid Modelling and CAE model preparation are available.
We added CFturbo to our solution offerings as a turbo-machinery design tool that
can also integrated with Simerics-MP.
New award winning design driven ‘in-CAD’ FEA software from NEi Nastran has further
expanded our portfolio of product simulation solutions.
Our history with the application of ‘UpFront CFD’ and CFdesign, also results in a
range of dedicated services for the mechanical design community such as:
Simulation Project Work
CFD/FEA Implementation Services
CFD/FEA Process Benchmarking
CFD/FEA Training Solutions
With UpFront Engineering Simulation being part of the 8020 Engineering group, this
also provides clients access to a broader range of advanced simulation solutions
and services including Advanced Flow & Thermal, Fatigue, Dynamics, Impact/Crash and
