ElectroFlo’s applications range from consumer electronics to automotive, like the Bussed Electrical Center (BEC) shown here

Michigan-based TES International is the latest simulation software company to be acquired by Altair, with its high power-density application electronics cooling package, ElectroFlo, CFD software the pick of its tools.

TES was founded in 1994 to service the electronics cooling market, and produces cross-industry software solutions for thermal design and packaging, custom programming, general heat transfer, stress and vibration analysis, and computational fluid dynamics (CFD).

“ElectroFlo is a great extension to our thermal simulation portfolio,” said Altair CTO Dr. Uwe Schramm. “There is a lot of synergy with AcuSolve 3D CFD which has been widely used for thermal management in a multitude of use cases.

“Having [former TES founder, chairman and CTO] Dr. Zandi on board will accelerate our work in a number of areas, including electronics applications supported with electromagnetics simulation using Flux and FEKO.”
