Geomiso software fully integrates Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE), merges geometric design with mesh generation into a single procedure, eliminates geometric errors, significantly increases the accuracy of the numerical results of the engineering analysis and drastically reduces the required computational time and cost, thus creates high added value for both engineers and their projects.

The company aspires to revolutionize the global CAD/ CAE markets, as Geomiso software is an international breakthrough in both computational mechanics and computational geometry that fully integrates the design and the analysis of engineering projects (e.g. machines, structures).

This outcome of 8 years of high added value applied research is able to design and analyse complex CAD models, having a wide spectrum of applications (mechanical engineering, structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, fluid mechanics, naval engineering, aeronautics, cardiovascular bioengineering). It is based on the recently developed isogeometric method, which is the powerful generalization of the classical finite element method (dates back to the 1960s), thus satisfying the rising need for technical software of dual CAD/ CAE nature in the international market.

Although both the global CAD/ CAE markets are growing at impressive compound annual growth rate, engineers are not able to benefit from the latest CAD advanced techniques. The main obstacle is the fact that engineers have a limited knowledge of computational geometry and designers know nothing about computational mechanics.

To date, designers create the product design using CAD software and then deliver it to an engineer, who transfers the data of the CAD design to another program, a CAE one, so as to carry out the engineering analysis and study its behaviour. Using finite element software packages, engineers are unable to efficiently utilize the existing exact finite element mesh of the CAD model and have to create from the very beginning a new one, the so-called finite element mesh, which is not precise and only approximates the geometric domain. Consequently, geometric errors are introduced, while the engineering analysis isn’t accurate enough to study complex CAD models.

Geomiso eliminates the time-consuming procedure of mesh generation. This key attribute, which enables Geomiso to be clearly superior to the finite element programs, comes from the fact that it is based on the recently developed isogeometric method, the powerful generalization of the classical finite element method. Additionally, compared with the design programs available in the market, Geomiso offers better capabilities, as it encompasses all the latest and most advanced CAD tools. Therefore, engineering applications end up being better and more optimized.
