CFD Simulation Cloud

Your Choice of Public or Private Cloud environment for CFD Simulation

State-of-the-art digital engineering simulation options from the pioneers of unlimited CFD use in industry. With over 30 years’ experience and expertise, you can also trust ICON to deliver.

iconPlatform is a digital engineering CFD simulation cloud platform that provides a simulation management solution for industry. iconPlatform enables cost-effective exploration of ideas and possibilities from the early design phase.

Through cloud, both private and public, ICON can provide cost effective solutions to large and small teams. Adoption of a topical “app” approach allows exploitation of the big data lake with Artificial Intelligence / Machine Learning.

In particular, there’s no requirement to be locked in to an expensive, long-term contract. Both the iconPlatform Private or Public Cloud Subscription models offer:


  • Evaluation
  • Cloud / SaaS
  • Customisable Web browser Interface
  • On-site courtesy visits
  • Accessible cores per simulation – UNLIMITED
  • Possible users per supported location – UNLIMITED
  • Maximum mesh size – UNLIMITED
  • Steady and Unsteady Simulations


  • Maintenance Updates
  • Customisation support
  • ICON application best practice
  • Remote Telephone Support
  • Hardware Support
  • Public validation tutorials
  • Installation support
  • Feature requests

iconPlatform offers multi-stakeholder benefits:


  • Access pre-defined user-friendly application-specific interfaces
  • Parametrize and optimize their designs
  • Explore DoE campaigns
  • High fidelity physics
  • Compare results
  • Easily share and communicate within teams
  • Produce better products, quicker and easier

Methods Developers:

  • Deploy new best practices easily to distributed teams
  • Structured yet flexible environment to plug-in any simulation workflow

IT Administrators:

  • A safe and secure environment
  • Data sovereignty (private platform) not owned by oligopoly
  • Private data exchanges and storage (private cloud)
  • Practical to deploy and upgrade
  • Allows authentication and monitoring
  • Separates essential data (long-term) from non-essential data


  • Agnostic platform to minimise digital engineering oligopoly
  • Significant cost reductions – both operational and compared to other conglomerate providers
  • Doesn’t lock you in to a long term, inflexible, expensive contract
  • Futureproof flexibilit

Measurable Improvements, Not Just Fine Words
In an age where achieving marginal gains is an obsession, the scale of performance improvements and the cost savings potentially achievable with iconPlatform are significant. For example, this is what Koenigsegg Automotive told us about results achieved with our ICON Digital Wind Tunnel App available in iconPlatform:

  • 250% increase in downforce with only a 15% increase in drag
  • 60% saving in prototyping costs
  • 50% saving in wind tunnel/physical testing costs
  • 30% saving in design costs
  • 30% reduction in projected time to market
  • 5% saving in operational costs
  • 1.5% reduction in overall development costs

In summary, considering the ICON options are better, faster, cheaper and easier, you have to ask why on earth would you want to pay more for something not as effective? Unless of course, you haven’t been given the choice.

In addition to software, we also provide CFD consulting, CFD development, CFD training and CFD support services to help you resolve problems and increase independent capability.
