ICON Testing

A globally trusted, expert engineering CFD testing partner

For over 30 years, ICON has been a testing, validation and calibration partner to industry, trusted with top-secret data and designs.

For these reasons, much of our work in this area has been “below the radar”, but many class-leading designs that you see in the market today involved ICON engineers, iconCFD® software and ICON® testing, validation and calibration services.

The big difference is that we are engineers first, not just expert coders with exceptional software.
The ability to experience and understand the application from an engineering perspective, and its impact on a whole product for example, gives our customers a huge advantage in their applications of CFD. Our engineers can physically be there, working on your site, alongside your project teams. Not every CFD software provider is willing or able to do this.

ICON offers you:

  • Testing, validation and calibration service, proven by the world’s largest OEMs. This includes successful CFD process WLTP certification for iconCFD customers in automotive industry for example.
  • Extensive validation database from simple academic to industrial cases with complex physics and geometry.
  • Highly matured methodology for CFD validation and calibration taking into account many aspects like absolute/relative accuracy, turnaround time and robustness.
  • Automatic software testing loop: software for automatic CFD testing and evaluation on many testing cases for nightly, weekly and monthly check of your code or best-practice developments
  • Non-destructive pressure measuring system based on digital pressure sensors (MEMS) available for automotive. Hundreds of sensors can be quickly located on tested vehicle to the place of interest. Mass-flow measuring capability using devices based on hot-wire velocimetry

In addition to testing, validation and calibration services, we also provide CFD software and CFD training to help you resolve problems and increase independent capability.

ICON can help you deliver measurable improvements. Our mission is also to make CFD less complex and less expensive for you to use. With over 30 years’ experience and expertise, you can trust ICON to deliver.
