ANSYS and Reaction Design to merge to provide enhanced combustion simulation and modeling solutions

5 December 2013

ANSYS, a global provider of engineering simulation software, has entered into a definitive merger agreement with Reaction Design, a leading developer of chemistry simulation software. The transaction is expected to close in January 2014. Management will provide further details regarding the transaction and its impact on the 2014 financial outlook subsequent to the closing.

Headquartered in San Diego, Reaction Design serves more than 400 customers around the world. Its flagship product, CHEMKIN-PRO, models and simulates gas-phase and surface chemistry.

The combination of ANSYS’ proven computational fluid dynamics (CFD) solutions with Reaction Design’s industry-leading chemistry solvers will provide the best-in-class combustion simulation tools available on the market, the two say.

Understanding and predicting the effects of chemistry in a combustion system is critical to developing competitive products in transportation, energy and materials processing applications. Relying on experimental testing alone for accurate performance validation is inadequate, given today’s complex designs and shortened design cycles. Effective simulation of the underlying detailed chemistry is critical to advancements in engine and fuel technology.

Reaction Design’s solutions enable transportation manufacturers and energy companies to rapidly achieve their clean technology goals by automating the analysis of chemical processes via computer simulation and modeling solutions. The acquisition of Reaction Design complements ANSYS’ offering for the simulation of internal combustion engines, leading to improved fuel efficiency.
