AVL FIRE™ M – Taking 3D CFD to the Next Level

AVL’s simulation platform AVL FIRE™ M adds new dimensions to computational flow simulation. 


AVL’s simulation platform AVL FIRE™ M adds new dimensions to computational flow simulation. It opens up an entirely new range of possibilities in pre-processing, main-program and post-processing and features the AVL simulation desktop as a user environment. As a result, simulation feedback is now delivered to users more efficiently than ever before, leading to significantly shortened product development times.

AVL FIRE™ has been a well-established simulation solution in the field of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) for many years. In order to deliver application-specific answers and to meet the numerous challenges engineers face today, AVL has now taken CFD to the next level by launching AVL FIRE™ M. The new software provides faster model generation, shorter simulation times, significantly improved product functionality, higher result quality and more efficient data visualization and analysis capabilities.

Versatile, user-friendly CFD solution with an optimum price/performance ratio


AVL FIRE™ M offers many advantages. They include exceptionally user-friendly operation thanks to the new software architecture, shorter throughput times and more precise results. The software is specifically designed to generate and calculate multi-domain models. By accessing the AVL property database, material properties can be assigned to the individual domains quickly and conveniently. Data pooling and model- parameterization support the efficient execution of a large number of variants. Calculation results are displayed multi-dimensionally, meeting the specific needs of engineers. Cause and effect of fluid phenomena are evaluated fast and precisely, no matter how complex the geometries.

With an optimal price/performance ratio AVL FIRE™ M is an ideal 3D CFD solution to investigate the growing number of design parameters in standard applications. Its ease of use and high level of automation allow also non- simulation experts easy access to CFD. To experience the benefits of the new CFD software today, please download AVL FIRE™ M at
