CoMeT Continuum Mechanics Technologies GmbH was founded in August 2013 with the aim of providing consulting services to industry in the field of continuum mechanics, in particular in fluid dynamics.
CoMeT GmbH is not just yet another engineering services company that enables industry to outsource some of its computational engineering work. We can get involved in projects at any level, from initial brainstorming, over design and optimization to solving problems with prototypes or existing products. Simulation can help to better understand the physics of the problem and lead to ideas for successful solutions. Support from an experienced expert may be crucial for the success of your project...
The founder of CoMeT GmbH, Prof. Dr. Milovan Peric, has a long track record of successful work in both academic and industrial environments. He is still working part-time as a consultant to Siemens Industry Software GmbH, the maker of Simcenter STAR-CCM+ software, where he worked for 12 years as Director of Product Development, Director of Technology and Vice President of Technology, prior to founding CoMeT GmbH. Before joining CD-adapco in 2002 (now part of Siemens), he was professor of fluid dynamics at the Institute of Shipbuilding and Technical University of Hamburg-Harburg.
With over 30 years of experience in the field, we can help you in many ways - from a simple advice to performing complex simulations and analysis. If we do not have all the expertise that is needed, we certainly know someone who has the missing bits!
Do not hesitate to contact us if you need help; even though we do not work for free, with our help you'll in the end save both time and money!

Continuum mechanics is a vast field, but experience in one area usually helps in other areas, too. Our expertise from the past 30 years covers the following applications:
Marine and Offshore Technology:
Prediction of ship resistance (flow with free surface, trim and sinkage)
Prediction of propulsor performance (propeller, water jet; flow and cavitation)
Prediction of ship self propulsion (flow with free surface, motion of ship, propeller and rudder)
Prediction of sloshing in tanks (liquid-gas interface, forces of walls and internal structures)
Prediction of slamming loads and green water effects
Prediction of wave impact loads on ships, shore and offshore structures, etc.
External air flow (drag and lift, moments; wind effects)
Internal air flow (HVAC, engine and break cooling, intake and exhaust flow etc.)
Coolant liquid flow (vibration and cavitation effects, heat transfer, boiling etc.)
Fuel flow (tank filling, fuel injection, vibration and cavitation effects etc.)
Water management (rain and flooding, soiling)
Flow around buildings, bridges and other structures;
Flow inside buildings (including heat and mass transfer, effects of insulation and shielding, fire and smoke etc.)
Power, Process and Environmental Engineering:
Minimization of pressure loses
Maximization of efficiency, heat transfer, mixing performance etc.
Prevention of dead zones, recirculation regions, too low or too high velocity, pressure, turbulence intensity or temperature, etc.
Flow in blood vessels
Flow in respiratory system
Simulation of phenomena found in nature
You are designing a new product, optimizing an existing one or solving problems from operation? We offer consulting services - including on-site work with your team - at competitive rates on hourly and daily basis, as well as fixed-price projects. Contact us to obtain an offer tailored to your needs.
If you are outsourcing experimental or computational work, you may need an experienced and independent supervisor or reviewer to ensure that you get from your supplier the best possible results.
You are not sure whether something can be simulated or which approach to use? Before you spend too much time and effort in a trial-and-error process, ask us: we might be able to help you!
We can offer for your employees short courses on Fluid Dynamics in general and Computational Fluid Dynamics in particular – on-site or at our location.

Flow around sphere at Re = 50,000: Vorticity in the wake of a smooth sphere (upper) and for a sphere with a trip wire (lower). Trip wire postpones separation and reduces the drag by a factor 3!
Free-surface flow around a container ship (model scale): wave pattern (upper) and comparison of predicted and measured waver profiles along two lines parallel to hull (middle and lower).
