About us

Upstream CFD was founded in January 2019 by a team of five experts in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and Computational Aeroacoustics (CAA). We are an established team, who have been working together for over 10 years. Altogether, the team of founders bring a total of 60 years of professional experience in R&D and industrial consulting. Our ambition in founding Upstream CFD is to establish a sustainable platform, from which to deliver our specialist expertise for challenging industrial applications via a range of tailored services.
