Software Cradle

Advancing the role of simulation in engineering design

Software Cradle is a leading provider of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software including SC/Tetra (general purpose unstructured mesh), scSTREAM (general purpose Cartesian mesh), and HeatDesigner (Cartesian mesh for electronics).  Since inception in 1984, Cradle has established itself as a major innovator that is advancing the role of simulation in engineering design.  Our software products are well known for ease of use, exceptionally fast and powerful meshing, efficient solvers, sophisticated physical models, and professional post processing.  Cradle’s worldwide presence consists of offices in Japan, North America, France, and a network of distributors servicing and supporting all parts of the globe.


SC/Tetra is a general purpose, unstructured mesh software that is efficiency and high fidelity focused for solving fluid/thermal problems involving complex geometries. scSTREAM uses a structured mesh to model general purpose thermal/fluid applications where tiny details and curved surfaces are not critical for an accurate simulation.

Cradle’s Fluid analysis software running on a Nor-Tech HPC Cluster is essential to reduce time and cost for product design and manufacturing development.
