Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)
Virtual Prototyping - the fastest and most cost-effective way to reduce your time-to-market while improving quality is in the use of pre-production analysis.  Multiple prototypes, product recalls, too much material – these are problems that plague developers and can be addressed by virtual prototype development.  Matrix offers New Zealand’s leading Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and other engineering analysis products and consultant expertise, with years of experience in a variety of industries.
