Re: History of Ansys Inc.
Dear Hayate,

First: I am not paid by Ansys in any way. If I would work for them, I would be able to get the data.

Second: Why should I create my own solver? I think the improvement of existing ones would help better in the daily work for engineers all around the world. But for users of CFD-codes it might be interessting how it was developed. What if there are only two codes left an you would have to choose the right one for you?

Third: I thought that might be interessting for new people in this business. If this is not the case for you, I am sorry. I think CFD is beyond the state that only nerds deal with it. So there might be other aspects than just the code.

Re: History of Ansys Inc.

But that was exactly my point. As I did some research on that issue I found several product webpages which apear as an independent product but in reality belong to ansys. If you read the small print you will find the references but not on the first glance.

But I do not want to screw ansys as the devil. I just wanted to give an account of the historical facts.

So if anyone knows more dates, companies etc please write it here. This might also come from Ansys guys (see that Robin?:).
