At Ennova our goal is simple: To enable the CFD engineer to build models in hours that previously took months without sacri cing quality or accuracy.
Ennova Technologies develops leading edge grid generation software for computational uid dy- namics (CFD). Ennova was founded in 2007 by
Dr. Michael Hohmeyer, Devendra Rajwade, and IDAJ, Inc. Both Dr. Hohmeyer and Mr. Rajwade have over 20 years experience in CFD software development. First, with ICEM CFD (co-founded by Dr. Hohmeyer) and later with Ansys (Ansys ac- quired ICEM CFD in 2000). IDAJ has been a distrib- utor of CAE software in Asia for over 20 years.
The software developed by Dr. Hohmeyer and Mr. Rajwade has been widely used
to increase the e ciency of products
ranging from automobiles to aircraft to wind turbines.
Our headquarters, located in the San Francisco Bay Area, thrives off the surrounding culture of the tech industry.
Because Ennova allows a wide variety of industries to use this software, we are often traveling to showcase Ennova.
Dr. Hohmeyer received his bachelor's degree in Math and Physics from U.C.
Berkeley in 1986.
He then worked for Control Data Corp. developing the ICEM DDN CAD package.
He returned to U.C. Berkeley to earn his Ph.D. in Computer Science in 1992.
His thesis was on
Surface Intersection .
While still working on his Ph.D. Dr. Hohmeyer started ICEM CFD Engineering
with Dr. Armin Wulf
and Dr. Wayne Chrisptopher. At ICEM Dr. Hohmeyer developed the first
commercial CAD based tetrahedral
meshing software ICEM CFD Tetra. He also developed the still popular ICEM
The ICEM CFD was
sold to Ansys in 2000 .
Dr. Hohmeyer continued to work there until leaving in 2007 to form Ennova
with Devendra Rajwade and Chingzhou Hsu.
Mr. Hsu is the founder and CEO of IDAJ. IDAJ is onen of he largest CAE dedicated distributor and technical solution company in Asia. IDAJ is also one of the two major investors in Ennova and exclusive distributor of Ennova in Far East territory. IDAJ's early investment in Ennova and Mr. Hsu's input into the direction of Ennova have been crucial.
Mr. Egan received his bachelor's from University of Aukland in Mechanical
Engineering and his
masters in in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from Cal State Long
He started his career at Adapco and then went on to use CFD to design
America's Cup boats for
Team New Zealand and later the Prada Syndicate.
He brings years of experience as a CFD user to help us design a CFD software
revolutionize the CFD process.
Dr. Magnuson received his bachelor's degree in Math Chemistry and Physics from St. Olaf College and his Ph.D. in Mathematics from MIT. He worked at Control Data and ICEM CFD Engineering with Dr. Hohmeyer and later with CAD Nexus and Ceispace. He is an expert in CAD systems, data exchange and geometry repair.
Dr. Matsushima received his Bachelor's degree from Kyoto University and his
Ph.D. from U.C. Berkeley in Mechanical Engineering.
He has many years experience in CFD and grid generation working for CD
Amir joined our team at Ennova Technologies as the Senior CFD Engineer in 2012. He received his bachelor's and master's degrees, both in Aerospace Engineering, from Sharif University of Technology in Iran. He then moved to Canada to pursue a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering with a specialization in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) at the University of Waterloo. Before joining Ennova, he worked on various projects including flight simulation, CFD modeling of molten metals, and wind energy. In Ennova, Amir's role is to create interfaces for physics setup and data visualization. While not at work, he likes hiking and cycling in the scenic hills of the Bay Area.
Caitlyn received her Bachelors in English and Mandarin Chinese from the University of Mississippi. Caitlyn has studied Mandarin Chinese for seven years and brings extensive business operation/marketing experience to Ennova Technologies.
