Who we are

FOSS is a company aiming at providing high quality software and services in the fields of optimization and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), to support industrial applications. We constantly develop new software solutions for accelerating CFD simulations and support aerodynamic and multidisciplinary optimization, based on gradient-based and gradient-free optimization algorithms, including artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning. FOSS, the Greek word for ‘light’, was founded in 2013 by three PhD holders in the field of CFD-based optimization and has its headquarters in Greece. We are a dedicated team of specialists aiming to develop fast and reliable software tools for tackling industrial design optimization problems. 

Our expertise

Our know-how covers the whole range of CFD-based optimization tools, including adjoint-assisted, gradient-based optimization methods and gradient-free approaches based on metamodel-assisted evolutionary algorithms.

We develop our own GPU-based CFD and adjoint solver, with a considerable speed-up compared to pure CPU-based alternatives 

We are actively taking part in the development of an adjoint library for the open source CFD toolbox, OpenFOAM, part of which is publicly available

We develop a metamodel and AI-assisted tool based on evolutionary algorithms which treats the evaluation software as a black-box and can be used in numerical optimization in all scientific fields
