About MultiMechanics

What We Do

We develop software that helps engineers accelerate innovation and the product development lifecycle by virtually predicting failure in advanced materials at an unprecedented level of speed and accuracy.

MultiMechanics was founded in 2010 and is based in Omaha, Nebraska. One of our first projects was helping the US Army Research Laboratory explore impact applications, and the company has since evolved to specialize in helping material manufacturers and their clients better understand how composites will behave under extreme conditions.

“The accuracy and speed afforded by MultiMechanics, and its efficient integration with commonly used commercial finite element software packages, is changing the way we develop new materials and interact with our customers,”

-Nicolas Cudre Mauroux, Chief Technology Officer at Solvay
