We are a team of dedicated developers with scientific and engineering background that urge to create highly efficient and fast building simulation models, with very high level of detail and accurate representation of physics (and detailed model and solver validation). Also, we strive to create a very user friendly program interface with an innovative visual input data control principle.

The development team originates from the building physics group of the Institut für Bauklimatik, Faculty of Architecture, TU Dresden, Germany. Most of us are civil engineers with a passion for creating user-friendly simulation models, such as THERAKLES, DELPHIN, MASTERSIM. Also, we have created a common post-processing tool POSTPROC 2, that can be used for all of our simulation models. SIM-VICUS builds upon 25 years of experience in simulation model and user interface development at IBK@TU Dresden.
