VirtusAero LLC


VirtusAero is the Power of Aero.

At VirtusAero we believe that powerful software should be easy to use. This simple idea drives us to improve every aspect of software that we develop and support. We work hard to incorporate our knowledge and expertise into the tools we build so that researchers and engineers can more quickly and easily find the answers they need. Some of our software has even been criticized as being “too easy to use – like playing a video game.” To us, that sounds like success!

Since 2015, VirtusAero has pursued research and development of computational tools for aerospace applications. We provide engineering consulting, software development, and support for the United States aerospace community, with a particular focus and expertise in hypersonics. 

VirtusAero is the power of aero. With its name taken from the Latin word “virtus” meaning power or strength, and the Latin “aer” or Greek “aēr” meaning air, VirtusAero offers powerful solutions and support.

VirtusAero offers support services for the US3D Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) code, which was developed at the University of Minnesota. We also develop, distribute and support the STABL2D and STABL3D software for analysis of hypersonic boundary layer stability and transition.

In addition to developing and supporting STABL2D/STABL3D and US3D, VirtusAero continually pursues new research and development opportunities seeks to collaborate in the areas of aerospace engineering, computational fluid mechanics and hypersonic gas dynamics.
