ADINA R & D was founded in 1986 by Dr. K. J. Bathe and associates. The exclusive mission of the company is the development of the ADINA System for the analysis of solids, structures, fluids and fluid-structure interactions. The company does not engage in consulting work except in supporting the users of the ADINA System. ADINA R & D supports the ADINA software products on the widest range of hardware platforms in the industry, from supercomputers to workstations to low-cost personal computers, which run under Windows. The same ADINA analysis options are offered on each of these platforms with differences in speed of executions only due to the hardware and operating systems used.
