International Branches

CIMNE-USA (Washington DC, USA)

CIMNE-USA is an educational and scientific research organization, affiliated with the International Centre for Numerical Methods in Engineering (CIMNE).

The objective of CIMNE-USA is leading scientific research and development projects supported by government, foundations and industry sources.

The branch also carries out educational activities related to advanced numerical methods. It participates in national and international conferences and symposia and works jointly with Aulas CIMNE, in cooperation with US and international universities. CIMNE-USA also supports visiting scientists.

Funded by the Office of Naval Research (ONR)
30/09/2016 – 01/10/2019

CIMNE-Latin America (Santa Fe, Argentina)

CIMNE is represented in Latin America by the CIMNE Latin American Foundation (FCL).

The CIMNE-Latin American Foundation (FCL) is located in the city of Santa Fe (Argentina), the place where the first CIMNE Classroom in the Latin American region was created in cooperation with University of Litoral.

Since its creation, the CIMNE-Latin American Foundation has developed a wide range of activities in Latin America related to training, research and dissemination of advances in numerical methods.

Project Laguna Paiva. Hydrodynamic study

Many of these projects are developed with the support of CIMNE, Aulas CIMNE, universities and public organizations.
The projects in which FCL participates can be classified into the following research areas:

• Engineering and Environment
• Industrial Processes
• Numerical Methods

FCL also takes part and organises courses, seminars, workshops, among others.


Development of advanced tools for computational design of engineering materials. CIMNE-Latin America also carries out actions of representation and dissemination of numerical methods in engineering of the centre in the area.
