Dear ADINA Users and Prospective Users,

I would like to inform you that I have sold the company ADINA R&D, Inc. to Bentley Systems.

After having worked on ADINA for about 40 years, this was a difficult decision for me, but it is a very exciting and excellent step considering the future. There is a large synergy between the objectives of Bentley with my own objectives – for ADINA to be a star worldwide in engineering analysis and design.

Please read the press release and FAQ for more information.

I believe that ADINA users will have an excellent future working with Bentley. Please look at the Bentley website to see the very impressive work accomplished by the company and their excellent vision for the future.

I will be working closely with Bentley colleagues for at least the next two years as a technical advisor to help in the efforts for a smooth transition as well as further developments. Of course, please contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.

To all our valued ADINA users – thank you so much for your trust and excellent cooperation over the years!

And to our prospective ADINA users – we look forward to working with you in providing new solutions of your nonlinear analysis problems.

Wishing you all the best for the future!


Klaus-Jürgen Bathe

Technical Advisor, Bentley Systems

Developer of ADINA and Founder of ADINA R&D, Inc.
