Clients using STAR-CCM+ for vehicle simulation have been growing at a steady rate. A wide range of applications are being used in the ground transportation sector, all the way from vehicle aerodynamics, passenger thermal comfort, to HVAC and component analyses. Clients today use STAR-CCM+ to optimize vehicle aerodynamic designs. Other clients are taking advantage of automation in STAR-CCM+ to achieve one day turn-around for front end cooling. The ability to run combined fluid solid models are allowing engineers to start modeling thermal cycles which in the past have been limited to just test data.
This presentation takes a look at a few of the areas where clients have design state-of-the-art simulation and impact design through simulation.
