I am pleased to announce the availability of STAR-CCM+ v9.02 on The Steve Portal!

My objective when we started to discuss the list of features and enhancements for the STAR-CCM+ v9 versions was ambitious. Clearly, adding realism to the simulations, enhancing workflows, increasing throughput and improve accuracy all at the same time was truly a challenge and I believe our development teams succeeded one more time in delivering it.

One of the greatest challenges of engineering analysis is the ability to understand how changes in geometry and flow features might influence your system’s performance. For a long time, the only way to gain insight into the sensitivity of engineering objectives to changes in input was to run multiple analyses and then dig through the results. The introduction of the adjoint solver in STAR-CCM+ v8.04, however, changed that - allowing for direct access to sensitivity information from a single simulation.

Volume rendering, a well-known scientific visualization method, is being introduced with our latest version of STAR-CCM+! (v9.02)

This February we announce the release of STAR-CCM+ v9.02 and one of the most exiting features to join the wealth of multiphase capabilities in this release is the Dispersed Multiphase (DMP) model.

The simulation of applications such as aircraft deicing/anti-icing, and vehicle soiling and water management will now take a fraction of the time with the new Dispersed Multiphase (DMP) model in STAR-CCM+ v9.02.
