The good news for pending engineering graduates is that you no longer need to worry much about making lattes at Starbucks after earning your diploma. According to a recent article in the Wall Street Journal, college graduate unemployment and underemployment is down and incomes are rising. Unemployment for graduates dropped to 4.9% in September 2015 and, better yet, 8 of the 10 highest paying degrees were engineering majors.

We've pulled together leading companies for the first STAR Career Day. Students will get a 'day in the life' perspective from executives at PACCAR, Boeing, Daimler, Pacific National Labs, and CD-adapco. Not sure what to expect in your first interview? Hiring managers using STAR-CCM+ in their company will give real-world advice on the skill sets, training, interview scenarios, and CV/résumé content they look for in new graduate candidates.

Data Focus is a unique visualization technique to explore and interrogate results interactively. Data Focus provides a live and interactive link between quantitative numerical data in plots and qualitative visual data in scenes. This link between quantitative and qualitative analysis allows the user to easily and effectively gain insight into the key influences on product performance.

Local surface remeshing allows for remeshing only selected areas when changing mesh parameters or performing design changes, reducing surface mesh generation time up to an order of magnitude and a key enabler of efficient design space exploration.

Until the release of STAR-CCM+ v11.02, composite particles were needed when modelling anything cylindrical and, to get a realistic representation, this required a large number of spheres.With the introduction of cylindrical particles in v11.02, users will experience increased accuracy and reduced computational time, a rare win-win situation in simulation.

With STAR-CCM+ v11.02, you can now combine two or more materials when simulating extrusions, enabling the analysis of more complex products targeted to very specific applications. For example, multi-luminal medical tubing has very narrow tolerances and needs to meet the highest quality standards. Consequently, it’s critical to understand how design changes to the die profile or variations in feedstock properties can impact end product quality.

According to a September 2015 article in Empowering Pumps magazine, “Pumps that are not inherently efficient in their peer group will either be removed from the market or will require redesign in order to meet higher efficiency levels. Some estimates put this at up to 20% of the pumps on the market today.”

Our mission as a company is to help you discover better designs, faster (and stay ahead of the competition!). What this means is that we provide you with right tools to intelligently drive your designs and help you make sound real-world engineering decisions but equally important, we make sure that Multidisciplinary Design eXploration (MDX) is affordable for your organization by offering MDX-friendly licensing models..

As anyone who has ever raised a child will know, parenting (in whatever form) is a scale-up problem. Each child is the product of many complex and interacting variables. Some of the obvious ones include: likes and dislikes; temperament; learning preferences; and emotional, social and physical needs. None of these are constant, and all of them change as the child grows. Most people deal with this challenge with the help of more experienced parents and caregivers, by reading books on parenting, or, most often of all, good old trial and error.

Like all commercial industries, companies operating in the life sciences sector are keenly interested in discovering avenues to grow revenues and lower costs, while at the same time increasing innovation. As such, parties in this always evolving sector are exploring many ways to increase the bottom line while also providing the highest quality products and care for customers.

Given how much time is spent flying around in any given planet’s atmosphere – could the Millennium Falcon, arguably the most iconic spaceship of all time, actually fly? I felt it would be fun to try and find out.
This IS the CFD simulation you've been looking for....
