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....

About 200 hundred years ago, the first industrial revolution saw the transition from bio-fuel-powered, hand production methods to new, factory-based, machine-aided, fossil-fuel-powered manufacturing processes. This was a major turning point in history, which influenced, to some extent, every aspect of daily life.
Simulation for clean energy

DARS is a simulation tool for the 0D and 1D management and analysis of chemical reactions. The new v2.12 release focuses on boosting throughput when exploring new fuel blends under a wide range of operating conditions. The fuel libraries generated with DARS v2.12 can then be used to source combustion analysis carried out with STAR-CD® and STAR-CCM+®.

Parts-based Interface is a unique capability in v10.06 offering a distinct improvement to performance and scalability using parts-based workflows and resulting in faster simulation turnaround time. This is a key capability for applications which involve many parts such as vehicle thermal management, electronics cooling and heat exchangers.

The v10.06 release features the introduction of Computational Rheology, a new engineering discipline in STAR-CCM+. Computational Rheology further expands the multidisciplinary scope of STAR-CCM+ and targets problems where viscous and viscoelastic effects are dominant. The types of applications that are now possible to solve are flow in static mixers, flow into containers, pumping slurries with significant heat generation, as well as extrusions and material processing.

At CD-adapco, we have spent many years working to bridge the gap between disciplines by developing techniques to effectively communicate results between different physics. With the release of STAR-CCM+ v10.06, we allow you to more easily perform flow, thermal and stress problems using the finite element based solid mechanics capabilities.
