One of the great things about working for CD-adapco is that I get to see a lot of cool animations that illustrate the exciting capabilities that are coming soon in STAR-CCM+. The frustrating part is that usually I can’t share these with you until just before the new feature is released. Which is why today I’m excited to show you two of my favorites, which I find myself watching over and over again. Both videos illustrate the new contact model for the DFBI (Dynamic Fluid Body Interaction) solver in STAR-CCM+ v9.04, which allows you to directly model contact and collisions between moving bodies and boundaries.

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.

CD-adapco is committed to the philosophy of “simulating systems”. This gives our users the opportunity to take into account all the factors likely to influence the performance of their product in its operational life when building a simulation. As part of that commitment, one of our ongoing development themes in STAR-CCM+ involves making multiphase flows more accessible to all of our users. For this, we introduce a feature that allows you to tackle a wider range of industrial applications (bridging the “gaps” described above) by further improving solver performance.

RSM turbulence is useful for swirling flows

Let's explore some of the great new multiphase flow features that you'll be able to enjoy in STAR-CCM+ v8.06...
