The number of automotive engineers using STAR-CCM+ for vehicle simulation has been growing rapidly. A wide range of applications are being used in the automotive industry, from vehicle aerodynamics, passenger thermal comfort, to HVAC and component analyses. Each year, new features or improved, more efficient processes are introduced that help our clients.
This presentation will look into some of the new features for STAR-CCM+ and how these features are being used productively in industry. It includes an overview of the current gains in turn-around time using coupled solver for aerodynamics, fast turn-around time for detail transient simulations, new wall film model to aid in soiling research, innovative automation for fast turn-around time with front end cooling, and state of the art, detail component temperature prediction.
