CD-adapco has been at the forefront of a revolution in computer-aided engineering in which CFD has become integrated into the Automotive design process, enabling development cycles to be shortened. With more than 30 years of experience, our solutions penetrate every part of the industry, from component suppliers to major OEMs, CD-adapco has a long established reputation as being the leading provider of CFD software and services, including all types of flow, thermal and stress simulation.
Numerical simulation has revolutionized the Automotive industry to the point where CAE is increasingly being used at every stage of the engineering process, and penetrating all levels of industry. Early design evaluations and “what-if” studies eliminate inefficient and unsafe approaches, and validate and optimize correct ones before committing to capital expenditure. Reduction in number of prototypes saves the cost of testing and additional redesign. The resulting benefits for the organization are reduced costs and faster time to market.
In addition to developing CFD codes (including the industry leading STAR-CD and STAR-CCM+), CD-adapco is involved in the development of software tools for: Combustion and Reaction Mechanisms (DARS); Electrical Motors and Machines (SPEED); and Batteries (Battery Design Studio).
Applications areas include:
