STAR-CCM+ v11.04 brings Solution History support for derived parts! This improves interaction with transient results and facilitates more effective communication by storing iso-surfaces and all section types (plane, constrained plane, cylinder, sphere, and arbitrary section) in your Solution History files.

The new automatic time stepping in STAR-CCM+® v11.04 automatically adjusts the timestep size of simulations dynamically. This helps to reduce time to achieve solutions for transient runs by avoiding the use of unduly small timesteps.

Custom Sim Trees in STAR-CCM+ v11.04 are a fundamentally new way to work with the sim tree, allowing users to create smaller node trees in a separate window for less scrolling and easier navigation overall.

STAR-CCM+ is now part of the new Simcenter™ Porfolio for predictive engineering analytics. Simcenter combines simulation and physical testing with design exploration and data analytics to help customers develop digital twins that accurately predict product performance.

Deriving and supplying appropriate properties for complex structures has not been an easy task, but all that is about to change with the upcoming release of STAR-CCM+® v11.04, and the introduction of the multi-layer solid model for solids and shells. This feature allows for treating laminates made up from multiple layers of different materials as multicomponent solids, automatically determining the effective overall components of anisotropic thermal conductivity. This makes setting conjugate heat transfer problems with complicated assemblies involving a lot of laminates significantly easier. This is particularly applicable for applications in vehicle thermal management and electronics cooling.

In STAR-CCM+® v11.04, the highly regarded (extended) pom-pom adds to our list of viscoelastic constitutive models. Best suited for highly branched polymers like low density polyethylene (LDPE), it is able to most accurately predict viscoelastic responses for elongational flows commonly encountered in industrial processing.

Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI) is the study of thermo-mechanical interactions of a fluid and a solid structure. FSI modeling for implant device design is taking on even greater importance in the current medical device environment, as producing better designs, faster, is imperative in this industry to reduce operating costs and introduce necessary potentially live-saving devices to market.

At this year's AIAA SCITECH annual conference, I sat down with the editors of Aerospace America to talk about the future of CFD analysis in the aerospace and defense market.  Predicting the future of CFD is the subject of intense debate. The recent publication of the NASA led CFD Vision 2030 study attempted to define the key challenges that face the industry over the next 15 years. In the report, the authors identified several obstacles to wider adoption of CFD in the aerospace industry:

The demand for safe and efficient Li-ion batteries has never been as high as it is today. By coupling Battery Design Studio® to HEEDS® MDO, battery manufacturers can intelligently drive their designs through a range of design parameters and operating conditions. This speeds up the design process, facilitates innovation and helps battery designers stay ahead of the competition.

So it’s finally official. I am delighted to announce that CD-adapco is now a part of the Siemens PLM family.

Back in January, when we first announced that Siemens PLM Software had entered into an agreement to purchase CD-adapco, legal regulations prevented us from talking in any detail about the deal and its consequences. Since the deal has now formally closed I am happy to take this opportunity to describe in detail the extent to which it will benefit customers of both CD-adapco and Siemens, as well as the PLM marketplace as a whole.
