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.

STAR-CCM+ v10.06 brings a new and significantly enhanced interface for the Manual Surface Repair Tool, greatly increasing usability for both the experienced and new user. The new interface provides an easier to use and simpler environment for performing manual repair of geometries and surface meshes. Experienced users will find that repairing geometries requires less clicks and makes everything easier to identify and locate. New users will find the new interface easy to navigate and learn.

フィルタリングと選択によりSTAR-CCM+ v10.06における生産性を大幅に向上させるクエリ基準による新しい選択方法を本日はご紹介します。クエリベースの選択は、オブジェクトが追加または削除されるたびに自動的にクエリに基づいてオブジェクトのグループと選択の更新を選択することができます。これはユーザーの選択の意図を保存することにより、工程の選択肢を広げ、ユーザーの複雑なワークフローを自動化するための独自のカスタムツールを作成することができます。

A bearded man in a tunic stood beneath a cloudless blue sky on the hot sand of a beach beside a large sea. All around him were young scholars, also wearing tunics, chattering about the bright sun and the heat it brought. Behind him was a large gray cliff where noisy birds were flying to and from their nests high up on the rock wall.

The bearded man asked the students, "Can you describe what you have learned about this beach?"

The students quieted and began to look around.

One student asked quizzically, "We've just arrived here. What could we have learned? There's nothing here but sand, the birds, the sea, and the sun."

With the release of v10.04, the live update of the solution is now also made available with Optimate. It allows you to get a high level view of your design study in real time, showing you which cases are in progress and which are complete. Not only do you see the status of each design point but while your designs are running, you can connect to them and flip through updating scenes and plots to see how the results are evolving. This ability to not only better understand, but also to take control of your design during your Optimate study ensures that your computational resources are put to good use running the designs that really matter.

STAR-CCM+ v10.04 delivers two new features to help streamline your process for extracting the right information from your simulations. We have added an option to store a history of simulation data at the boundaries only, resulting in a significant savings in disk space and a substantial reduction in time to navigate the stored results. We have also added custom summaries, to enable you to choose exactly what content you want to save from your simulation file in a customized HTML report. With custom summaries, you’ll be able to focus on fewer details, resulting in more effective and efficient communication of the key elements of your simulation efforts.

Growing up (30 years or so ago now), shopping for weekly groceries was nothing like it is today. I was born and raised in a small village outside London and getting food for the week meant visiting many different shops, the butchers for our meat, green-grocers for vegetables and so on. Now I have my own family and I do all my shopping in one place: the supermarket. At this one large store I can get my vegetables, meat, household items and even electronics and clothing.

In the upcoming release of STAR-CCM+, v10.04, we have added two new features to significantly increase the flexibility of the CAD-clients as well as add a new dimension to the transfer. CAD-clients now allow import of reference planes and coordinate systems. These entities may be used within STAR-CCM+ for a range of tasks. CAD-clients now enables direct import of CAD files as well, opening the door to insert a bi-directional link into a template or existing sim file without the need to fire up your CAD package.

With the release of STAR-CCM+ v10.04, we are providing a powerful, and unique, new feature that will allow you to gain greater understanding of your flow and thermal analyses. For the first time, you will be able to use the adjoint solver to look at sensitivities not only within your fluid domain but your solid also. By taking account of more of the physics in your sensitivities, you can now use adjoint to help provide a better optimized design, earlier in the product development process thus reducing the risk of failures and costly product recalls.

In the upcoming release of STAR-CCM+ v10.04, we have implemented a new equilibrium motion type for DFBI bodies is used for simulating the motion of moving bodies that tend towards a steady state equilibrium position. With this feature the body is incrementally ‘teleported’ to the current best estimate of the equilibrium position rather than allowing it to oscillate freely about it.
