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.

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.

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.

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 v10.02, we have a new feature, adjoint error estimation, which leverages the power of adjoint to highlight discretization errors in your mesh that may be due to inappropriately sized and distributed cells. These discretization errors may, in turn, affect the accuracy of your engineering results.

私の前回のブログでは、私達の設計探査ツールに関するいくつかの改善についてお話しました。STAR-CCM+ バージョンv9.06では、より簡単に形状を自由造形、ノンパラメトリック、変形を可能としたメッシュモーフィングの使い勝手の向上による、設計探査のもうひとつの面を開発しています。

2014年3月に開催されたSTAR Global Conferenceのオープニングセッションにて、CD-adapcoのヨーロッパ営業担当副社長のDidier Halbronnは多領域設計探査(multi-disciplinary design exploration:MDX)における取り組みに関して話しました。このブログでは、別の方法で多領域設計探査にアプローチするSTAR-CCM+ v9.04の2つの新機能にハイライトを当てたいと思います。

One of the greatest challenges of engineering analysis is the ability to understand how changes in geometry and flow features might influence your system’s performance. For a long time, the only way to gain insight into the sensitivity of engineering objectives to changes in input was to run multiple analyses and then dig through the results. The introduction of the adjoint solver in STAR-CCM+ v8.04, however, changed that - allowing for direct access to sensitivity information from a single simulation.

How do you ensure that methods developed in one part of your organization are deployed by engineers working elsewhere?

Introducing the Simulation Assistant

To answer this question, CD-adapco have developed the Simulation Assistant, an interactive user interface that allows you to capture best practices and deploy them across your whole organization, ensuring repeatability of process and guaranteeing consistency of results.
