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.

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.

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.

Data Focus is a unique visualization technique to explore and interrogate results interactively. Data Focus provides a live and interactive link between quantitative numerical data in plots and qualitative visual data in scenes. This link between quantitative and qualitative analysis allows the user to easily and effectively gain insight into the key influences on product performance.

With STAR-CCM+ v11.02, you can now combine two or more materials when simulating extrusions, enabling the analysis of more complex products targeted to very specific applications. For example, multi-luminal medical tubing has very narrow tolerances and needs to meet the highest quality standards. Consequently, it’s critical to understand how design changes to the die profile or variations in feedstock properties can impact end product quality.


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。

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.

We know a good scientific visualization when we see one – colormaps are a big part of this and when used effectively, they can make all the difference. The ability to create your own colormap within STAR-CCM+Ⓡ has been around for a long time and around this time last year, we delivered a full featured interactive colormap editor with the v9.04 release.

Still, what makes for a good colormap is not common knowledge. Surprisingly, the most frequently used colormap for scientific visualization, the rainbow colormap, is regarded as one of the least effective.

In this blog I'll tell you how to choose the most effective colormap for you application, allowing you to present your results in a more attractive, more informative way.

When asked about the amount of time he spent on his speech preparation, Woodrow Wilson responded: “That depends on the length of the speech. If it is a ten-minute speech it takes me all of two weeks to prepare it; if it is a half-hour speech it takes me a week; if I can talk as long as I want to it requires no preparation at all. I am ready now.” Perhaps some of us can relate to former President Wilson’s remarks. Without any time constraints, exploring a .sim file, or maybe several, in detail, could be an engaging and informative exercise lasting the better part of an afternoon. Yet more often than not, we only have that brief ten minutes to share our story. And, quite often, review requests come on short notice. What if you could quickly assemble and effectively communicate your results from several simulations in a matter of minutes? What if you could walk from one meeting room to the next, with laptop in hand, and be able to quickly collaborate with different teams? As it turns out, there is a way: STAR-View+, new and improved.
