As the demand surges towards greater fuel efficiency, quieter aircrafts, lesser emissions and reduced cost/passenger seat/km, innovation is driving the propulsion systems design of today to deliver these results.
STAR-CCM+ covers a wide variety of applications in the field of aircraft and space propulsion. Be it basic turbomachinery performance, combustion, rotor/stator interaction, plume analysis or erosion, the physics capabilities of STAR-CCM+ are well suited and validated to cover all these areas.
Technologies like the Harmonic Balance Method, FW-H aeroacoustic prediction model, Digital Analysis of Reaction Systems (DARS) are all complementary to propulsion system analysis within STAR-CCM+.
In addition to aircraft propulsion, the space industry is undergoing a major transformation with the advent of private sector spacecrafts and in this competitive environment, numerical simulation plays an increasingly major role in aiding an optimized propulsion system design with a short turnaround time.
CD-adapco products offer simulation capabilities covering a wide variety of propulsion applications as follows:
