STAR-CCM+ is unrivaled in its ability to quickly and efficiently tackle complex geometries. Shown is an analysis with STAR-CCM+ displaying the complex flow patterns as a result of the accidental deployment of a thrust reverser on a business jet while in-flight.
In this simulation of an F18 flying at high angle of attack, the flow around the plane is visualized with streamlines, the pressure is represented over the plane using a grayscale colormap, and the wingtip vortices are shown using an iso-surface of Q Criterion.
STAR-CCM+ has a Discrete Element Modeling capability which allows for the simulation of individual particles such as dirt and mud. DEM is especially suited for design of bulk materials and process equipment such as mining trucks, making sure they operate as efficiently as possible.
CD-adapco has invested heavily to produce the most productive and robust process in the industry for simulating the aerodynamics performance of ground based vehicles. STAR-CCM+ has a wide range of turbulence models including detached eddy simulations (DES) as shown on the cab of a truck.
High angle of attack re-entry simulation of the NASA X-34 with adaptive meshing for off-body shock capture: STAR-CCM+ offers a comprehensive range of efficient solvers for flow regimes from low speed up to hypersonic (whilst the fluid remains a continuum). Image courtesy of TLG Aerospace.
STAR-CCM+ is unrivaled in its ability to quickly and efficiently tackle complex geometries. Shown here are surface pressures on an Airbus A380 with flaps deployed and landing gear modeled. Streamlines visualize the flow pattern in the wake of the aircraft.
