External aerodynamics analysis on a hellfire missile using Optimate. Optimate was used to automatically run a parametric study of different angle of attacks on the missile aero characteristics.
Optimization of electronics cooling fins using Optimate+ : CD-adapco has partnered with Red Cedar Technology to deliver Optimate+, an add-on module for STAR-CCM+ that offers a breakthrough solution for design exploration and optimization with CAE/CFD simulations
A wide range of flow regimes can be simulated using STAR-CCM+, including inviscid, laminar, turbulent (RANS, LES, DES), transition modeling. incompressible through to hypersonic. Visualized here are the Mach contours on a Scud missile.
