CD-adapco에서 근무하면서 가장 큰 성과 중 하나는 곧 출시되는 STAR-CCM+ 새로운 버전의 뛰어난 기능들을 보여주는 멋진 수많은 애니메이션을 볼 수 있다는 것입니다. 아쉬운 점은 새로운 기능이 출시 전까지 이러한 것들을 공유할 수 없다는 부분입니다. 저는 오늘 제가 보고 또 다시 보게 되는 가장 좋아하는 두 가지 영상을 보여드릴 수 있어 매우 기쁘게 생각합니다. 두 영상은 움직이는 형상과 경계면 사이에서의 직접적인 모델 접촉 또는 충돌에 대한 해석이 가능한 STAR-CCM+ v9.04의 DFBI(Dynamic Fluid Body Interaction) 솔버를 사용한 새로운 접촉 모델을 보여주고 있습니다.

많은 사람들이 STAR-CCM+ 인터페이스 앞에서 긴 시간을 보낸 후 자연스럽게 다음과 같은 질문을 떠오르게 합니다. “더 쉽게 할 수 있는 방법이 있을까?” 결국, 엔지니어들은 명쾌한 해결책을 찾게 되었고 소프트웨어 작업에 소비되는 시간을 줄이기 위한 기회로 뛰어들게 되었습니다. 운 좋게도 STAR-CCM+ v9.04 는 작업을 더 쉽게 하기 위해 만들어진 새로운 시간 절약 기능에 대한 다양한 기능들이 포함되어 있습니다.

Although researchers claim to have cracked the formula for a supersonic car (SSC) capable of reaching a record speed of 1000 mph (1600 kmph) and the ability to cope with the aerodynamic characteristics of travelling that fast, I am here to say… “Meh - been there, done that!”

Unfortunately, there has been some debate regarding the veracity of my 1000 mph VW Beetle. Therefore, I am widening the audience to ensure that proper analysis of the photographic evidence can ensue...

Transonic VW Beetle

If it was possible that anything could be 100% pure, drawing gas out of the ground could be a piece of cake. Gas, unadulterated by any other substance could travel easily through the pipes without damaging a bit of the structure designed for its capture. Unfortunately, this isn't how the world works.

All three states of matter are represented in the process of extracting natural gas from the earth - solids (sand) and liquid (water) come along for the ride. This wrecks havoc on the pipeline, especially at T-junctions and choke valves. Sand banging against flow obstructions causes corrosion which ultimately leads to economic and production losses.

It's become a bit of a cliche to say that our latest Conference is the "most successful ever", as these things tend to grow organically from year-to-year. However, having attended over 20 STAR Conferences (as both as customer and employee of CD-adapco), I can honestly say that SGC14 was different. Not only was it our biggest ever conference (with well over 500 participants from every corner of the globe), it also featured the most diverse collection of simulation success stories we've ever heard.

Speaking to the STAR Global Conference 2014, in Vienna, President Steve MacDonald reveals that CD-adapco is working to add a Finite Element solver to STAR-CCM+.

An intern joined our team recently. Fresh out of college, he was tasked with finding best practices for a particularly complex nozzle application. The internship was only to last a few months, but our new colleague was keen on showing the "real" world what he could do. With his new CFD toolset, he set-up the complete analysis with a full-blown-reacting-flow-on-the-real-geometry case - on day three... On day four, he was looking nervously at the screen wondering why his residuals continued to climb and the case did not converge.

I am pleased to announce the availability of STAR-CCM+ v9.02 on The Steve Portal!

My objective when we started to discuss the list of features and enhancements for the STAR-CCM+ v9 versions was ambitious. Clearly, adding realism to the simulations, enhancing workflows, increasing throughput and improve accuracy all at the same time was truly a challenge and I believe our development teams succeeded one more time in delivering it.

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.

Volume rendering, a well-known scientific visualization method, is being introduced with our latest version of STAR-CCM+! (v9.02)
