In my last blog I spoke about some of the improvements to our design exploration tools. For version 9.06 of STAR-CCM+, we have worked on another facet of design exploration, by improving the usability of our mesh morpher which allows you to more easily perform free-form, non-parametric, deformation of your geometry.

At the beginning of the year we released the mesh deformation model which enabled you to change the shape of your geometry using morpher. This is an important capability as you may not always have access to the raw CAD data, or indeed the software required to modify it.

Control points illustrate potential improvements

During the opening session of the STAR Global Conference earlier this year, Didier Halbronn, CD-adapco Vice President of European Sales, spoke about our ongoing commitment in the field of multi-disciplinary design exploration (MDX). In this blog I want to highlight a couple of new features in v9.04 of STAR-CCM+ that approach this in different ways.

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.

How do you ensure that methods developed in one part of your organization are deployed by engineers working elsewhere?

Introducing the Simulation Assistant

To answer this question, CD-adapco have developed the Simulation Assistant, an interactive user interface that allows you to capture best practices and deploy them across your whole organization, ensuring repeatability of process and guaranteeing consistency of results.
