At CD-adapco, we have spent many years working to bridge the gap between disciplines by developing techniques to effectively communicate results between different physics. With the release of STAR-CCM+ v10.06, we allow you to more easily perform flow, thermal and stress problems using the finite element based solid mechanics capabilities.

With the release of v10.04, the live update of the solution is now also made available with Optimate. It allows you to get a high level view of your design study in real time, showing you which cases are in progress and which are complete. Not only do you see the status of each design point but while your designs are running, you can connect to them and flip through updating scenes and plots to see how the results are evolving. This ability to not only better understand, but also to take control of your design during your Optimate study ensures that your computational resources are put to good use running the designs that really matter.

As we have developed STAR-CCM+ we have always worked to provide a tool based on the philosophy that integration allows the engineering analyst to cut down simulation time and cost while expanding application scope. With v10.04, we make a huge leap forward in these aims, with the release of a finite element solid stress solver to provide computational solid mechanics capabilities from the same integrated user interface you are already very familiar with.

So why did we develop this solid mechanics capability in STAR-CCM+?

With the release of STAR-CCM+ v10.04, we are providing a powerful, and unique, new feature that will allow you to gain greater understanding of your flow and thermal analyses. For the first time, you will be able to use the adjoint solver to look at sensitivities not only within your fluid domain but your solid also. By taking account of more of the physics in your sensitivities, you can now use adjoint to help provide a better optimized design, earlier in the product development process thus reducing the risk of failures and costly product recalls.

STAR-CCM+와 혁신적인 격자프로세스의 등장으로 빠르고 쉬게 격자를 생성할 수 있게 되었습니다. 10.02버전은 보다 더 지능적이고 쉽게 격자를 생성할 수 있는 새로운 기능들이 추가 되었습니다. 여기서 이야기하려는 도구는 적절하지 않은 크기와 분산된 셀로 인한 격자의 이산화 오류를 강조하기 위해 Adjoint의 능력을 활용한 Adjoint 오류 평가입니다. 이러한 이산화 오류는 엔지니어링 결과의 정확도에 영향을 미치게 됩니다.

지난 블로그 포스팅에서는 최적 설계 도구의 향상된 기능에 대해 언급하였습니다. STAR-CCM+ v9.06에서는 형상의 변형을 파라미터 없이 자유현상으로 더 쉽게 수행하기 위해 격자 몰퍼의 사용성을 향상시킴으로써 최적 설계의 다른 측면을 위해 힘써 왔습니다.

올 초, 우리는 몰퍼를 사용해 형상의 모양을 변형시킬 수 있는 격자 변형 모델을 출시하였습니다. 이는 CAD 데이터 원본을 이용할 수 있을 뿐만 아니라, 실제 소프트웨어에서 그것을 수정하기 위한 중요한 기능입니다.

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.
