  • STAR-CAST
    • New user interface


      • Casting User Interface (CUI) is a dedicated user interface to guide user through the setup of casting simulations
      • Enables set up of:
        • Physical models
        • Material models
        • Boundary conditions
        • Initial conditions
        • Interfaces
        • Process parameters
        • Simulation steps
        • Visualization and reports
      • Supported casting types:
        • Investment casting
        • Sand casting
        • Permanent die casting
      • Supported simulation types:
        • Filling and solidification
        • Isothermal filling
        • Thermal simulation
    • Optional switching function for Carman-Kozeny mushy zone permeability and Metzner slurry viscosity model
    • Casting material database updated to latest version
    • VOF wall porosity model now compatible on baffle interfaces
    • Forchheimer's term included for mushy zone permeability model


    • Relative velocity vector field available for mushy zone permeability model
  • Battery simulation module
    • Battery mesher model removed and replaced with a mesh continuum with the resurfacer model and thin mesher
    • Voltage limit option
      • Prints a warning message or stops simulation when one or more cells reach pre-defined voltage limit
    • Stackplates may now be run with an 1x1 electrical mesh
    • User may now specify offset direction in serial/parallel directions for module configuration manager
    • 3D micro-structural model now accounts for strong non-linearity introduced by thermodynamic factor
    • Performance improvement for spiral models
      • Spiral models use separate grids for positive and negative electrodes, and solve unit cells for each grid
      • The algorithm was changed to solve unit cells on one electrode and then compute the current density on the other electrode using interpolation. This halves the number of unit cells and so greatly increases speed when running the DIST model
  • SPEED Motor Tool

For skewed motors regions are now distinguished per section and per slice or if V-skewed
