Presented at the STAR South East Asian Conference 2013
Singapore is subjected to occasionally sudden and unpredictable rain throughout the year. Addition of architectural elements such as awnings, overhangs and louvers, is a commonly adopted method in reducing the penetration of rain into building spaces. Well designed architectural elements can provide comfort, convenience for the occupants of the building, and at the same time, maximize the use of building outdoor spaces. However, the designs of these architectural elements are often based on prediction. This could be inaccurate and might result in further corrective measures being implemented...
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is an effective tool to tackle various types of building systems. For the master planning of a city, CFD can be used to study the airflow around buildings to improve pedestrian wind comfort. From the study, design optimization works can be done on improving the building orientation and the massing of the building. Building occupants’ thermal comfort can then be further improved with natural ventilation studies on the internal layout in the building. Other than natural ventilation simulations, CFD can also be used as a tool to optimize designs for mechanical...
An overview of the challenges of FSI will be presented along with the capabilities available in STAR-CCM+ to meet those challenges. The topics will include: a) Data mapping techniques b) Protocols and formats for exchanging data between CFD and CSM codes c) Coupling methods for stability and accuracy d) Techniques for dynamic fluid mesh evolution e) Validation of FSI results A technical overview under each of these topics will be provided. A range of examples which demonstrate the STAR-CCM+ FSI capabilities and validate the accuracy will be shown. The examples span analytical and experimental...
Presentation of the wide spectrum of methods available in commercial CFD software; from steady-state stochastic/correlation models to fully transient resolution of the flow and acoustics features using compressible CFD and LES-based turbulence modeling. We include case studies from many engineering sectors like automotive, aerospace, marine and power generation, finally focusing on the study of a generic side-view mirror, intended for validation of the flow mechanisms, and data analysis using temporal and spatial Fourier analysis aimed at understanding the separable excitations of the...
This presentation will give academics an opportunity to learn more about the CD-adapco Global Academic Program which provides software, training, support, teaching modules and more to our global academic community. Working closely with hundreds of leading academic institutions around the world to introduce STAR-CCM+ into the classroom, labs, capstone design and student competition teams we are helping to prepare students for a successful engineering career in industry.
From drill face to refinery, STAR-CCM+ is used routinely in the design of equipment, to assure production, troubleshoot problems, and to reduce maintenance costs and project risks. This talk will review three application areas: Gravel packing and fluidization processes Subsea equipment Separation equipment Through the case studies we will discuss the differing roles and requirements for simulation, modeling techniques used, and conclusions made. Finally, the changing role of simulation will be addressed.
You will learn how to perform complex CAD and mesh operations like Boolean interactions, hole filling, surface wrapping and normal meshing processes such that they can be replayed automatically later when CAD or settings are changed. Meshing is moving from regions up into parts and this will be explained and demonstrated.
You will be shown how to use this new feature to do sensitivity studies of the effect of various parameters on a model and how it provides insights into model features that can be improved, including automatically morphing the mesh to create an improved geometry.
This moving mesh feature in STAR-CCM+ adds an almost universal moving mesh feature and thus great flexibility to CFD models. You will be shown how easy it is to use, and some novel applications.
