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.
What is the common element in solving problems such as vortex induced vibrations, mixing in unconventional geometries, estimating separating efficiency of cyclones, refractory damage in sulfur recovery furnace or accurately calculating performance of pumps?
In issue Dynamics 37 we discuss how CFD shapes our world from from diapers to dental implants.
FS Dynamics sign long term million dollar deal to use CD-adapco CFD simulation software. New York and London. September 24, 2014 CD-adapco™, the largest privately held CFD focused provider of Computer Aided Engineering software, recently finalized a three-year contract, worth over €1M, with FS Dynamics ( ). Since it was founded 10 years ago, FS Dynamics has rapidly grown to become the leading supplier of CAE services in the Scandinavian region, focusing on the application of CFD and FEM technology to solve a wide range of technically-challenging industrial engineering...
An Introduction to Comprehensive Multiphase Modeling Capabilities
Increasingly, simulating systems rather than isolated components may be more realistically represented by not only a single multiphase modeling approach, but the use of several complementary multiphase models working together. Presenters demonstrate the wide variety of applications that can be solved using a multiphase toolset. Examples include, the build-up of ice on an aircraft wing, the demisting of a headlamp, the transport of rocks/aggregates, dropping a lifeboat into the sea or the spray painting of a car. Additional modeling capabilities using a single integrated environment such as...
Simulating Water Pumps and Hydro Turbines for Energy and Power
Companies involved with energy-production and power-generation appreciate that their machinery must be efficient, reliable, and durable. To achieve these goals and help ensure ever-higher levels of performance with turbomachinery, engineers continue to rely on and benefit from advances in engineering simulation software. In this webcast, you will see and hear about real application stories from Dr. Edward (Ed) Bennett pertaining to the design and analysis of water pumps and hydro turbines such as Francis, Kaplan, and Pelton turbines. Based on his work as VP of Fluids Engineering at Mechanical...
CD-adapco, the largest privately held CFD focused provider of Computer Aided Engineering software, today announced its new partnership with Ben Ainslie Racing. The America’s Cup team will be utilizing the CD-adapco simulation tool, STAR-CCM+® in the design of its racing boat. Ben Ainslie Racing team just announced its participation in the 35th America’s Cup taking place in 2017.
For predicting indoor thermal environments, Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) analysis is a candidate approach. The CFD analysis of steady phenomena is verified to serve as an effective prediction method through comparison analyses between actual measurements and analysis results. Environment prediction in transient phenomena is considered necessary to realize more detailed thermal environment design. Transient CFD analysis requires coupled analysis of wall heat conduction, long-wavelength radiation, and convection, considering wall heat capacity. It is possible even with the present...
This talk will focus on the five steps necessary to drive more product innovation through CAE. These steps include: Parametric creation of CAx models Process automation Implementing scalable computation Driving efficient design exploration Evaluating optimal design sensitivity and robustness These steps will be illustrated through the use of the Optimate and HEEDS product lines.
