STAR-CCM+® cuts geometry preparation and meshing time down from weeks (or even months) to hours. Shown is a wrapped surface of a large cargo ship for DFBI simulation.
Polyhedral cell mesh of a large cargo ship with anisotropic volume refinement
Dynamic Fluid-Body Interaction (DFBI) refers to the interaction between a body and the fluid flow surrounding it and the resulting body motion due to external and flow-induced forces.Shown here is a DFBI analysis of a cargo ship in heavy seas.
Hydrodynamic and aerodynamic analysis of a luxury motor boat from Azimut-Benneti.
Polyhedral mesh and solution generated with STAR-CCM+ on of a luxury motor boat from Azimut-Benneti.
CD-adapco renews Medical Device Innovation Consortium (MDIC) membership New York and London. July 29, 2014 CD-adapco™, the largest privately held CFD focused provider of Computer Aided Engineering software, today announced its renewed membership with the Medical Device Innovation Consortium (MDIC), the first public-private partnership focused exclusively on the unique needs of the medical device community. MDIC made tremendous progress in the first year by bringing together the key players in the field of Computational Modeling and Simulation (CM&S). This momentum will drive...
Computer software accelerates design of next generation advanced automotive batteries New York and London. July 28, 2014 CD-adapco today announced the successful completion of its development project targeting the automotive and lithium ion battery industries, enabling faster design and development of advanced electric drive vehicle power systems. This project, which began in August 2011, is co-funded by the Vehicle Technologies Office in the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and managed by DOE’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). This project is part of the competitive Computer Aided...
Simulation showing the mesh on the complex folded fin heat sink of an Air Transport Rack (ATR).This is a nice example of how the thin mesher, a prism-type volume meshing capability for solids, is a key enabler for the electronics industry.
I ran across an article the other day that made me, ahem... perk up. CFD was used to simulate roasting coffee beans! Coffee is something I know AND care about. But why would CFD be needed for something as "non-techie" as roasting beans? Like everything else under the sun, it comes down to plain ol' chemistry. The final flavor profile of the bean will vary widely based on temperature and roast time.
I spent most of my career in industry running free, open source CFD tools and it was not until I started using STAR-CCM+ ® a few years back that it finally dawned on me : free simulation software often comes with a hefty price tag. I understand that this may sound like a contradiction in terms, after all it doesn’t get any cheaper than downloading a code with one click of a mouse and having the freedom to use, modify and share it without spending a dime. But there is a far- reaching hidden cost that must be factored in when considering the true value of your simulation software: your time spent making it work. And how much is that time worth?
