The introduction of overset mesh to STAR-CCM+ is a game changing technology that makes the accurate simulation of relative motion between objects a straightforward task.Depicted here is the use of this capability to simulate the water entry of an Assault Amphibious Vehicle (AAV7).
Aeroacoustics
Simon Richards speaking at the STAR-American-Conference 2011
We compare battery performance simulations from a commercial lithium-ion battery modeling software package against manufacturer performance specifications and laboratory tests to assess model validity. A set of commercially manufactured spiral wound lithium-ion cells were electrochemically tested and then disassembled and physically characterized. The Battery Design Studio ® (BDS) software was then used to create a mathematical model of each battery, and discharge simulations at constant C-rates ranging from C/5 to 2C were compared against laboratory tests and manufacturer performance...

Prediction of cavitation dynamics in marine applications
The use of cavitation modeling within the maritime industry area is in a crucial state. The advances in the computer power, the understanding of the numeric’s and cavitation phenomena do make possible to bring these kinds of simulations into the daily use. The general goal within the marine industry is to have a numerical tool which can predict the accurate behavior of cavitating flow both in design stage and for problem solving situations. In this presentation results will be shown of cavitating flow obtained with STAR-CD, for a two-dimensional case (NACA 0015 profile) and for a three-...
Experimental Validation of STAR-CCM+ for Liquid Container Slosh Dynamics
The NASA Launch Services Program has funded several propellant slosh related projects over the years with the goal of obtaining experimental data to anchor CFD predictions. STAR-CCM+ is used to create a CFD model of water sloshing in an 8” diameter spherical tank. The predictions from this CFD slosh model are compared to experimental data to validate the results. The data compared include slosh natural frequency, damping rate and free surface topology. These important validations allow us to increase our confidence in STAR-CCM+ for use on NASA missions.
