STAR-CCM+ Simulations of In-Situ Thermal Treatment of Oil-Shale
One of the many research areas at the University of Utah Institute for Clean and Secure Energy is to assist in the commercial utilization of the vast energy stored in domestic oil shale and oil sands resources. We are exploring in-situ thermal treatment technologies of oil shale development because of their potential for reducing environmental footprints. We are taking the novel approach of applying High Performance Computing (HPC) using STAR-CCM+ and Validation and Uncertainty Quantification (V/UQ) to perform Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) based simulations to quantitatively predict...
We often talk with our customers about their “grand challenges", trying to understand exactly what it is that keeps them up at night thinking: “if I could just _________, that would be a real game changer for my business!” Regardless of which industry they come from, their answers are often quite similar: The majority of these discussions relate to evaluating the performance of an entire system. An uncomfortable truth about modern engineering is that there really are no easy problems left to solve. In order to meet the demands of industry, it's no longer good enough to do "a bit of CFD" or "...
From CAD Data to E-coat Thickness: Learn the Special Knowledge to Do it with STAR-CCM+
Corrosion protection by E-coating is widely used in automotive industry, and simulation of this manufacturing process increases constantly because of the valuable information obtained in different phases of the development process of a car. Appropriate meshing strategies are necessary to meet the requirements to the simulations with respect to preparation speed and accuracy: In early design phase, it is recommended to use surface wrapper and remesher. When CAD data gets more precise at later stages, it becomes worth to invest in surface mesh preparation to obtain precise surface...
Virtual Manufacturing Supports Digital Product Development – Better Corrosion Protection by E-Coat Simulation in STAR-CCM+
With the recent progress in simulation methods for product development, the need for expensive test hardware, and therefore their availability, has been significantly reduced. This requires additional development and application of manufacturing simulation methods for virtual testing purposes. Early feedback based on manufacturing simulation results to the product design team will help ensure that manufacturing quality and cost requirements are met. STAR-CCM+ 8.02 provides an improved simulation process chain from CAD-data meshing to E-coat deposition including fill and drain behavior in...
Manufacturing Simulation for the Casting Industry with STAR-Cast
In manufacturing and product design, CFD is deployed for the design, validation, evaluation and optimization of the production process. The casting industry has adopted simulation to help with challenging castings, such as, to name just a few: designing the gating and the mold, minimizing necessary super heat, and finding the optimum pouring curve to reduce gas entrainment. It is with the aim of providing solutions for this whole range of casting applications that STAR-Cast was developed. With version 8.02, we will reveal a brand new STAR-Cast, now completely embedded within STAR-CCM+. STAR-...
Technology Review: Modeling & Simulation for Biomedical Device Design
Biomedical device design is facing increasing product complexity while prototype building and testing can take months. The inherent risk in new medical product development can be mitigated through a deeper understanding of the design properties and functions achieved through modeling and simulation. Modeling capabilities for the design of various devices from respiratory (inhalers), pacemakers, MIT/CT scanners, to cardiovascular and microfluidic devices will be discussed. The importance of Fluid Structure Interaction (FSI) modeling will also be addressed. The implicit coupling of STAR-CCM+...
Trends, Implications & Electronics Thermal Design Needs due to System Electrification
For many years we have seen increased computing capability via more powerful microprocessors in higher numbers in products; nearly all of our daily tasks involve some type of computing device. The electronics in these devices typically involve information processing, delivery and systems controls. More recently electrical power has been increasingly used for the primary drive functions of much larger systems. This electrification has accelerated in industries including automotive, aerospace and marine. Temperature is the key design constraint for both computing and power electronics even with...
Engine Assembly Thermal Simulation using the Cycle Average Tool
Modeling boundary conditions for thermal simulation of internal combustion engines entails convection heat transfer from the combustion flow path, crank case and head top oil combined with conduction heat transfer from sliding contact and friction between the piston assemblies, liners, valves, guides and intermittent contact of the seats. The time scale for an engine thermal analysis is much greater than the time for one engine cycle. Therefore, it is helpful to average the heat transfer characteristics for surfaces which see sliding contact mixed with convection states over one engine cycle...
Advanced Turbomachinery Simulation using STAR-CCM+
STAR-CCM+ provides a unique set of simulation capabilities, which allow for accurate and rapid simulation of turbomachines.
