Applied CFD Education using STAR-CCM+
It is nice to finally have a CFD platform where a new student can pick it up, learn it and deliver a finished product with believable results – all within a 10 week, 3-credit-hour course. At Oregon Institute of Technology, we have begun teaching ‘Applied CFD using STAR-CCM+ as the platform’. Sixteen students (half graduate and half undergraduate students) took our course for the first time in the winter term of 2012. In the first half of the course, they learned the program and best practices of CFD. In the last five weeks, they selected and worked through their own individual projects from...
Thermal Cycle CFD Simulation of a Charge Air Cooler
Charged Air Cooler (CAC) used in heavy machinery and equipment is exposed to alternating heating and cooling even when the vehicle is not operational and at varying engine speeds which causes considerable thermal stress and fatigue. Hence, failure rate of CAC product is considerably high and the need to analyze the product computationally is of paramount importance. Current effort is to develop a simulation methodology to obtain temperature distribution of the Charged Air Cooler, which can then successfully mapped onto a structural model for a structural and fatigue analysis. Emphasis is...

Simulation Based Design Applied to Senior Design
The department of Aerospace Engineering at Iowa State University has revamped the senior design capstone project. With the increased power and efficiency of computational tools and the direct integration of CAD, we have developed a capstone project with a simulation-based design focus that enables our students to design a full size aircraft to fulfil a specific mission profile. In addition to the simulation, the students are also required to build, test and fly a demonstration model. The revised process utilizes a top down design paradigm which means that the students are developing and...

Undergraduate & Graduate Use of STAR-CCM+ at Brigham Young University
STAR-CCM+ continues to gain popularity in the Mechanical Engineering Department of Brigham Young University (BYU). This presentation will share success stories, both at the undergraduate and graduate level, as they were experienced by four professors at BYU. At the undergraduate level, STAR-CCM+ was used in an ‘Applications of Fluid Dynamics’ course to teach Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), in a ‘Computer-Aided Engineering Applications’ course to teach CAD-to-mesh-to-CFD and by Capstone Teams investigating methods to reduce drag on locomotives and to design a winglet for the Boeing 777. At...
