Venturi with air entrainment (VIASYS Healthcare) : Using STAR-CCM+, metrics of different designs can be evaluated to by predicting the mass of entrained air and pressure drop.
Modeling the flow through nasal passages to determine the required surgical procedure using STAR-CCM+ (model provided by Lionel Meister, University of Marseille)
With surging fuel prices and more people taking to the skies, aircraft companies have been forced to rethink their approach to the design of the next-generation aircraft. To reduce fuel consumption, increasingly lighter and more flexible composite structures are being introduced, and innovative, unconventional designs resulting in higher lift-to-drag ratios are on the table. With such radical changes to the structure and aerodynamic shape of aircraft, the use of high-fidelity computational aeroelasticity early in the design process will be essential to meet tomorrow’s design challenges.
Recent successes of both undergraduate and graduate students using STAR-CCM+ highlight the impact STAR-CCM+ is having at Brigham Young University’s Mechanical Engineering Department. In addition to their work on the PACE Formula 1 racing car described on the preceding pages, BYU has been using STAR-CCM+ on other projects. Magazine Dynamics 33 - Read more...
Imagine how much nerve it takes to drive a car at 220 mph (350 km/h)? How much more nerve would it take if you knew that the car was designed and built entirely by student engineers, where one component failure or a small amount of unpredicted positive lift could spell disaster?

Brant R. Savander, Maritime Research Associates, L.L.C. & Prashanth Shankara, CD-adapco This article details the design and development of an optimized propulsion system for the 43 m Global Response Cutter patrol boat by Westport Shipyard. The propulsion system was designed by Maritime Research Associates (MRA) with the propeller and struts built by Michigan Wheel Marine, and the rudders by Westport Shipyard. The propulsion system design effort was funded jointly by MTU Detroit Diesel and Westport Shipyard. Dynamics 33 - Read more...
Markus Anders, Stefan Holst, Jim Ippolito, Malcolm McGilp – CD-adapco Regulatory efficiency requirements for electric machines and the tremendous price rise in material costs of permanent magnets are two important motivators for analyzing the thermal performance of electric machines in greater detail. For a detailed, more accurate thermal simulation, a complete 3D-CAD model needs to be built and multiphase flow calculations are performed. A process where CD-adapco can now offer a more streamlined simulation approach is by combining SPEED and STAR-CCM+. Dynamics 33 - Read more...
In this report, the performance of the Standard Cirrus glider is simulated using STAR-CCM+. To calculate the important transitional boundary layer ow, the γ-Reθ transition model is used. The study is performed to test the quality of the transition model and to create a validated reference model of the glider’s performance in steady level flight. The validated model will in future studies be used to improve the performance and handling quality of the glider and serve as a reference model for other simulation tools. Dynamics 33 - Read more...
Fred Mendonça & Deborah Eppel, CD-adapco One of the greatest challenges facing the aerospace industry is improving the aeroacoustic noise generation of their products to meet today’s more and more stringent noise pollution standards. As flow-induced noise makes a significant contribution to the overall output decibels, it seems essential to understand how to optimize the aircraft design in order to minimize the flow-induced noise without impairing the general performance of the air-vehicle.

Prashanth Shankara, CD-adapco This article details results from the numerical simulations on the NASA Trapezoidal Wing geometry, focusing on the high lift prediction using the CD-adapco solver STAR-CCM+. Computations and validation were based on the guidelines and experimental data provided for the 1st AIAA High Lift Prediction Workshop (HiLiftPW-1) to assess the numerical prediction capability of STAR-CCM+ for high lift configurations.
