Dental Cement Simulation
Virtual prototyping using STAR-CCM+® of a complete implant, cement and crown system.
DFBI CFD simulation of boat bouncing off harbor wall
The boat is reacting to the buoyancy forces due to the water, gravity, two catenaries , and most importantly the contact coupling model which prevents it from passing through the harbor wall.
One of the great things about working for CD-adapco is that I get to see a lot of cool animations that illustrate the exciting capabilities that are coming soon in STAR-CCM+. The frustrating part is that usually I can’t share these with you until just before the new feature is released. Which is why today I’m excited to show you two of my favorites, which I find myself watching over and over again. Both videos illustrate the new contact model for the DFBI (Dynamic Fluid Body Interaction) solver in STAR-CCM+ v9.04, which allows you to directly model contact and collisions between moving bodies and boundaries.
DFBI CFD simulation of ball valve with contact and collision
DFBI CFD simulation of ball valve, using contact and collision modeling
STAR-CCM+® used to better understand the challenges of running engineering simulations on the clusters of tomorrow. New York and London. June 11, 2014 CD-adapco™, the largest privately held CFD focused provider of Computer Aided Engineering software, announced today a long term collaboration project with the High Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS) and SICOS BW. The aim of this ongoing project is to benchmark, profile and ensure the best STAR-CCM+® performance and scalability possible on petascale computing systems. STAR-CCM+® will initially be run on the 1.045 PetaFlop (113,000...

80% of the top teams in the 2014 FSAE Michigan Competition used STAR-CCM+
Understanding Fluidization: Two Approaches, Eulerian and Lagrangian
Fluidization is a common phenomenon within the chemical process and pharmaceutical industries. It is the process by which particles under certain conditions are made to behave like fluid. This phenomenon is found in fluidized bed reactors, fluidized combustors, catalytic cracking and tablet coating. Fluidization is a complex phenomenon to understand, visualize and perform experimental measurements. The design, operation and optimization of equipment using fluidization can indeed be difficult. A combination of observation, measurement and simulation can overcome and achieve this goal. This...
Many of us spend long hours (or what feels like long hours) in front of our STAR-CCM+ product interface and naturally, the question comes to mind – “How can I make things easier?” After all, as engineers, we are almost compelled to find elegant solutions, so most of us would leap at the opportunity to reduce time consuming interactions with the software. As luck would have it, STAR-CCM+ v9.04 is packed with a range of new time-saving features that are specifically designed to make your life easier.
The Role of Computational Fluid Dynamic & Aeroacoustic Simulations in Reducing the Noise of a Forward-Curved Blade Radial Fan
The noise of radial fans with Forward-Curved (FC) blades, which are used in the automotive industry as well as HVAC applications, is associated with a dominant tonal noise that stems from the interaction between the unsteady flow leaving the impeller passages and the volute tongue (cut-off). Reducing the tonal noise in FC fans is a challenging task, considering the fact that the optimum operation of this type of fan is completely dependent on employing a properly designed scroll-housing. Performing CFD simulations not only helps us to understand the flow characteristics of this type of fan,...
