CD-adapco, the largest privately held CFD-focused CAE provider, announced today the release of STAR-CCM+ v8.06, the third release in 2013 of their flagship simulation tool.

This early example of the finite-volume-based STAR-CCM+ EM Field Solver shows proximity effects in a stranded conductor.
A water jacket cooled motor: STAR-CCM+ in combination with SPEED is an integrated toolset for virtual prototyping of electric machines which delivers the power of computational fluid dynamics and heat transfer simulation technology.
For years, I have seen the challenges faced by the product development teams in companies of various sizes across all industries. Amongst those challenges, two in paticular stand out: One is the ability to perform simulation earlier in the product development cycle and the other is focused on improving collaboration between the design and simulation teams. Addressing the latter of these has been difficult due to a "brick wall" that has always existed between the design and simulation teams due to a lack of interoperability between CAD and simulation software tools. Although software vendors have, over time, proposed various solutions to this problem, until now none have offered a scalable solution set that could address these issues elegantly for the broad range of simulation problems faced in industry. With the imminent arrival of bi-directional CAD Clients in STAR-CCM+ v8.06, all that is about to change forever.
This paper shows how two well established software programs can be used to determine the electrical machine performance and the temperature rise within the machine parts using a permanent magnet interior rotor synchronous machine as an example. Both software packages, STAR-CCM+ providing an engineering process code for solving problems involving fluid flow, conjugate heat transfer and solid stress and SPEED the specialized analysis tool for the design of electric machines such as motors, generators and alternators including the drive with inverters and their control, are developed by CD-...
A paint nozzle moves using a prescribed motion using overset mesh. Lagrangian droplets represent the paint spray, which then impinge on the fluid film, adding to its thickness which can then spread out over the panel surface using the Eulerian fluid film model

Tablet Coating Using DEM with Passive Scalars
Engineers in industries such as Energy, Chemical Process, and Life Sciences will benefit from the addition of passive scalars for the Lagrangian and DEM models. Passive scalars allow particles to carry additional information such as the thickness of a coating being sprayed onto the particles (via an Eulerian passive scalar), or the water content of particles being dried. Passive scalars enable you to determine the effectiveness of mixing processes where previously it would have been impossible to distinguish particles from each other, which in terms of the physics being modeled were otherwise...
