Temperature distribution analysis of a module of 84 cells: 42 cells connected in series, and each row is connected in parallel. Liquid cooled plate are lateraly postionned on those rows (Image courtesy of ASCS, Stuttgart and Behr)
A 6 cells module was analyzed in STAR-CCM+. Prismatic wound cells were used and the ohmic heating was solved in the cells connectors. This image shows the temperature distribution on the pack and on the air flow streamlines.
STAR-CCM+’s CAD clients offer the chance to leverage advanced capabilities from within your familiar CAD and PLM environment. Using the Client-Server approach, a user can visualize results and underlying CAD geometry as the solver is executing on the cluster.
To reflect the distributed nature of the modern project team, STAR-CCM+ is written using a client-server architecture. The server performs the numerical calculation while the client is used to control and visualize it. Client-server architecture allows for visualizing results as they are generated remotely on an HPC cluster.
Using the 3D-CAD modeler in STAR-CCM+, users have the ability to build geometries from scratch, or import and edit existing geometries. All parts for the motorcycle shown were created using the 3D-CAD modeler in STAR-CCM+.
3D-CAD, a powerful and fully parametric 3D feature-based modeler in STAR-CCM+, is designed around the needs of engineering analysis, bridging the gap between CAD and CAE. Shown here is a s ports car geometry created with 3D-CAD modeler in STAR-CCM+.
