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.
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.

Justin Smothers, JSC Engineers Jon Thornham & Chris Thornham, FLO Cycling Prashanth S. Shankara, CD-adapco In the grand theater that is modern competitive sports, the equipment is as crucial as the competitor. The advent of cutting-edge engineering technologies has pushed the boundaries of competition far and beyond what one could have envisioned a decade ago. In this multi-billion dollar industry, to stay ahead of the competition, high-end engineering plays a critical role in improving equipment constantly. Dynamics 33 - Read more...
Geneviève Dutil, Lx R&D inc. & Titus Sgro, CD-adapco As anyone who has ever ridden a bicycle on a windy day will testify, aerodynamics play a big part in cycling. Perhaps more than any other sport, competitive cycling is dominated by aerodynamics, as cyclists, clad in aerodynamic clothing and helmets, are forced to adopt uncomfortable crouched position on their bikes, minimizing their frontal area and reducing their exposure to the oncoming air.
