Fred Mendonça & Prashanth Shankara - CD-adapco Numerical Simulation of Turbomachinery flows are among the most complex computations performed in the world of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). CFD applied to Turbomachinery has come a long way from the inviscid 2D blade-toblade methods of the 1960’s and recent developments have ensured that numerical simulation plays a major role in turbomachinery design.

James Clement, Fred Mendonça - CD-adapco The NASA C3X internally cooled turbine blade is a well documented case for validation of Conjugate Heat Transfer (CHT). The following analysis demonstrates two key features of STAR-CCM+: multi-domain polyhedral meshing, which automatically builds continuous meshes between the solid, external and internal flow volumes, and transition modeling, which enhances the predicted heat transfer distribution, especially on the blade suction side.

Dr. Richard Johns - CD-adapco Although recovery of exhaust gas energy using turbochargers was first applied nearly 100 years ago and has been in widespread use in the heavy-duty diesel market ever since, it is only in recent years that turbocharging has spread to mass production vehicles in smaller engines. The phenomenal market growth, first in passenger car diesel engines and more recently in downsized gasoline engines, has been driven largely by the efficiency gains, and hence CO2 benefits, that can be realized. Plus, Formula 1 will be returning to turbocharging for the 2014 season...
Thomas Lauer - Vienna University of Technology, Austria The development of internal combustion engines with lower emissions and fuel consumption requires an early knowledge of the combustion mechanisms. Therefore, a method was developed at the Institute for Powertrains and Automotive Technology at the Vienna University of Technology that allows the prediction of the combustion stability based on simulations with STAR-CD.

Fred Mendonça & Deborah Eppel - CD-adapco With the transport industry facing a continuing demand from customers and regulators to improve the aeroacoustic and vibroacoustics performance of their products, reducing flow-induced noise has become more relevant than ever. Traditional Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI) CFD coupled methods have been judged too time consuming, technically challenging and/or computationally expensive to lend themselves to production level aeroacoustics analyses. However, by developing and commercializing a new fluid-structure integrated capability for...
Dr. Gerald Seider - InDesA InDesA is an engineering consultancy and services company with specialization on complex fluid flow and heat transfer simulation and analysis for industrial applications. Although the history of InDesA is still young, our leading engineers look back at 20 years of experience in the field of automotive and power train development. Besides we have developed simulation techniques for other competence fields like general aerospace, marine, energy and for the environmental sector. Dynamics 32 - Read more...
Sergei Shulepov - Philips, Netherlands Philips Applied Technologies assists the product divisions within Philips in development of new, and optimization of existing industrial processes and products. A number of competences at Philips Applied Technologies heavily rely upon high‑end, multi‑physics computational software. In problems related to thermo‑fluid behavior, (micro) fluidics, phase transitions, and multiphysics in general, CD‑adapco software is used. In this article, as an example of application of CD‑adapco solutions within Philips, modeling of ultra‑high pressure lamps (UHP) is...
Stephen Ferguson - CD-adapco STAR-CCM+ is a “no-compromise” solution for modeling problems in electronic cooling, allowing you to account for the influence of multiple length scales when performing cooling scenarios. However, with length scales in a typical problem scaling 11 orders of magnitude (from transistors a 10-9m to datacenters at 102m), it is neither sensible nor prudent to include them all in a single model.

Ruben Bons - CD-adapco STAR-CCM+ is one of numerous software tools that can be used for electronics thermal management simulations. Even if we narrow our focus to only 3D CFD simulation software, there still are quite a few. And I think it is fair to say that on the whole the tools do a good job. Inevitably this leads us to ask why companies use STAR-CCM+ for electronics thermal management analyses instead of any one of the others. Electronics Special Report - Read more...
Tobias Linke, University of Hannover. Transverse flows from lateral water discharges into waterways, for example those caused by storm water outfalls, may cause passing ships to drift. In order to provide traffic safety, such effects need to be restricted so that outfall structures create well-balanced flow fields of low intensity. Marine Special Report: Read more...
