Presented at the STAR Global Conference 2012
Simulation and computational models are rapidly becoming essential predictive tools for a large number of industry segments. The overwhelming majority of 3D CAE models requires the usage of a computational grid whose characteristics strongly affect the quality of the predictions and finally the market competitiveness of the products.
CD-adapco spends a significant part of its resources in innovating the volume meshing offered in STAR-CCM+. A brief overview of the ongoing research projects in this area will be presented with focus on parallel and hexahedral meshing as paradigms for generation speed and mesh quality respectively.
