CD-adapco is the world's largest independent CFD focused provider of engineering simulation software, support and services. We have over 30 years of experience in delivering industrial strength engineering simulation.
Daimler and CD-adapco are 80%-85% complete in the full integration of a simulation management system into a PLM environment that eases the challenge for a non-CAE expert to run simulations. This paper highlights the body-in-white analysis and how conduction and the CFD link together seamlessly. PLM/XML provides the foundation to drive the data across the whole process. STAR-CCM+ performs the analysis on both the CFD side and the solid conduction side. This report is based on a presentation given by Thomas Walker at PLM Road Map™ 2011, with added participation by Walter Bauer, and was prepared with funding support by CD-adapco.
