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.
STAR-CCM+ and FieldView have been used, through an extract based post-processing workflow, to analyze a very large transient simulation case. This method not only allowed to monitor simulation results over time, such as the maximum temperature of thousands of car parts and their comparison with the critical temperature of each material. But also to investigate transient phenomena interactively, in order to gain better understanding. To our knowledge, this work is unprecedented in the automotive industry.
