The world's most comprehensive engineering simulation inside a single integrated package
Much more than just a CFD solver, STAR-CCM+ is an entire engineering process for solving problems involving flow (of fluids or solids), heat transfer and stress.
  • CD-adapco, a global provider of multidisciplinary engineering simulation and design exploration software, today announced the release of STAR-CCM+® v11.02, its industry-leading engineering simulation solution. This release delivers new modeling capabilities and brings productivity and usability enhancements that forward the company’s mission to help customers discover better designs, faster.
  • Data Focus is a unique visualization technique to explore and interrogate results interactively. Data Focus provides a live and interactive link between quantitative numerical data in plots and qualitative visual data in scenes. This link between quantitative and qualitative analysis allows the user to easily and effectively gain insight into the key influences on product performance.
  • With STAR-CCM+ v11.02, you can now combine two or more materials when simulating extrusions, enabling the analysis of more complex products targeted to very specific applications. For example, multi-luminal medical tubing has very narrow tolerances and needs to meet the highest quality standards. Consequently, it’s critical to understand how design changes to the die profile or variations in feedstock properties can impact end product quality.
  • Local surface remeshing allows for remeshing only selected areas when changing mesh parameters or performing design changes, reducing surface mesh generation time up to an order of magnitude and a key enabler of efficient design space exploration.
  • Until the release of STAR-CCM+ v11.02, composite particles were needed when modelling anything cylindrical and, to get a realistic representation, this required a large number of spheres.With the introduction of cylindrical particles in v11.02, users will experience increased accuracy and reduced computational time, a rare win-win situation in simulation.

STAR-CCM+ is unrivalled in its ability to tackle problems involving multi-physics and complex geometries. STAR-CCM+ has an established reputation for producing high-quality results in a single code with minimum user effort.

Designed to fit easily within your existing engineering process, STAR-CCM+ helps you to entirely automate your simulation workflow and perform iterative design studies with minimal user interaction.

The net result of this is that engineers get to spend more time actually analyzing engineering data and less time preparing and setting up simulations.
