The simulation solution of choice for Internal Combustion Engine development
CD-adapco has been actively involved with in-cylinder analysis from its inception and there are many engines in production around the world today that have benefitted from detailed analysis using STAR-CD and es-ice. These range from the smallest motorcycle through car and truck engines to the largest stationary and marine engines.
  • The latest version of STAR-CD features significant enhancements for combustion modeling as well as usability improvements to deliver accurate in-cylinder solutions

  • Prediction of cavitation dynamics in marine applications

    The use of cavitation modeling within the maritime industry area is in a crucial state. The advances in the computer power, the understanding of the numeric’s and cavitation phenomena do make possible to bring these kinds of simulations into the daily use. The general goal within the marine...

Designers of modern Internal Combustion engines face huge challenges to deliver power units which satisfy legislation and have competitive economy, performance and manufacturing cost. In particular, technology advances in fuel injection systems, alternative fuels, combustion systems, multi-fuel operation, downsizing and engine management coupled to ever shorter engine development timescales dictate that analysis is used widely to deliver optimum solutions. 

Although CFD analysis of in-cylinder flow and combustion has been established for over 30 years, the demands for increasing accuracy, flexibility, speed of turnaround and closer integration of analysis into engine development programs have never been greater.

To keep pace with developments in engine technology, CD-adapco is continually developing the software to add new capabilities, functionality and the speed and ease with which powertrain engineers can execute projects.
