In June 2008 we released STAR-CCM+ V3.04, followed by V3.06 in October. Central to both
releases was the introduction of a new capability for “Dynamic Fluid-Body Interaction”.
Unlike traditional CFD software, which is typically limited to simulating the motion of a body
along some prescribed path, the STAR-CCM+ DFBI model enables engineers to easily
simulate the fluid-induced movement of a body, for everything from a tanker listing under
heavy seas to an aerodynamic body tumbling in free fall.
