CD-adapco Release New Engineering Software Update

Press Release
Thursday, February 28, 2013

CD-adapco release STAR-CCM+ v8.02, a major new version of its integrated solution for multidisciplinary engineering problems.

CD-adapco is the world's largest independent CFD focused CAE provider.

"The STAR-CCM+ v8 releases are specifically aimed at increasing engineering productivity, making the software even easier to use and interact with, and significantly reducing the time required to get a high-quality solution," said Senior VP Product Management Jean-Claude Ercolanelli. "STAR-CCM+ v8.02 is the first of our v8 releases to benefit from our investment in a dedicated User Experience Team, whose task is to dissect and improve every aspect of the software, resulting in more effective and more productive simulation engineers."

Usability related enhancements include:

  • Parts Based Meshing allows users to associate mesh definitions with geometric entities, resulting in greater control, better automation and reduced turnaround time.
  • New Surface Preparation greatly reduces the amount of time required to clean-up imported CAD geometries, particularly those that include large assemblies of components.
  • JTOpen integration has the potential to cut import times from hours to minutes for large complex CAD assemblies.
  • There are also a number of Graphic User Interface (GUI) enhancements.

    Performance related enhancements include:
  • Lagrangian and DEM dynamic load balancing improves runtimes for applications such as SCR devices, IC engines and chemical sprays by at least a factor of 2.5.
  • Improvements to the AMG algorithm dramatically decreases simulation time on high processor count clusters for large scale unsteady simulations such as underhood, aerodynamic, and aeroacoustic analyses.
  • Expanded coverage includes:
  • The STAR-Cast add-on is a new streamlined casting simulation process that places industrial strength simulation technology in the hands of foundrymen, casting designers and tool makers.
  • The Fluid Film Model can now be used with the Moving Reference Frame (MRF) model to simulate films on objects that move such as pumps and break-disks; and with the coupled solver, which is a key requirement for the aerospace industry. The model can also now be used to simulate icing and de-icing effects using a multi-component melting and solidification model.
  • The Eulerian multiphase capability is improved through the addition of interphase and intraphase reactions models, used for tackling problems in the chemical and process industries.
  • A new co-simulation capability through coupling with AMESIM, a 1D multi-domain simulation tool, enabling simulation possibilities for hydraulics, IC engines, electro-magnetic and fuel injection systems.
