CD-adapco Accelerates CAE with STAR-CCM+ v7.06


NEW YORK and LONDON, Nov. 14 – CD-adapco is proud to announce the release of STAR-CCM+ v7.06, the latest version of its multidisciplinary engineering simulation software tool. As the third release in 2012, STAR-CCM+ v7.06 introduces a number of enhancements and new feature that have the specific aim of helping CD-adapco customers: shorten their product development schedules; create more reliable and better quality products; and to gain additional insight into their product behavior and performance.

"STAR-CCM+ v7.06, illustrates our continued commitment to making our customers even more successful through engineering simulation," said Jean-Claude Ercolanelli, Senior VP of Product Management.

Accelerate Your Product Development

In order to play a role in product development, simulation results need to be supplied on time, every-time.

With this is mind, STAR-CCM+ v7.06 is specifically designed to allow customers to get meaningful simulation results faster than ever before:

The Continuity Convergence Accelerator (CCA) increases the speed of convergence for the coupled server by up to 400%, delivering increased simulation throughput, and demonstrating our continued investment in innovative coupled solver technology.

The STAR-CCM+ CAD-Clients now include associative geometry transfer to STAR-CCM+ with a single click and also maintain the naming between the CAD and CAE models. The new feature facilitates rapid design space exploration with "one-click" design updates.

The new Defeaturing capabilities in 3D-CAD allow users to simplify imported CAD models by removing unnecessary fillets, chamfers and holes, or geometrical details.

Improve Your Product Quality and Reliability

Improving product quality is a strategic objective of every company involved in product design or manufacture.

STAR-CCM+ v7.06 delivers more accurate and realistic simulation of droplets with the addition of a Droplet Collision and Coalescence model to our Lagrangian Multiphase capability. The new model is useful when simulating dense or multiple streams that interact with each other.

A new Fluid Film Boiling capability is an industry-first and it enables simulation of liquid films coming in contact with very hot surfaces. This capability is a critical requirement for the simulation of Selective Catalytic Reduction in Automotive and Chemical Process Industry applications.

As part of an ongoing effort to provide a complete icing & de-icing capability, STAR-CCM+ v7.06 also introduces a Fluid Film Melting & Solidification model, which allows fluid films to form, move, freeze and melt. In the aerospace industry, the model can be used to predict ice accretion and melting on wings. For automotive applications, the model can be used to predict the freezing of films on windshields and defrost/deice simulation.

This version also features a unique 3D electrochemistry model for simulating the electrochemical field at a micro-structural level of a Lithium-Ion battery cell.

Better Insight into Product Performance

The ability to communicate engineering information, while engaging with an increasingly non-specialist audience, is a key skill for any CAE engineer.

“Effective communication of complex engineering simulation data is a key part of this process,” said Ercolanelli.

One of CD-adapco’s ongoing aims is to make its solution easier to learn, easier to remember and easier to work with on a daily basis. STAR-CCM+ v7.06 includes a range of user experience improvements to facilitate its operation and the analysis of the results: new load simulation dialogue, bounded/slider values, flexible export, color bar formatting and table auto-export, slider control for cross section visualization, reporting and monitoring on the fly.

STAR-CCM+ v7.06 is available now for download from CD-adapco’s customer support portal “Steve” (www.cd-adapco.com/steve).
