CD-Adapco Star CCM+ v4.20.006 Windows x64,Linux x86/x64 | 2.79 GB
STAR-CCM+ v8 release 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
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.
