STAR-CD the Most Used CFD Code in Automotive Industry

News The 2005 Top20Auto survey ranks CD-adapco’s STAR-CD as the top CFD code in the Automotive industry. The survey, compiled by “Top500 Supercomputer Sites”, places STAR-CD convincingly ahead of rivals Fluent and Powerflow in terms of the number of installed gigaflops for each package. Using this criterion, STAR-CD also ranks as the fourth top automotive CAE application overall. The survey also notes that CFD is the fastest growing CAE application in the Automotive industry.

Richard Johns, CD-adapco’s Director for the Automotive Sector, is pleased but not surprised. “To have your leadership confirmed in an independent survey is always flattering, but the result comes as no great shock”, he said. “Our aim is not just to be the de facto industry leader, but to have the greatest impact upon the VPD process of our partners.”

Dennis Nagy, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at CD-adapco, sees increased dominance in the future, “We are the only CFD vendor to offer Full Spectrum Flow Simulation software and services. No other CFD solution provider can cope with the full range of flow simulations and VPD process situations required by the automotive industry. From individual CAD parts, to entire vehicle systems, STAR-CD can handle it”.
