News CD-adapco, the only CAE provider to deliver CAD-embedded flow and thermal solutions for all four major CAD packages (STAR-CAD Series), today announce an exciting new development in CAD for simulation. CD-adapco’s Best Practice Guidelines on CAD for Simulation directs users on how to use CAD to optimize their flow and thermal simulation.

This initiative is consistent with CD-adapco’s goal of transferring their industry leading CAE know-how and expertise to their partners.

The CAD or PLM tool is at the backbone of product design process, and with the STAR-CAD Series, can be utilized to quantify and optimize a design’s flow and thermal performance. By making best use of the CAD tool’s functionality, significant improvements in simulation time can be achieved, allowing Designers to run more “what-if” studies and further improve product performance.

STAR-CAD Series Product Manager, Jean-Claude Ercolanelli, recognizes the importance of these documents. “CD-adapco are committed to sharing their expertise with their partners, to ensure that engineers fully leverage flow and thermal simulation. A few simple guidelines on how best to use the CAD tool to focus the simulation on important features can make a significant impact on model turnaround time and productivity.” He also recognizes their synergy with features in the latest release of the STAR-CAD, “In combination with the new automatic model checker in STAR-CAD Series V4.10, CD-adapco now offers the most robust CAD-embedded process on the market.”

The Best Practice Guidelines use the STAR-CAD Series to demonstrate hints and tips, but they are equally applicable to any simulation process. The guides are available for all four major CAD packages – SolidWorks, CATIA V5, Pro/ENGINEER and Unigraphics NX..
