CD-adapco Celebrates a Year of CAD-Embedded CFD in CATIA

News The European CATIA Forum, ECF2005, 4-6 October 2005, represents the first anniversary of the release of STAR-CAT5, CD-adapco's revolutionary CAD-embedded CFD product for CATIA V5. STAR-CAT5 was the first product to introduce CAD-embedded CFD to the CATIA community at the conference one year ago.

CD-adapco's CAD-embedded CFD range offers outstanding ease of use, and, for the first time, delivers industrial strength CFD to the Design and Product Engineering communities. With STAR-CAT5 the CFD functionality is provided from within the CATIA environment, and accessed as additional items from within CATIA's specification tree. This intuitive approach to CFD means that even novice users are able to quickly obtain industrial strength flow simulation results. Based on the technology behind the industry leading STAR-CD and STAR-CCM+, STAR-CAT5 is a gateway to the most comprehensive flow simulation tools in the world.

STAR-CAT5 uses CD-adapco's revolutionary polyhedral meshing technology, proven to be up to 10 times faster than traditional tetrahedral meshing techniques and delivering faster, more accurate solutions, at a fraction of the computational expense. Unlike the raft of recent imitations, STAR-CAT5 creates meshes specifically designed for flow simulation and is not based on CATIA's own meshing kernel which was designed for meshing structural finite element simulations.

CD-adapco launched CAD-embedded CFD in 2001 with the release of STAR-Works, a CAD-embedded CFD package for the SolidWorks community. Building on the success of this original product, CD-adapco's CAD-embedded products now include all of the major CAD systems, STAR-Pro/E for Pro-ENGINEER, STAR-NX for Unigraphics and STAR-CAT5 for CATIA V5.

CD-adapco's Vice President of Marketing & Business Development, Dennis Nagy, is confident that STAR-CAT5 is ahead of the competition. "CATIA V5-embedded CFD has been a proven reality from CD-adapco for almost a year now" he said. "Why would anyone want to wait for other vendors' continual previewing of unreleased products when they can get on with productive use of CFD within the CATIA V5 environment right now, including the proven unique speed and automation advantages of polyhedral meshing, using STAR-CAT5?"
