STAR-Works Reviewed
Posted Tue August 20, 2002 @09:27AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
CD-adapco CADSERVER has posted a review of the STAR-Works package from the CD Adapco Group.

As the name implies, STAR-Works combines the best in class features of STAR-CD and SolidWorks. It aims to meet the demand of engineers for a single CAD and CFD solution to speed product development, cut costs and improve product quality.

CD Adapco has made some advances since I last saw StarCD, but in all honesty, it still has a long way to go before it will see the majority of SolidWorks users becoming interested. But perhaps this is isn't there real aim. At present, Star-Works is a fantastic way for an analyst to take SolidWorks data, and prepare it for use within StarCD.

New Software: ICEM Announces Cart3D Flow Solver
Posted Mon August 12, 2002 @04:53PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News ICEM CFD, a subsidiary of ANSYS, has announced that they will release a commercial version of CART3D. ICEM recently acquired distribution rights to the NASA Ames CART3D program for the aerospace, automotive, turbo machinery, electronics/electromagnetics and process industries.

Cart3D is a high-fidelity inviscid analysis package for conceptual and preliminary aerodynamic design. The program uses adaptively refined Cartesian grids to discretize the space surrounding a geometry and cuts the geometry out of the set of "cut-cells" which actually intersect the boundary.

The CART3D program was recently named "Software of the Year" by NASA.
