STAR-CD the Most Used CFD Code in Automotive Industry
Posted Tue July 26, 2005 @08:33AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
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.”

News Air Flow Consulting has published their June 2005 newsletter which includes an article on AFC's fire-safety engineering using CFD tools.
The fire simulation with CFD (typically 500'000 to 3'000’000 grid cells) allows to model complex building geometries with escalators above the fire location, balconies or flow phenomena such as jet ventilators to redirect the smoke in a parking garage.

News TranscenData Europe has been selected to join Airbus UK, BAE SYSTEMS, Frazer-Nash Consultancy, Aircraft Research Association, QinetiQ and the Universities of Southampton and Swansea as part of the CAST 2 project. The group has been awarded a substantial research grant by the DTI as part of its environmentally friendly transport initiative. The grant will go towards the development of next-generation aerodynamic modelling tools for designing more fuel-efficient and quieter aircraft, vehicles and trains.

The CAST 2 project will see the development of more advanced engineering tools such as Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and Computational Aero Acoustics (CAA). These types of tools hold the key to more environmentally sound transport by helping to maximise the aerodynamic properties of new vehicle designs.
