News CD-adapco is proud to announce the release of version 1.08 of STAR-CCM+, "the next generation CFD solution". Users will be able to benefit from the solver's very latest developments, including speedup and solution accuracy.

STAR-CCM+ is unique in the current CFD marketplace. The combination of CD-adapco’s polyhedral cell technology, an easy-to-use front-end and state-of-the-art object-oriented, client-server software, means STAR-CCM+ empowers Engineers to solve their flow and thermal problems like no other CFD code. Polyhedral cells have the synergistic properties of quick and easy meshing (even with the most complex geometries) showing significantly improved solution accuracy over tetrahedral methodologies, while using less memory.

New Software: SoftPredict Announces the COSILAB_Lib Plug-In
Posted Wed September 21, 2005 @07:27AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News SoftPredict, a subdibision of Rotexo GmbH & Co. KG, the leader and visioneer in reaction modeling, has announced a new module COSILAB_Lib which is an off-spring of the industry standard COSILAB.

SoftPredict’s COSILAB_Lib is a ready-to-use plug-in for user-written one-, two- or three-dimensional CFD codes in either the Fortran, the C or the C++ programming language. It handles arbitrarily complex gas-phase chemistry in flow simulations including combustion, exhaust gas after-treatment, and pollutant formation. The new software benefits from an easy-to-use graphical user-interface that - as in COSILAB - handles preprocessing of thermodynamic and molecular databases, and of reaction mechanisms -- all in the most popular and internationlly accepted data formats.

Application By John Purnell
Senior Engineer
CDI Marine Systems Development Division

CDI Marine Systems Development Division (CDIMSDD, formerly Band, Lavis, & Associates, Inc.) used computer simulation to design the lift fans and propellers for a proposed large air cushion vehicle (ACV) in a fraction of the time that would have been possible using prior conventional methods. The proposed ACV will be used in transporting cargo and passengers, and is designed to carry twice the payload of the present craft. CDIM-SDD was assigned the task of designing new propellers capable of delivering about twice the power of the present propulsion system. There was also a requirement to design new lift-air supply fans capable of developing additional pressure and flow to support twice the payload.
