Print version Email story Tweet story
News In his keynote speech at the recent Gridgen User Group Meeting, Dr. Bill Clark, Director of the CD-adapco Engineering Software Business Unit, stated that some of CD-adapco's customers are running 400 million cell models currently and that he expects them to run one billion cell models by next year.

Dr. Clark attributed the dramatic increase in model size to the increasing use of HPC clusters for CFD simulation. However, he noted that there are some barriers to the advancement of flow simulation which must be overcome if CFD is to reach it's full potential.

News CD-adapco is pleased to announce the release of STAR-Design V4.04. STAR-Design’s intuitive user environment makes it the ideal tool for those engineers who are not Computational Fluid Dynamics specialists. Utilizing CD-adapco’s powerful CFD technology (including polyhedral meshing) means that ease-of-use does not compromise accuracy. STAR-Design’s 3D solid modeler and geometry import allows engineers who don’t use CAD to directly create and manage geometry for simulation.

In the design cycle: Specifically designed for use within the design cycle, STAR-Design has a number of features that enable quick but accurate “what-if” design evaluations on product performance.
