The STAR-CAD Series has been created specifically to enable Design and Project engineers to undertake basic flow simulation, even if they are lacking experience in traditional Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis. The product continues to revolutionize flow simulation by maintaining operability whilst introducing additional capabilities and productivity enhancements.
Each of these products is embedded within your familiar 3D-CAD environment, so that the CFD solution becomes an integral part of the CAD model. Simulations can be set-up and run within the comfort of each CAD environment. Because of the full associativity with the geometry, any design changes made in response to simulation results are reflected in the solution almost immediately. Solutions are updated at the click of a button without additional user intervention. No other approach will get designers and engineers from a CAD model to an accurate CFD solution more quickly or more reliably!
STAR-CAD Series V4.02 is packed with new features that broaden the spectrum of solution possibilities, such as the addition of new boundary conditions and external thermal treatments. User productivity is enhanced by a new volume meshing strategy for assemblies, faster mesh generation and solver speeds, and improvements to the turbulence modeling that reduce grid sensitivity. The reporting of engineering quantities has been improved with the addition of HTML based reporting. Interactive, 3D results files can now be sent direct to your manager or client with a freeware visualization utility, enabling the fast and efficient communication of flow simulation data.
“Design Engineers need tools that have the required simulation capabilities, are robust, fast and accurate, intuitive and integrated within their design environment. I am confident that STAR-CAD Series V4.02 will enable our users to extract the highest value from our solutions,” said Jean-Claude Ercolanelli, CD-adapco’s Product Manager for the STAR-CAD Series. "The ability to shorten the product development cycle translates into dramatic savings for the bottom-line. STAR-CAD Series customers will benefit from better product performance in less time, with lower costs and less physical testing.”
As ever, the CD-adapco name can be relied upon to ensure extended CFD simulation capability as your product complexity increases. This is the full-spectrum CFD solution uniquely provided by CD-adapco.
