The STAR-CAD Series is specifically created to enable Design and Professional engineers to undertake all CFD analyses directly within their company’s chosen CAD environment. Using the power of associativity, any design change made in response to the results of the simulation, is reflected almost immediately in the CFD solution. Solutions are updated at the click of a button without additional user intervention.
Maintaining a focus on matching customers’ expectations and responding to their requests, CD-adapco has ensured that the STAR-CAD Series are now also available on native Windows 64bit platforms under Windows XP, allowing interaction with the 64bit native versions of the CAD and PLM environments and providing users with the ability to run even larger models. The ModelChecker feature introduced in the previous release is improved with the addition of a synchronisation mode that allows checking very large models in an efficient manner. As well as supporting the latest CAD and PLM versions, the STAR-CAD Series is powered by CD-adapco’s latest solver technology: STAR-CCM+ V2.08.
“I want our customers to benefit from the most innovative and productive solutions on the market, and this can only be achieved by attentively listening to their requirements” says Jean-Claude Ercolanelli, Product Manager of STAR-CAD Series and STAR-CCM+. “There is a clear and sound demand from our end-users, to deliver even more of CD-adapco’s powerful and effective technology within their familiar design environment. This means that the STAR-CAD Series product line is, and will continue to get, even closer to our next generation software solution STAR-CCM+. Watch this space!”
