CD-adapco CD-adapco announces the release of STAR-CD V4.04, marking the third major product release in a period of just two weeks: STAR-CD V4.04 joins the recently released STAR-CCM+ V2.10 and STAR-CAD Series V4.14.

According to VP of Product Management, Jean-Claude Ercolanelli, the release of new versions of all three major products is testament to CD-adapco’s Power of Integration:

“Integration is a common theme running through all of our products: the STAR-CAD Series integrates industrial strength flow and thermal technology into CAD and PLM environments; STAR-CCM+ offers a single integrated process from 3D-CAD geometry to the CFD solution; and STAR-CD provides an integrated platform for flow, thermal and stress analysis.”

“The release of new versions of all our products required an integrated effort across the whole of CD-adapco, and demonstrates commitment at every level towards delivering the best-in-class CAE technology for our users and partners.”

Since its first release 20 years ago, STAR-CD has established a reputation for versatility and is unrivalled in its ability to efficiently tackle problems involving multi-physics phenomena. More than just a CFD code, STAR-CD is an integrated CAE platform for performing powerful multi-physics simulations, including: combustion; multiphase flow; heat transfer; conjugate heat transfer; melting and solidification; and stress.

In STAR-CD V4.04 this reputation is further enhanced with the introduction of many new capabilities, including:

  • A new version of pro-STAR that utilizes an advanced Graphic User Interface and offers solid improvements in usability and speed.
  • Improved capabilities for melting and solidification, which is now integrated with the stress analysis capability, allowing the prediction of residual stresses in the solidified phase.
  • The introduction of new physical modeling capabilities including liquid film stripping.
  • A mesh morphing capability that simplifies moving mesh simulations, fluid-structure-interaction calculations and optimization studies.
  • Greater reliability and improved speed of the solver, resulting in significant decreases in run time.
  • Integration of the latest state-of-the-art STAR-CCM+ meshing technology including the class leading surface wrapper and polyhedral mesher.

STAR-CD V4.04 is available on request from CD-adapco’s User Services site or your local CD-adapco office.
