CD-adapco One of the fundamental problems of CFD (computational fluid dynamics) is that skill and experience are needed to use it effectively. It is all too easy for the inexperienced to set up a non-physical calculation that produces an erroneous result. The need to simplify or "de-skill" the process is clear. However, previous attempts that relied on reducing the CFD functionality have been flawed by fact that even simple flows require sophisticated meshing and physical modeling tools.

The CD adapco Group's answer has been to develop a "plug-in" for their CFD code STAR-CD, called STAR-Design, that provides an alternative path through the full STAR-CD system. It enables simple incompressible/compressible, laminar/turbulent flow and heat transfer cases to be set up and run with unprecedented ease, speed and accuracy.
