Press release date: October 31, 2011

NEW YORK and LONDON, -- CD-adapco, the world's largest independent CFD-focused provider of engineering simulation solutions announced today the release of STAR-CCM+ v6.06. STAR-CCM+ is CD-adapco's simulation solution for solving multidisciplinary engineering problems.

"Released three times a year, each new version of STAR-CCM+ is focused on improving customer satisfaction," says Senior VP of Product Management Jean-Claude Ercolanelli. "We set ourselves a very high standard in this regard and our success is confirmed by our users: in our annual 2011 customer survey, 97% of CD-adapco users said that they would recommend our software."

STAR-CCM+ v6.06 ensures higher throughput and offers:

1. FASTER turnaround times: support of parallel I/O file systems, new sparse solver for electrical solutions, quicker polyhedral meshing, and new CAD reading technology
2. BETTER application coverage: improved process for Li-ion batteries simulation, new physical models for Eulerian multiphase flow and LES combustion
3. WIDER multidisciplinary solution: simulation of electromagnetics and electrical fields, and import of SPEED models for flow and thermal analyses of electrical devices

Improvements to the User Environment
Optimizing License Resources: A new flexible licensing approach is adopted, meaning that users can take, reserve, or release licenses for add-on modules (such as Battery Simulation Module, DARS-CFD, JTOpen Reader, and CAD Exchange Reader) from within their working session.

New and Improved Tutorials: a selection of new tutorials is available to guide users through the use of newly implemented features, or those that have been enhanced.

Geometry Preparation and Surface Meshing
CAD Clients: Live Model Checker provides feedback of model validity during the setup process, checking for consistency and conflicts. Upfront flow and thermal simulations can also be run in parallel from within your CAD environment.

Geometry Import: New CAD Exchange readers deliver improved reliability and speed when reading native CAD parts and assemblies.

3D- CAD: Import 3D splines or sheet bodies that can be used as the basis for creating a solid body for analysis purposes.

Engineering Physics
SPEED Integration: Directly import models from CD-adapco's new electric machines tool and generate a 3D analysis-ready STAR-CCM+ model. Thermal fields can be transferred onto the imported geometry, allowing full flow and thermal analysis of the electrical device.

Electromagnetics: STAR-CCM+ has a new solver for Magnetic Vector Potential, which operates in stationary and transient mode and couples to electrical potential solver for electromagnetic problems. Solver can simulate both linear and non-Linear materials.

Sample Applications: Electric motors, Alternators, Generators, Transformers, etc.

Eulerian Multiphase: Building on existing features to provide a complete solution for multiphase analysis, the addition of a wall-boiling model enables analyses of sub-cooled liquid boiling. S-Gamma population balance model can predict particle or bubble size distribution.

Sample Applications:IC engine water jackets; Nuclear fuel rod cooling; Food and chemical processing

Liquid Film: the latest version completes the STAR-CCM+ liquid film capability, broadening its applicability and scope. An edge-stripping model automatically removes film and injects droplets when a sharp edge is reached. Energy transport is now possible within a liquid film.

Sample Applications:Vehicle soiling and Brake cooling

Battery Simulation Module: a pipeline process allows battery set up modifications to be automatically re-executed. STAR-CCM+ v6.06 also allows arbitrary polyhedral meshing for the battery cells and for creating a conformal mesh between posts, tabs, surrounding fluid, mountings, etc. A new sparse solver for electrical solutions is also included. Together these new features provide a significant speedup of solution times.

Materials: a user-defined equation of state for both gasses and liquids gives users full definition of fluid's behaviour in response to changes in pressure and temperature.

Combustion: a Thickened Flame Model for premixed LES combustion artificially thickens flames to allow the flame front to be resolved adequately. Eddy Dissipation Concept (EDC) model for DARS-CFD divides the computational domain into areas where reactions do and do not occur and improves the overall prediction of temperature and species for LES combustion.

Sample Applications: Gas turbine combustors, Flares

Performance
Parallel file I/O: takes advantage of parallel file systems such as Panasas, Lustre and GPFS file systems to greatly improve speed of sim file write. Performance is directly related to number of storage blades available.

Post-Processing
Separation and re-attachment lines: you can now create a derived part to identify areas where the flow has separated from the surface and where it re-attaches, which may be used to seed streamlines and constrained streamlines, etc.
