CD-adapco Adds Realism to Simulation in STAR-CCM+ v9.02
Press release date: February 26, 2014
NEW YORK and LONDON -- CD-adapco(TM), the largest privately held CFD-focused provider of Computer Aided Engineering software, today announced the release of STAR-CCM+(R) v9.02, the latest major release of its flagship simulation tool. The company focused on increasing users productivity and simulation turnaround time, as well as a range of new application areas while making simulation more realistic for customers.
"Since engineering simulation is a results-based discipline, in STAR-CCM+ v9.02 we enhanced our workflow capabilities and the speed and scalability of our solvers. This leads to greater throughput and ensures the product development process is fed with a constant and accurate stream of simulation data," said Senior VP of Product Management, Jean-Claude Ercolanelli. "All aspects of our v9 release cycle will stay focused on adding realism to the simulations, and driving optimal results for customers in a shortened amount of time."
This new version brings features that add realism to the design process, enhance user workflows, increase throughput and improve accuracy. New features such as the volume rendering capability allows engineers to "see inside" a flow-field for the first time; the adjoint solver broadens applicability and ease-of-use with the tumble and swirl cost function; and the Dispersed Multiphase model helps accomplish the goal of greater adoption of realistic use of simulation. The new features and their range of benefits are discussed in full detail on the company website( http://www.cd-adapco.com ) (www.cd-adapco.com) and blog( http://www.cd-adapco.com/blog ) (http://www.cd-adapco.com/blog).
CD-adapco will present STAR-CCM+ v9.02 at its STAR Global Conference 2014( http://www.star-global-conference.com ) (www.star-global-conference.com) in Vienna on March 17-19. This year's event will host over 115 simulation experts from around the world, with a company keynote address from Jean-Claude Ercolanelli on the full product roadmap for STAR-CCM+ v9. CD-adapco development staff and industry experts will be on hand to showcase and demonstrate all aspects of the new release.
