STAR-CCM+ v10.06: CD-adapco Introduces Computational Rheology and Continues to Expand Footprint in the CAE Market


New Release Significantly Expands STAR-CCM+ Application Coverage


NEW YORK, NY and LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - October 28, 2015) - CD-adapco, the largest privately held CFD-focused provider of Computer Aided Engineering software, today announced the release of STAR-CCM+┬« v10.06, its flagship engineering simulation solution. This release features the introduction of Computational Rheology, a new engineering discipline in STAR-CCM+, and forwards the company's mission to facilitate innovation through Multidisciplinary Design Exploration (MDX) to help customers discover better designs, faster.


Computational Rheology further expands the multidisciplinary scope of STAR-CCM+ and targets problems where viscous and viscoelastic effects are dominant. The types of applications that are now possible to solve are flow in static mixers (bread dough, food.), flow into containers (toothpaste, shampoo.), pumping slurries with significant heat generation, as well as extrusions (foam rubber insulation for door seals, rubber tires...) and material processing. The capability is built on the same Finite Element (FE) framework as Computational Solid Mechanics delivered in v10.04.


"Computational Rheology allows our customers to find solutions for a whole new category of applications ranging from extrusions to polymer and material processing, and they will benefit from this new technology without requiring an additional license," said Jean-Claude Ercolanelli, Senior VP of Product Management, CD-adapco, "Of course, this new capability is accessible from their familiar and single STAR-CCM+ user interface, leveraging all other STAR-CCM+ features from the geometry to the solution."


In addition to Computational Rheology, STAR-CCM+ v10.06 brings further important enhancements to ensure our customers remain competitive and effective in their marketplace:




With v10.06, engineers are able to perform two-way fluid-structure coupling from within STAR-CCM+. This tight coupling, easily accessed and deployed from the single user interface in STAR-CCM+, leads to an improved accuracy and ultimately results in better designed products and reduced product failure. Read more


This new version also features the ability to compute thermal stress and strains resulting from thermal loads obtained in STAR-CCM+.




STAR-CCM+ v10.06 brings a new and completely revamped interface for the Manual Surface Repair Tool, increasing usability for both the experienced and new user and helping them save significant engineering time. The new interface provides an easier to use and simpler environment for performing manual repair of triangulated surfaces. Experienced users will find that preparing models requires less clicks and makes everything easier to identify and locate. New users will find the new interface easy to navigate and learn. Read more


More and more customers are looking to perform simulations on increasingly complex and large assemblies, so it is critical that users can effectively manage their components and workflow. STAR-CCM+ v10.06 brings significant filter improvements, making filtering and selecting of operations, displayers and parts simpler and more intuitive. Read more




Parts-based Interface is a unique capability in v10.06 offering a distinct improvement to performance and scalability using parts-based workflows and resulting in faster simulation turnaround time. This is a key capability for applications which involve many parts such as vehicle thermal management, electronics cooling and heat exchangers.


STAR-CCM+ v10.06 also brings significant improvements to geometry preparation by automating the defeaturing process of a detailed CAD model. This release includes a new capability that finds holes and fillets of certain size and removes them from the CAD automatically to get it ready for analysis.


As with each STAR-CCM+ release, v10.06 possesses many new features and enhancements drawn from ideas submitted through IdeaStorm, the innovation forum exclusive to CD-adapco customers. To that end, the company is committed to three major releases each year to ensure it is delivering on its vision for the software and, at the same time, supporting the ongoing needs of its customers.
