CD-adapco has released version 8.02.011-R8 of its STAR-CCM+ software, which the company says will help users accelerate product development processes by performing more simulations in less time. The introduction of Multi-part Solids improves the scalability of thermal simulations that previously involved multiple parts and materials. The ability to use a single solid continuum makes thermal simulation problems easier to set-up, and increases the speed of calculation, the company says. The new Solar Loads Calculator allows solar radiation to be automatically specified by latitude, longitude, time and date, with an additional factor to account for changing skies. These parameters are updated automatically during transient analysis to facilitate the simulation of occupant comfort.
CD-adapco is the world’s largest independent CFD focused CAE provider. Our core products are the technology-leading simulation packages, STAR-CCM+ and STAR-CD. The scope of our activities, however, extends well beyond CFD software development to encompass a wide range of CAE engineering services in fluid dynamics, heat transfer and structural engineering. Our ongoing mission is to “inspire innovation and reduce costs through the application of engineering simulation software and services.”
A privately owned company, CD-adapco has maintained 17% organic year-on-year growth over the last 5 years. CD-adapco employs 700 talented individuals, working at 30 different offices across the globe.
