March 4, 2020 - Siemens Digital Industries Software announced its latest release of Simcenter STAR-CCM+ software, part of the Simcenter portfolio of simulation and test solutions that helps companies optimize design and deliver innovations. The latest release of Simcenter STAR-CCM+ includes enhancements to improve simulation time and accuracy as well as enhance collaboration, giving customers a digital twin to help drive predictive simulations. In this release, Siemens is introducing a parallel polyhedral mesher for more effective meshing, as well as a model-driven adaptive mesh refinement (AMR) solution. The latest release also includes automatic coupled solver control for reduced set up time while improving convergence speed and a collaborative virtual reality (VR) feature in a CFD code for enhanced team collaboration on simulation results.
The latest release of Simcenter STAR-CCM+ offers a fully-rewritten parallel polyhedral mesher. Using parallel performance, providing a consistent mesh regardless of the cores used and a more effective mesh distribution. Adaptive mesh refinement (AMR) technology is a model-driven AMR, which intelligently refines the mesh based on the physics.
Collaborative VR in Simcenter STAR-CCM+ allows teams across the globe to interact in the same virtual environment in real time. Multiple VR clients can now be connected and synchronized to the same simulation, with avatars showing the location of other users and providing the ability to tether users to get the same experience.Simcenter STAR-CCM+ is an integrated solution for computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and multiphysics simulation that brings automated design exploration and optimization within the grasp of all simulation engineers. Simcenter and Simcenter STAR-CCM+ are part of Xcelerator portfolio, Siemens’ integrated portfolio of software, services and application development platform.
