The latest release of Simcenter™ STAR-CCM+ software, part of the Simcenter portfolio of simulation and test solutions for optimizing design, includes improvements to simulation time and accuracy, and enhanced collaboration. These features give customers a comprehensive digital twin to drive predictive simulations. In this release, Siemens is introducing a new parallel polyhedral mesher for faster, 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. Convergence speed is improved through a collaborative virtual reality (VR) feature in a CFD code for enhanced team collaboration on simulation results.
The fully-rewritten parallel polyhedral mesher builds meshes up to 30 times faster than in serial, for a consistent mesh regardless of the cores used and a more effective mesh distribution with the same accuracy and robustness. New adaptive mesh refinement (AMR) technology intelligently refines the mesh based on the physics. This can lead to less user interaction as well as computational overhead and reduces overall mesh size.
Collaborative VR in Simcenter STAR-CCM+ allows teams across the globe to interact in the same immersive virtual environment in real time, enhancing communication and decision-making. 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.
