Siemens Digital Industries Software announces the availability of the latest release of Simcenter STAR-CCM+ software. This release of the multi-physics computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software includes new features to help engineers model the complexity of today’s products and explore design possibilities to engineer innovation faster than ever. Simcenter STAR-CCM+ is part of the Simcenter portfolio of simulation and test solutions within Siemens’ Xcelerator portfolio of integrated software and services.
Siemens has expanded the capabilities of Simcenter STAR-CCM+ related to turbomachinery, delivering improved productivity and increased insight into performance for better engineering decisions. Across industries and applications, CFD engineers can benefit from increased productivity through consistent use of best practices and speeding the exploration of design possibilities. Simcenter STAR-CCM+ users can now open simulation files in read-only mode without consuming a license, giving users greater ability to check the set-up, make comparisons and leverage best practices across many simulations.
With Surrogate Models in Design Manager, engineers can predict the performance of thousands of variants either locally around the design of interest to analyze probability of failure, or globally across the design space to quickly create a database of performance results that can be leveraged by the simulation team.
Additionally, Simcenter STAR-CCM+ can now better model the complexity of today’s products through electromagnetic simulations. For all applications with electric circuits, including electric machines, circuit breakers and batteries, engineers can now save significant time with the new Electric Circuit Editor. Engineers can readily sketch sophisticated circuits with an easy-to-use and intuitive graphical interface, enhancing usability of the circuit model and saving valuable engineering time. This release further expands electromagnetic application coverage for electric machines with the introduction of a new excitation coil model, allowing the design of higher power density machines with closed coils such as those found in axial flux machines.
