Multiphysics simulation

STAR-CD V4.06 from CD-adapco solves problems involving complex multiphysics and complicated geometries using stationary or moving meshes. It provides an improved meshing process and the ability to simulate physics phenomena that have been typically beyond the reach of mainstream CFD technology. The CAE platform performs simulations including combustion, multiphase flow, heat transfer, conjugate heat transfer, melting and solidification, and stress. It provides improved treatment of porous media and polyhedral meshes, as well as additional options for finite volume stress analysis including orthotropic elastic materials, automatic time step control based on plastic strain, and improved solution mapping from mesh to mesh.
