STAR-CCM+ v11.02 enables efficient two-way FSI coupling by simulating rotating solid parts in a local rotating frame of reference, leading to significant time savings in throughput, specifically for applications in the Marine Industry.

The good news for pending engineering graduates is that you no longer need to worry much about making lattes at Starbucks after earning your diploma. According to a recent article in the Wall Street Journal, college graduate unemployment and underemployment is down and incomes are rising. Unemployment for graduates dropped to 4.9% in September 2015 and, better yet, 8 of the 10 highest paying degrees were engineering majors.

We've pulled together leading companies for the first STAR Career Day. Students will get a 'day in the life' perspective from executives at PACCAR, Boeing, Daimler, Pacific National Labs, and CD-adapco. Not sure what to expect in your first interview? Hiring managers using STAR-CCM+ in their company will give real-world advice on the skill sets, training, interview scenarios, and CV/résumé content they look for in new graduate candidates.

Data Focus is a unique visualization technique to explore and interrogate results interactively. Data Focus provides a live and interactive link between quantitative numerical data in plots and qualitative visual data in scenes. This link between quantitative and qualitative analysis allows the user to easily and effectively gain insight into the key influences on product performance.

Local surface remeshing allows for remeshing only selected areas when changing mesh parameters or performing design changes, reducing surface mesh generation time up to an order of magnitude and a key enabler of efficient design space exploration.

Until the release of STAR-CCM+ v11.02, composite particles were needed when modelling anything cylindrical and, to get a realistic representation, this required a large number of spheres.With the introduction of cylindrical particles in v11.02, users will experience increased accuracy and reduced computational time, a rare win-win situation in simulation.

With STAR-CCM+ v11.02, you can now combine two or more materials when simulating extrusions, enabling the analysis of more complex products targeted to very specific applications. For example, multi-luminal medical tubing has very narrow tolerances and needs to meet the highest quality standards. Consequently, it’s critical to understand how design changes to the die profile or variations in feedstock properties can impact end product quality.
