Custom Sim Trees in STAR-CCM+ v11.04 are a fundamentally new way to work with the sim tree, allowing users to create smaller node trees in a separate window for less scrolling and easier navigation overall.

STAR-CCM+ is now part of the new Simcenter™ Porfolio for predictive engineering analytics. Simcenter combines simulation and physical testing with design exploration and data analytics to help customers develop digital twins that accurately predict product performance.

Deriving and supplying appropriate properties for complex structures has not been an easy task, but all that is about to change with the upcoming release of STAR-CCM+® v11.04, and the introduction of the multi-layer solid model for solids and shells. This feature allows for treating laminates made up from multiple layers of different materials as multicomponent solids.

In STAR-CCM+® v11.04, the highly regarded (extended) pom-pom adds to our list of viscoelastic constitutive models. Best suited for highly branched polymers like low density polyethylene (LDPE), it is able to most accurately predict viscoelastic responses for elongational flows commonly encountered in industrial processing.

Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI) is the study of thermo-mechanical interactions of a fluid and a solid structure. FSI modeling for implant device design is taking on even greater importance in the current medical device environment, as producing better designs, faster, is imperative in this industry to reduce operating costs and introduce necessary potentially live-saving devices to market.
