The biggest challenge of gradient-based shape optimization using high-fidelity CFD has always been the formidable computational expense tied to constructing the sensitivity of the objective (or cost) functions with respect to the design variables. Take for example the case of a typical external aerodynamics application. An aircraft manufacturer wants to improve on the operational performance of the existing fleet by adding winglets to their aging aircraft. This modernization will only pay off if the installation of the winglet results in significant fuel savings. The company aerodynamics...
When it comes to systems, one of the most complex (and perhaps least understood) of all is that of the human body. The average adult human body is, on average, 57% - 60% water. That's a lot of fluid! So it stands to reason that CFD is a great tool for simulating the systems of things like medical implants, surgical techniques, diagnostic systems and the like. A recent artilce published in Desktop Engineering examines how CFD is making an impact in the medical field. Our own Krisitan Debus Ph.D. talks about our work with an ASME sub-committee, writing verification and validation guidelines for...
Thousands of academics in hundreds of academic institutions all around the world have implemented STAR-CCM+ into their undergrad, grad and post grad curriculum.
Our teaching modules have been developed under the guidance of Professor David Gosman and Milovan Peric, author of the widely used book, Computational Methods for Fluid Dynamics.
To ensure academic users are utilizing STAR-CCM+ to its fullest extent, CD-adapco provides dedicated STAR-CCM+ Foundation Training at no charge to the academic community. No travel budget? No problem! Classes are delivered live over the Internet!
Join our Academic CFD Simulation Group to connect with CFD enthusiasts from all over the world. This is THE place to be for all that is CFD in academia.
Wherever you are in the world, your local GAP contact is only a few moments away, using the Steve Portal.
Are the computers in the lab fully occupied? Are you off-campus and have an assignment or project due tomorrow? How about a last minute tweak to the competition vehicle? Wouldn't it be nice if you had your very own STAR-CCM+ license to ease the pain of these situations?
CD-adapco is committed to high standards of academic excellence and research innovation. In addition to cutting edge simulation tools, our Research Package provides flexibility on how and where you utilize your hardware resources. Unique license options allow STAR-CCM+ to be distributed across unlimited number of processors for a fixed cost.
The Global Academic Program provides FREE individual academic licenses directly to students for installation on their own personal laptop or home computer. These are full capability, no cell limit licenses - the very same as used by our commercial customers. All you need is an internet connection to access power with ease.
