Simon Richards speaking at the STAR-American-Conference 2011
We compare battery performance simulations from a commercial lithium-ion battery modeling software package against manufacturer performance specifications and laboratory tests to assess model validity. A set of commercially manufactured spiral wound lithium-ion cells were electrochemically tested and then disassembled and physically characterized. The Battery Design Studio ® (BDS) software was then used to create a mathematical model of each battery, and discharge simulations at constant C-rates ranging from C/5 to 2C were compared against laboratory tests and manufacturer performance...

Prediction of cavitation dynamics in marine applications
The use of cavitation modeling within the maritime industry area is in a crucial state. The advances in the computer power, the understanding of the numeric’s and cavitation phenomena do make possible to bring these kinds of simulations into the daily use. The general goal within the marine industry is to have a numerical tool which can predict the accurate behavior of cavitating flow both in design stage and for problem solving situations. In this presentation results will be shown of cavitating flow obtained with STAR-CD, for a two-dimensional case (NACA 0015 profile) and for a three-...
Experimental Validation of STAR-CCM+ for Liquid Container Slosh Dynamics
The NASA Launch Services Program has funded several propellant slosh related projects over the years with the goal of obtaining experimental data to anchor CFD predictions. STAR-CCM+ is used to create a CFD model of water sloshing in an 8” diameter spherical tank. The predictions from this CFD slosh model are compared to experimental data to validate the results. The data compared include slosh natural frequency, damping rate and free surface topology. These important validations allow us to increase our confidence in STAR-CCM+ for use on NASA missions.
STAR-CCM+ v8 Introduction
CD-adapco's Senior VP of Product Management introduces STAR-CCM+ v8.02 latest release. Live product demonstrations will accompany the presentation to further highlight key features.
CD-adapco Global Academic Program - More than Just Licenses!
This presentation will give academics an opportunity to learn about the CD-adapco Global Academic Program which provides software, training, teaching modules and more to our global academic community. Working closely with hundreds of leading academic institutions around the world to introduce STAR-CCM+ into the classroom, labs, capstone design and student competition teams, we are helping to prepare students for a successful engineering career in industry.
Numerical Validation of the Noise Characteristics of the Radial Fans with Forward Curved Blades
This presentation investigates the noise characteristics of radial fans with forward curved blades by performing CFD simulations with the emphasis on employing different turbulence models (RANS/URANS, DES, LES) and unstructured grids. The noise radiated from the fan is calculated with the aeroacoustic models provided by STAR-CCM+ (e.g. FW-H) and correlated with the results obtained from the hybrid approach (using ACTRAN) as well as the experimental results obtained from duct method according to DIN EN ISO 5136. The predicted noise spectra obtained from the simulations are in good agreement...
