Discover better designs, faster, and extract higher value from your simulation process with Design Manager
Globalization , standardization , environmental and product customization are some examples of the new challenges industry is facing. Organizations need to design innovative products faster and at lower costs. Design exploration has often been relegated to the corners of the design process due to lack of time, know-how and appropriate processes or solutions. However, engineers need to explore the design space early to discover innovative product designs, reduce development time, risks, and meet or exceed customer expectations. Design Manager aims to overcome these challenges and make design...
Just one numerical simulation contains a wealth of information – we can gain a lot of insight on how a device performs, and from that, we can infer how to make that device better. To confidently recommend one design over another, though, we’ll need to run more than one simulation. As our device knowledge is informed through simulation, we can expect to make numerous geometry/part modifications to the original design. How quickly we can turn these changes around will determine how many simulations we can run within our time budget. Without a highly efficient and flexible workflow, we might find ourselves in the position of being less certain of our final product recommendation. Risky. Now, you’ll be hearing a lot soon about Design Manager, a native capability within STAR-CCM+ v12.04® to do design exploration – that’s not this story. Instead, I want to share how two mouse clicks can now get you quickly from that first simulation to the next one, and to the one after that and the one after that...
The latest release of Siemens’ STAR-CCM+® software for multiphysics computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation and analysis includes two new seamlessly integrated features which enable automated product design exploration and optimization. STAR-CCM+ version 12.04 introduces Design Manager, allowing users to easily explore multiple design options within their CFD simulations, and STAR-Innovate™ software, which uses the same proven design optimization technology found in HEEDS™ software – a technology Siemens obtained as part of its 2016 acquisition of CD-adapco. STAR-CCM+ is developed by Siemens’ product lifecycle management (PLM) software business, and is part of the company’s Simcenter™ portfolio, a robust suite of simulation and test solutions. "I firmly believe that single-scenario engineering simulations are about to become a thing of the past,” said Jean-Claude Ercolanelli, Senior VP of Product Management at Siemens PLM Software. “If you know how to use STAR CCM+ then you will instinctively know how to use Design Manager. This means that every engineer who installs STAR CCM+ v12.04 can now conduct design exploration studies with ease to discover better designs, faster."
Virtuelle Produktentwicklung bei Haushaltsgeräten – Durch Simulation Effizienz- und Funktionsanforderungen meistern
Neben dem Erhalt immer besserer Energielabels und dem damit einhergehenden Gewährleisten strikterer Effizienzkriterien stehen im Haushaltsgerätemarkt und bei seinen Produkten heutzutage vor allem das Erfüllen gesteigerter Endverbrauchererwartungen und Sicherheitsaspekte im besonderen Fokus. So ist für die Hersteller beim Design und der Entwicklung von Öfen, Kühlschränken, Waschmaschinen und Trockner nicht nur ein möglichst detailliertes Verständnis von dem thermischen Verhalten der Geräte erforderlich, um energieeffizientere Produkte entwickeln zu können, auch die korrekte Funktionsweise und...
As we move into the summer months, I am ever thankful that modern commercial aircraft systems have been developed to provide a safe and comfortable passenger experience. The Environmental Control System (ECS) is responsible for keeping the cabin at a comfortable temperature, pressure and humidity throughout the flight profile. This is done through a complex system of ducting, pressure regulators, heat exchangers and air conditioning components. Before the FAA can certify a new aircraft for commercial flight, the manufacturer has to be able to provide proof that the system can respond to situations where things go wrong.
Using CFD to evaluate ship hull performance in realistic sea conditions
Growing competition and increasing environmental awareness within the marine industry drives a continuous need for more efficient methods for the design of new vessels. Today, CFD is widely used to perform analyses of ship hulls in calm water, yielding results which can be used to quantify important parameters such as calm water resistance or propeller-hull interaction. However, calm water is usually far from the true operating conditions, meaning that understanding the performance in real sea states is of great importance. In many cases, the optimum design for rough seas differs...
Siemens’ STAR-CCM+® software, the industry-leading multiphysics computational fluid dynamics (CFD) tool, has achieved ASME Nuclear Quality Assurance-1 compliance. The addition of NQA-1 compliance in the rigorous ASME QA certification program ensures the code meets industry-standard requirements for nuclear industry customers in support of safety-related applications. STAR-CCM+ is developed by Siemens’ product lifecycle management (PLM) software business and is part of the company’s Simcenter™ portfolio of simulation solutions.
When my kids were younger, one of the favorite entertainment options at children’s parties was the balloon artist. These artists were able to make anything from a monkey to a pirate hat simply by twisting balloons together. Usually, but not always, you could tell what the animal or object was meant to be, but it would take the most imaginative child to see the multi-colored lumpy lion in front of them as the real thing. Whilst lions are not the most common shape for non-spherical DEM particles, should you have the need to model such a thing, previously your only option would have been the composite DEM particle and the result would have been much the same, a bunch of spheres of various sizes stuck together. All of that is set to change with the polyhedral DEM particle in STAR-CCM+® software version 12.04. Now you will be able to accurately model real objects, putting the corners back into your particles, by building or importing a realistic representation as a geometry part which then forms the basis of your particle. For many objects, this new polyhedral particle is less computationally expensive then a composite particle which can require many spheres to get close to a realistic shape. Polyhedral particles also provide a more efficient solution, reducing simulation time.
