Siemens’ STAR-CCM+ Software Adds Fully Integrated Design Exploration and Optimization

STAR-CCM+ allows engineers to easily automate the process of exploring an entire design space in order to understand how multiple input parameters affect the model’s outputs.

STAR-CCM+ is the only multiphysics CFD offering that seamlessly enables engineers to perform design exploration studies backed by an industrial-strength optimization tool like HEEDS.

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.”

Companies are looking for innovative answers to today’s challenging engineering problems to differentiate themselves in the market. Using simulation to…
