By HarryLehtiniemi

Do you want to include more physics and chemistry into your combustion system design process? The latest release of STAR-CD/es-ice/DARS, version 2019.1, is now available for download from our customer portal.  Download them now and get access to a host of new features and enhancements including:

  • Use chemical mechanisms with thousands of species and get results overnight with the new optimizations and speed-ups in our detailed chemistry solver

  • Improve the prediction of evaporation and mixture formation in GDI engine simulations with our new flash boiling model

  • Get a better flow prediction in refined areas and in near-wall regions through the new Low Reynolds RNG K-Epsilon model with hybrid wall functions

  • Create laminar flame speed and flamelet libraries with mechanisms of any size quickly and efficiently using DARS

Please contact your in-cylinder Dedicated Support Engineer (DSE) for a full new features presentation covering all new features and improvements in STAR-CD/es-ice/DARS 2019.1, and stay tuned for more exciting in-cylinder capabilities coming in Simcenter STAR-CCM+ 2019.2 in June.
