Looking under the hood: AGCO finds superior performance and safety through STAR-CCM+ simulation

Agricultural vehicles increasingly have to provide a comfortable and safe working environment for operators, some of whom will spend their entire working day inside a cabin. AGCO, a worldwide manufac……

“Don’t it always seem to go, that you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone…”

“Don’t it always seem to go, that you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone…” sang the words out of the stereo with surprising clarity; I am in the process of replacing my ancient car (inherite……

New accuracy study opens the door to CFD led clinical trials

Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a vital tool for the research of blood flow dynamics in the human cardiovascular system as well as other biological flow phenomena. Recently, CFD has garnered in……

STAR-ICE: Internal Combustion Engine simulation comes to STAR-CCM+

The Economist recently published an obituary to the Internal Combustion Engine in an article which opened with the statement that:”It had a good run. But the end is in sight for the machine that chan……

STAR-CCM+ v12.06: Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah

Over the past several releases the STAR-CCM+ team has been hard at work ensuring that users can easily and effectively replace components in their models and re-run in under five clicks.  Betwee……

Less is more only when more is too much in STAR-CCM+ v12.06

The proposition that “less is more”, first penned by Robert Browning back in 1855, has stood the test of time. It has influenced architecture throughout this century and the last and was keenly asses……

Realistic Combustion Simulation with STAR-CCM+ v12.06

When I started in this field more than 12 years ago, combustion CFD simulations were typically done using CPU inexpensive approaches such as eddy break-up or flamelet combustion models with RANS. The……

High fidelity combustion simulations drive down emissions

Here in the UK, we are not known for large amounts of sunshine but this summer was the greenest ever for energy, largely driven by the huge growth in the number of solar and wind farms.  Between……

STAR-CCM+ v12.04: Innovate faster with Design Manager!

I was sitting on a high speed train the other day, admiring the beauty of the countryside. We passed by a nuclear plant and a wind farm. Later on, while surfing on social networks, I came across an o……
