Who Should Attend

The STAR-CCM+ course is most suitable for engineers or analysts that are new to CD-adapco software or computational fluid dynamics in general. Additionally, the course can be used as refresher training for experienced or occasional users of the software.

Course Description

Serving as an introduction to our Enterprise-Wide software solution, the aim of the class is to equip the attendee with a firm understanding of the basic principles of computational fluid flow and heat transfer analysis, as delivered in STAR-CCM+.

Attendees will experience a gradual well-structured learning curve over a two day period that reflects the major processes developed in STAR-CCM+. Each day we aim to have attendees using the software, hands-on, to begin their own simulations after instruction through tutorials and lectures. Using this structured approach, attendees will leave the training ready to address common numerical engineering challenges using STAR-CCM+ comfortable in the knowledge that CD-adapco engineering support will be available to provide on-going technical support.

Course Content

Day 1

    During the first part of the day, we discuss and present the conceptual elements of fluid flow simulation moving on to describe how these elements are represented in the workflow process of STAR-CCM+. We describe the architecture of the software and the advantages of the client-server approach before moving into an introductory example that moves from problem import to a review of simulation results and an introduction to post-processing.
Day 2
    Day two focuses on the basics of mesh generation – principles and strategies for efficient computational solving. Tutorials on automatic meshing are completed that include an introduction to multi domain meshing and surface cleanup.
    The knowledge acquired over the two days are consolidated and an advanced module is explored. In all cases, the examples reinforce the STAR-CCM+ workflow process and introduce additional capability and productivity features.
