CD-adapco Accelerates Development Efforts for Collaborative Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) Simulation Solutions

NEW YORK, NY and LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - August 18, 2016) - CD-adapco, a global provider of multidisciplinary engineering simulation and design exploration software, announced today accelerated development efforts for its industry-leading Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) simulation solutions. The overall plan enhances capabilities in the STAR-CD® /es-ice suite of software along with enabling a majority of in-cylinder simulation features within the company's flagship product, STAR-CCM+®, by the close of 2017.

Additionally, plans are underway to integrate this new capability with a collaborative data management backbone provided by Teamcenter and full 1D-3D coupling between Imagine.Lab Amesim and STAR-CCM+. The combined effort is focused on one goal - to improve the model fidelity, simplicity, and speed with which powertrain engineers can create, validate, and improve virtual prototypes of their products.

"The ground transportation market has been at the heart of CD-adapco's success, specifically in the area of Internal Combustion Engine simulation solutions. The recent acquisition by Siemens and synergies with our product offerings will allow us to execute even faster on our multidisciplinary design exploration vision for powertrain customers," said Bob Ryan, CD-adapco's newly appointed CEO. "Our goal is to provide the most complete and effective internal combustion engine simulation solution on the market for years to come."

"We are very excited about the work being done by CD-adapco customers in the area of in-cylinder flow and combustion," said Dr. Jan Leuridan, Senior Vice President, Simulation and Test Solutions, Siemens PLM Software. "It directly aligns with our vision of predictive engineering analytics and the digital twin which will allow customers to predict real-world behavior of products."

CD-adapco's July release of STAR-CD v4.26 illustrates the company's first steps toward this accelerated plan. Enhancements in this release focused on three primary objectives:

  • Expanding application scope with the efficient and robust "Advanced Wiebe" combustion model, which is more applicable to a broader range of operating conditions and combustion types,
  • Improving productivity with an enriched workflow for fuel injector spray setup and a simplified setup of multi-fuel simulations,
  • Predicting better NOx and soot emissions with the implementation of the NORA NOx emissions model and the Soot Sectional Method with G-equation combustion.

Results from recent benchmark studies show that enhancements to combustion models in STAR-CD are providing superior prediction of knock and emissions. Combining this with design space exploration is enabling the discovery of more innovative designs, and is automating the calibration runs for new injectors and testing different fuels. Outcomes of these and other studies will be presented at public events in the coming months.
