DETROIT, MICHIGAN -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Nov 09, 2010 -- CD-adapco announces a limited beta release of its STAR-CCM+ Battery Simulation Module code at the STAR Global Transportation Forum in Detroit, held November 9th, 2010.
CD-adapco, a leading provider of engineering simulation tools, announced today a limited beta release of its long anticipated Battery Simulation Module. This module is an extension of CD-adapco's flagship CAE tool, STAR-CCM+, and allows the simulation of flow, thermal and electrochemistry phenomena within one simulation environment, providing the user with all the multi-physics capability required to simulate battery behavior in one environment. This technology is jointly developed by CD-adapco with its partner in this field, Battery Design LLC, and builds on more than 40 years of combined expertise in this discipline. The limited beta release is a prelude to the formal delivery of this code within the next milestone version of STAR-CCM+, due in February 2011.
Steve Hartridge, Director of Electric and Hybrid Vehicle Technologies at CD-adapco, commented, "We have had unprecedented interest in this technology and considering the significance of the development we want to include some of our partners in an additional user feedback phase. We have already identified some users but we do have some additional places available."
CD-adapco also announced today that it will become a worldwide distributor of Battery Design LLC's code Battery Design Studio. This follows a successful pilot project in Japan which has seen considerable traction in this influential market. By providing the Battery Simulation Module and Battery Design Studio through one channel, users have a complete simulation process from the definition of prototype battery cells or new active coatings through to the visualization of that battery's electrochemical and thermal performance operating as part of a large traction battery pack. Dr. Robert Spotnitz, President of Battery Design LLC commented "We are very pleased to be able to offer Battery Design Studio to a wider audience. CD-adapco's worldwide coverage and commitment to this discipline means customers can expect a coherent, exhaustive solution."
