Why Simcenter STAR-CCM+ Essentials?

Benefits: Boost your productivity with a single fully integrated user interface. Cope with even the most complex applications. Cut your computational fluid dynamics (CFD) preparation times. Leverage powerful end-to-end code-free workflow automation and fully embedded design exploration.

Simcenter STAR-CCM+ is a multiphysics CFD software enabling simulation engineers to model the complexity and explore the possibilities of products operating under real-world conditions.

What's included in Simcenter STAR-CCM+ Essentials?

Simcenter STAR-CCM+ Essentials includes:

  • A serial session of Simcenter STAR-CCM+: a single instance of a Simcenter STAR-CCM+ serial session enables you to use one core at an authorized site. A session includes all pre- and post-processing functionalities, as well as the full range of multiphysics capabilities and may be run interactively or in batch on local or remote compute resources.
  • Three power tokens: power tokens are add-ons to Simcenter STAR-CCM+. At an authorized site, each power token enables an HPC license—an additional core to be utilized upon redemption of one power token. Together with the serial session license, you can run a single CFD simulation in parallel on up to four cores.
  • Teamcenter Share access: a next-generation and cloud-based collaboration solution from Siemens. With capabilities including secure, central storage and e-mail address-based sharing, Teamcenter Share allows you to instantly, securely and easily collaborate with colleagues, partners and customers.

Key features

Boost your productivity with a single fully integrated user interface
You can use Simcenter STAR-CCM+ to find everything from preprocessing via meshing through multiphysics modeling to complex data analysis, photorealistic visualization and virtual reality (VR) in one single unified computational fluid dynamics simulation software.

Leverage complex applications with integrated multiphysics and motion modeling capabilities
Designed as a multiphysics CFD software tool, using Simcenter STAR-CCM+ helps you cover physics beyond fluid flow and heat transfer. Modeling capabilities include single and multiphase flows, particle dynamics, reactive flows, fluids-structure interaction (FSI), aeroacoustics, rheology and electrodynamics modeling. Thanks to a fully integrated solver platform, you can run even the most complex multiphysics computational fluid dynamics simulations.

Cut your CFD preparation times with automated meshing and preprocessing of complex geometries
Using Simcenter STAR-CCM+ will help you reduce your simulation preparation time from weeks to hours. Thanks to cutting-edge CFD software technologies like automated CAD cleanup, surface wrapping and automated high-fidelity meshing, you will spend your time where it matters: engineering better products.

Leverage end-to-end code-free workflow automation and fully embedded design exploration
Unlike other CFD software tools, Simcenter STAR-CCM+ has been built around the idea of automated simulations from start to finish to enable CFD-based design exploration.
