 I strongly suggest that you make time to visit the “STAR-CCM+
 Surgery” and “STAR-CCM+ Labs” desks in the exhibit area.
 There you will be able to experience at first hand all of the
 great new features that have been introduced to our flagship
 product in the past year, and get a glimpse into the future,
 with demos of exciting new functionalities that will be released
 during the coming year.

 engineers introduce ever more innovative ways of keeping
 lap time at a minimum – and the main element of a quick
 lap time is high down-force and low drag.

 Evolutionary aerodynamics design is no-longer sufficient to
 keep pace with the pack, but brand new concepts are often
 difficult to introduce and get right at the first attempt. With
 recent curtailments to track testing, getting things right
 at the first attempt becomes one of the most important
 tasks to accomplish – and one which has made numerical
 simulation indispensable.

 and to lead to many developments. To bring more efficiency
 into the development process of external aerodynamic

 more and more important.

 The development of such CFD methods are required to
 perform a strong correlation study between the simulation

 future developments, in touch with the “real world”.
 This correlation study has been possible via the use of

 In Climate Control Systems, the design of the defrost

 design. The defrost clearance pattern has to conform to

 focus of this work is to illustrate a CFD model which
 simulates the defrost melt pattern on the windscreen of

 The application case to be studied deals with an exhaust
 system comprising two after-treatment devices, namely a
 Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) and a Diesel Particulate
 Filter (DPF), which is a common configuration for most
 diesel engines. It is well known that when both devices
 are present in an exhaust system, their performance is
 strongly coupled. The flow distribution in front of the DOC
 is affected by the presence and the loading state of the
 downstream DPF. On the other hand, the exhaust gas
 conditions in front of the DPF during “regeneration mode”
 are controlled by the performance of the upstream DOC

 BEHR Fan Modeling Approach:
 From Transient Fan Blade Development up to System
 Optimization with Underhood Simulation
 F. BROTz, F. GUILBAUD, A. KLEBER, C. MAROLA - BEHR GMBH & CO. KG, STUTTGART, GERMANY

 Different fan modeling techniques are used for various
 levels of complexity in the BEHR development process.
 Looking at fan blade optimization with transient
 simulations of the fan test bench, strong effects on the
 fan characteristics can be shown with respect to the
 rotating fan blades interacting with the static engine
 dummy.

 MRF (multiple reference frame) or momentum source
 techniques are used in underhood simulations in order
 to investigate the interaction of the heat exchangers
 and optimize the engine cooling system for the mounted
 vehicle condition. Especially underhood simulations with
 advanced fan characteristics including swirl effects are in
 good agreement with wind tunnel measurements, looking
 at air flow rates of the individual heat exchangers and
 cooling performance respectively.

 In the past, Liebherr relied on empirical laws based on

 Therefore, we decided to turn to CFD and use STAR-CCM+

 At the initial stage, our investigation focuses on the
 accuracy of this new method by matching CFD results of
 both internal and external flow against flight test data. To
 further assess the capability of STAR-CCM+, a research

 With the introduction of the 3D-CAD module STAR-CCM+
 extends its capabilities into the parametric field allowing
 the user to build his geometrical models inside the

 STAR-CCM+ Java API is a strategic tool for every users
 who wants to save time through automated sequences of

 In such a favorable conditions a wizard for parametric

 capability of creating lists, defined by the user or compiled
 by D.o.E. algorithms, of parametric models to be analyzed.
 A real-life case study is investigated by the means provided
 by the wizard.

 Axial Compressor Design with AixCompFlow2D
 & STAR-CCM+
 N. MORITz, K. KUSTERER, F. MENDONCA, A. SHALINA - B&B-AGEMA GMBH

 The axial compressor design of gas turbines is very
 important with respect to increase of power plant
 efficiencies. The optimization of the compressor design
 is usually performed by application of 1D or 2D through
 flow codes. However, the 3D flow analysis has become
 more important in recent years for further improvement of
 compressor efficiency by adapting the geometry to local
 flow phenomena.

 The 2D streamline curvature tool AixCompFlow2D has
 been developed for design and analysis of heavy duty
 axial compressors. By application of the TurboWizard,
 it has been linked to STAR-CCM+, so that the user can
 semi-automatically generate a full 3D model of the entire
 compressor within a very short time and subsequently
 perform a 3D flow analysis.

 This presentation demonstrates the application of
 AixCompFlow2D in combination with STAR-CCM+ for such
 kind of analyses on basis of an example axial compressor.
 The management of the 2D tool, of the TurboWizard and
 of STAR-CCM+ including the result analysis during the
 compressor design process is shown to the audience.

 The fluid dynamic conditions of the hull in a multiphase flow
 are fundamental to estimate the resistance forces relative to
 the motion of the yacht and therefore to evaluate the engine
 power needed as well as analyzing the dynamics of the hull
 with two degrees of freedom (sink and trim).

 The complexity of such a system causes several
 hydrodynamic phenomena to occur, which are difficult to
 predict numerically. Therefore the parameters and boundary
 conditions of the simulations have been validated by
 comparing the numerical results with experimental data from
 a sea test.

 This situation can be avoided by using phase change
 materials (PCM) to store latently the wasted heat released
 from the converters into the building. It is well known that
 PCMs do not conduct heat sufficiently. To increase the
 conduction of heat into the PCM open cell, metal foam has
 been filled up with the PCM.

 This combination of metal foam and PCM has been
 analysed both experimentally and numerically. For the
 simulation of the processes, we apply the CFD-code
 STAR-CCM+ to model the phase changes in combination
 with a suitable configuration of computational fluid
 dynamics.

 works, e.g., scaffolds are extensively used to provide access
 and support to permanent work during building construction. It
 is common practice to cover scaffolds with plastic cladding to
 prevent debris and construction equipment from falling as well
 as to shield workers from the weather. Wind loads acting on
 scaffolds can be significantly increased due to this cladding.
 The only previous CFD-based research conducted to determine
 wind loads on temporary structures has been reported by
 Irtaza et al [3, 4, 5].

 This presentation shows the versatility of STAR-CCM+ for
 solving the problem of determination of wind loading on clad
 access scaffolding erected around a low-rise building. The
 package is used to model a standard clad access scaffold
 that surrounds a cubical building, to define and build a suitable
 mesh in the flow domain that can grab the flow characteristics,
 to assess various methods available for numerical simulation
 of turbulent fluid flow, to compare the computed results to
 available experimental data and to derive conclusions on
 the effect of the wind loading and direction on the pressure
 developed on the faces of the clad which finally transmits the
 forces to the metallic scaffold structure.
