STAR-CAT5 is a flow and thermal simulation software from CD-adapco that is embedded in the CATIA v5 PLM-environment system to provide design engineers with quick feedback on product design performance during the definition and development phase. It also allows to drive STAR-CCM+ advanced CFD solution. Strengthening the deployment of a enterprise-wide CFD solution, meeting needs of both design and validation groups while sharing analysis information.
Designers, engineers, and analysts are not required to learn a specialist simulation tool
Associativity with parametric CAD models allows easy modification of parts without the need to redefine units, materials or boundary conditions, saving time and improving productivity.
The simulation is directly associated with the geometry, enabling interactive as well as automated parametric what-if design evaluations for optimization.
A unique and proven technology, the polyhedral cells, brings speed, solution stability, and more accuracy for CFD simulations than tetrahedral elements.
