modules require for turbo simulation
i plan to buy star ccm+.. & my job is to simulation of automotive turbocharger so turbo machinery kind of simulation.
For turbo kind of simulation I've to buy what are the modules? Pls brief.

STAR-CCM+ is an all-inclusive packing - CAD, meshing etc etc - one code in one window and no separate modules. Includes a 'turbo wizard' to aid turbomachinery case setup - never used it and know nothing about turbochargers.

for turbo post processing whether i have to create the blade model in star ccm+'s turbo wizard or can i use my imported step file.
because generally i export the wheel CAD model from pro/e and i usually get the step file for cfd simulation.
thanks in adv.

I haven't used the turbo wizard yet, but in the ccm+ help, one can read

The geometry and demands put upon the resolution of the model near a typical blade/impeller setup make step 1 challenging. The turbo wizard will simplify the creation of a high quality mesh and application of appropriate boundary conditions to it.
A typical analysis starts with either a blade design or a CAD model of the blade. This can be imported into the turbo wizard by creating an input file that defines the blade surface as a set of coordinates. The fluid mesh is then created around it, boundary conditions are applied to the fluid domain and the model is solved in STAR-CCM+."

Hope this helps.
