New York and London. September 1, 2010

CD-adapco is pleased to announce the release of STAR-CD and es-ice V4.14, the latest version of its comprehensive toolkit for engine simulation. As well as introducing new physics models, we have invested significantly in enhancing and tuning the existing capabilities to increase their flexibility, speed, accuracy and robustness.

New features and enhancements offered with this release include;

Mesh replacement and solution mapping for moving mesh ICE applications: Users are now able to strategically deploy a number of different meshes throughout the engine cycle, allowing the introduction of the most appropriate topologies as and when they are needed. For example, special areas of refinement can be introduced during the injection phase in order to correctly resolve the development of the spray. Additional cells can also be introduced near TDC.

Improved mesh quality: Ongoing improvements to trimming, smoothing and prism layer technology lead to better quality meshes and increased solver robustness.

Optional remedial treatment: The solver now has the ability to detect numerical problems caused by poor cell quality, severe changes in flow conditions or both, and to take remedial action to improve solution stability.

Automatic 2D template generation: Reduces the amount of time, skill and experience required to generate meshes for a wide range of engine configurations.

Automatic generation of a true 4-valve model from a 2/4-valve model: Permits changes to valve timing and geometry.

New ICE oriented post processing: Allows the calculation of data for full-cycle or part-cycle including Net Indicated Work/Cycle, Net Indicated Power/Cylinder and Net Indicated Mean Effective Pressure

New and improved physics:

Improvement and extension of the soot libraries

Wiebe functions for simple heat release.

Further validation of the ELSA atomization model.

Further validation and extension of ECFM-3Z and CLEH combustion models

Further validation and extension of the TIF combustion

Further consolidated and validation of Level Set combustion model
