Default STAR-CD vs CCM+
Posts: n/a

I am new to CFD and looking at the 2 different packages from CD Adapco - STAR-CD and CCM+. Before I start using either package it would be nice to get some feedback from this community on the pros and cons of each package.

thank you much.

As almost always it depends of what kind of problem you are working with. CCM+ is clearly more user friendly, includes almost everything that StarCD does, but some features are still missing, like sliding mesh and the VTM plugin. But since you are new to CFD I would recomend you to go for CCM+, because thats the the code for the future. Its rather pointless to learn StarCD only to switch and learn CCM+ in a year from now. I expect my own 10 year experience from StarCD/prostar/proam becoming obsolete very soon... So if you are not desperately in need of something that CCM+ cant do for the moment, go for CCM+.
