Discover Better Designs, Faster.

Simcenter STAR-CCM+ goes beyond being a top-tier Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software. It provides a comprehensive solution, integrating precise and effective multidisciplinary technologies within a unified user interface. By encompassing various engineering disciplines as a simulation tool, it expedites the design process and facilitates the identification of enhanced designs through its ability to forecast a product's real-world performance.



In order to effectively address the complex nature of real-world engineering problems, it is essential to utilize simulation tools that can encompass various physical phenomena and engineering disciplines, rather than segregating them into distinct categories like "aerodynamics," "hydrodynamics," "heat transfer," and "solid mechanics." STAR-CCM+ stands out as an exceptional simulation tool that offers a wide array of validated models, allowing for the simulation of diverse disciplines and physics, such as:

Computational fluid dynamics (CFD)

Computational solid mechanics (CSM)

Electromagnetics, heat transfer, multiphase flow, particle dynamics, reacting flow

Electrochemistry, aero-acoustics, and rheology


No matter how realistic a simulation is, the results are only useful if they are generated with sufficient time to influence and guide the final product design. This is only possible when the simulation process is a robust and automated one. STAR-CCM+ enables every simulation model to be built using a repeatable and robust workflow, allowing models to be easily reused and updated to investigate a full range of design configurations and operating scenarios with minimal manual effort. STAR-CCM+ brings automated design exploration and optimization with Design Manager, enabling users to set up and automatically evaluate families of designs directly within STAR-CCM+.

When utilized properly, engineering simulation proves to be a valuable investment with a significant return. Nonetheless, the licensing models offered by various software vendors often result in the underutilization of computing resources and exorbitant costs for comprehensive design exploration. STAR-CCM+ presents a variety of reasonably priced and adaptable licensing choices to cater to the specific simulation requirements and desired throughput of every user.

Power sessions: A fixed price for unlimited cores; provides scalability

Power on demand: Metered usage for unlimited cores; provides agility for changing demands and cloud computing

Power tokens: Concurrent simulations with as many cores as needed; provides flexibility for design exploration

Cutting Edge

In order to ensure a strong and effective simulation process, it is crucial for the tools to constantly progress alongside the evolving demands of the industry. STAR-CCM+ has established a notable track record in technology leadership and adopts an ambitious development schedule, with three significant releases annually. These frequent updates consistently introduce groundbreaking technologies to address the ever-changing requirements of simulation. Furthermore, STAR-CCM+ benefits from a team of international experts, who provide dedicated support engineers to assist every customer. This ensures that users can maintain productivity and effectively apply simulation in both established and emerging applications.
