"All in package"

What do you like best?

The program has great user interface, with a lot of toggles that allows you to run your simulations with the parameters you want. The post processing of the simulation also allows you to instantly visualize the simulations and calculate the values you need.

There are a lot of resources on how to run simulations - I was even able to find documents of running supersonic and hypersonic simulations.

What do you dislike?

Importing of CAD generated by other software can be a little clunky at times, especially if the geometry is complicated. A lot of manual cleanup work is required before the CAD can be used successfully.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If cost is not a concern, definitely consider using STAR-CCM+. The licenses are rather expensive and you will need one for every user to use the user interface and also one for every ongoing simulation.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are trying to find the aerodynamic properties of the design of our vehicles. We are able to calculate the aerodynamic parameters quickly and allows us to iterate our designs.

"User experience"

What do you like best?

The software is very user-friendly and it just takes a couple of weeks to gain good expertise if you have the CFD background. It has all the modules available for CAD, surface preparation, Meshing to a solution with solvers which can solve simple flow problems to complex simulations. Overall its a single package for performing computational fluid dynamics simulations.

What do you dislike?

Penetration in academia is little less which makes it difficult to find students with good knowledge of STAR-CCM+.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would definitly recommend this software

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Worked on projects for a automotive industry and it seamlessly connection from CAD to the solution is really seamless and beneficial. Other biggest benefit id from parallel processing, with continuous developments in the software the product, simulations scales well with large meshes.

What Oil and Gas Simulation and Modeling solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Great CFD Software"

What do you like best?

StarCCM+ is very easy to use comparing ANSYS fluent, and it always gives you a reasonable result even if your boundary condition is not perfect.

What do you dislike?

The geometry preparation part can be improved better (especially considering that its competitor - ANSYS has acquired a CAD startup who is really good at geometry preparation).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Compare it to ANSYS Fluent and pick the best for yourself. Either one has its own advantages and disadvantages, Fluent is more popular and may get you a more accurate simulation result, but StarCCM+ is more user friendly and for most of times its simulation result is as good as Fluent.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was using StarCCM+ to solve fluid heat transfer problems for computer heat sink, it take less time to train a new engineer to use it than ANSYS Fluent, and it's easier to prepare geometry in StarCCM+ than ANSYS Design Modeler. It saves engineer's time to get a relatively accurate simulation result. Me and my colleague both prefer StarCCM+ to ANSYS Fluent.

"This software is diverse in its capabilities and always improving. "

What do you like best?

I like the user-friendly GUI. It always for easy navigation through the software.

What do you dislike?

The 3D-CAD usability. It should have more capabilities to make modifications in the software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I simulate HVAC in the automotive industry. I realize the benefits of fast paced development that is achievable through this software.

"Powerful CFD"

What do you like best?

The Steve Portal online assistance platform is a very well designed resource.

What do you dislike?

Like any CFD, there is a learning curve figuring out where all the controls are.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Standard CFD problems. It is an efficient modeling program to get to real answers quickly.
