Simcenter STAR-CCM+ is a multiphysics computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software for the simulation of products operating under real-world conditions. Simcenter STAR-CCM+ uniquely brings automated design exploration and optimization to the CFD simulation toolkit of every engineer. The single integrated environment includes everything from CAD, automated meshing, multiphysics CFD, sophisticated postprocessing, and design exploration. This allows engineers to efficiently explore the entire design space to make better design decisions faster.


The additional insight gained by using Simcenter STAR-CCM+ to guide your design process ultimately leads to more innovative products that exceed customer expectations.

Much more than a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) code, STAR-CCM+ is a best-in-class simulation tool that pro-vides the most comprehensive set of physics models of any industrial Com-puter Aided Engineering (CAE) tool. By adopting a compromise free approach to physics modelling, you will have confidence that your predictions match the real-world behavior of your product across its full operating envelope.

StarCCM+ Capabilities

The integrated multiphysics nature of STAR-CCM+ eliminates the need to learn and connect multiple tools and enables physical phenomena to be studied in a fully coupled manner, increasing the accuracy of your results. The single integrated user interface helps you cover your complete applica-tion scope with,

  • A broad range of validated models to simulate disciplines and physics including CFD, computational solid mechanics (CSM), electromagnetics, heat transfer, multiphase flow, particle dynamics, reacting flow, electrochemistry, aero-acoustics and rheology
  • Simulation of rigid and flexible body motions with techniques including mesh morphing, overset mesh and six degrees of freedom (6DOF) motionRealism through multiphysics
  • The ability to combine and account for the interaction between the vari-ous physics and motion models in a single simulation to cover your spe-cific application

Benefits of using StarCCM+

  • Enables users to predict real-world performance earlier in the design cycle
  • Reduces time-to-market and costly failures
  • Improves realism and accuracy by providing a wide range of physics in a seamless, single integrated user interface
