Much more than just a CFD code, STAR-CCM+ is a complete multidisciplinary platform for the simulation of products and designs operating under real-world conditions.

The discrete element method (DEM) can be used to simulate the motion of a large number of interacting discrete objects (particles), such as the granular flow of aggregates, food particles, metal powders, tablets and capsules, and wheat or grass. STAR-CCM+ is the first commercial engineering simulation tool to include a DEM capability that is fully coupled with numerical flow simulation.
STAR-CCM+ offers both finite volume (FV)-based computational fluid dynamics and finite element (FE)-based computational solid mechanics (CSM) in an easy-to-use single integrated user interface. This allows engineers to expand their simulation scope to include fluid-structure and fluid-thermal-stress interactions.
Significantly improving a battery design across its whole operating range is a challenging task, and involves the simultaneous optimization of numerous parameters. Together with Battery Design Studio, STAR-CCM+ provides a complete simulation environment for the analysis and design of the electrochemical system and detailed geometry of individual battery cells.
