See how our customers have been using STAR-CCM+ to generate design improvements and stay ahead of the innovation race.
Designed with STAR-CCM+: Joby Aviation Electric Vehicle
“Joby Aviation's unconventional aircraft designs benefit from an unusual degree of coupling between the propulsion and airframe design; however, this coupling complicates the analysis, since low-order tools are not powerful enough and statistical methods are less useful due to the lack of significant historical data. For these reasons, STAR-CCM+ has been an extremely valuable component of our design and analysis toolkit” - Alex Stoll, Joby Aviation
DNV GL saves APL $30 million in fuel cost per year through hydrodynamic hull optimization
“CFD is like a virtual towing tank. We can make as many modifications as necessary and immediately see what consequences it will have on other areas of the design.” - Tor Svenson, President, DNV-GL
“Our goal was to produce a 30% improvement in overall efficiency. We achieved 36%.” - Shan U Thayil, Director, APL
“We are always waiting for the next release, because we know that in that release, there is something valuable for us. We can actually make an enhancement request on the Steve Portal and after one year or so, the capability we asked for is implemented in STAR-CCM+. Amazing, they listen to us!” - Simone Ferrari, Bottero S.p.A.
