Three case studies on STAR-CCM+

cDynamics is a small consultancy company with with employees. We work with specialized projects within general numerical analysis, CFD and FEA, mostly directed towards marine, offshore and aquaculture industry.

Test exploration

MBDA Systems are subjected to very high dynamic loadings under severe environments (temperature, humidity, vibration,…).

The aim was to assess the feasibility of the use of a cold spray torch to reproduce a unsteady pressure template representative of our applications.

Relevant test conditions are based on STAR-CCM+® multi variable analysis.

Comparison between simulations and measurements for different unsteady pressure sensor technologies has allowed to validate STAR-CCM+ modeling.

Ice accretion aerodynamics simulation

The engineering problem is the estimation of the ice mass on an aircraft during critical flight conditions. The study has been focused on the ice accretion phenomenon on an airfoil in different weather conditions involving different ice shapes and different aerodynamics impacts.
