Training on March 8

The main conference will be conducted on March 6 and 7.

The third day of the STAR Global Conference (Wednesday, March 8) is dedicated to learning! A whole day (8:00 to 17:00) of training, included in your registration fee, will be delivered by our expert training staff.

Attendees will be able to pick their favorite topics and design their own personal training day (EUR 600 value). Choose between 180-minute hands-on sessions or a combination of 90-minute lectures.

Training topics will include the whole range of the STAR-CCM+® software workflow, from meshing to data analysis, from various optimization examples to special applications.

Approaches to Design Exploration in CAE (hands-on)
Learn how to leverage your simulation models by using Optimate and HEEDS to fully explore the design space, understand parameter sensitivities, and get better designs, faster.

Meshing Best Practices (hands-on)
The first and often most critical step in the simulation process is to ensure that computational mesh accurately represents the geometry of your design using high quality cells. Our STAR-CCM+ experts will show you in a hands-on session how to create the best possible mesh using the wide variety of mesh options available in the software.


Approaches to Modeling Multiphase Flows (lecture style)
Learn how and when to introduce extra phases to your physics simulation in STAR-CCM+, whether gas, liquid or solid using Eulerian Multiphase and Discrete Element Modeling. Examples of applications are presented with detailed description of the model construction including tips and tricks.

CAD to Mesh (lecture style)
Dealing with imported CAD still represents one of the biggest hurdles to automated simulation. Learn tips and tricks from the experts and leverage the latest STAR-CCM+ functionality. Includes mesh import using the CAD clients.

Combustion (lecture style)
Learn how to use our complete range of reacting flow models including using detailed physics to account for gas-phase, surface and reaction chemistry.

E-Cooling (lecture style)
Presentation of approaches and techniques for electronic cooling analysis including guidance on the selection of the correct model and boundary conditions for your problems.The new electronics tool set will be leveraged in this training.

JAVA Programming for STAR-CCM+ (lecture style)
Bothered by repeating the same STAR-CCM+ setup over and over again? Learn how to construct your own Java™ code to automate STAR-CCM+ processes from geometry preparation, meshing, and setup. This session may include a small competition with a prize - more details later!

Advanced Post-processing in STAR-CCM+ (lecture style)
Master your data analysis tasks! Starting with an intro to understanding your graphics resources, we will walk through the essential considerations for effective Scientific Visualization, focusing on the use of color, transparency and lighting to create high impact illustrations of your work. We will also address data management challenges and describe how and when to use the latest visualization features in STAR-CCM+ and/or the STAR-View+ standalone viewer.

Overset Meshing (lecture style)
Modeling moving components in a simulation has never been easier! Learn how overset meshing is revolutionizing the simulation of problems that involve complex moving and interacting components.

Using Adjoint Methods in STAR-CCM+(lecture style)
One of the greatest challenges in engineering analysis is how to gain insight into how changes in geometry and operating conditions will affect your product's performance and this is where the advanced adjoint solver in STAR-CCM+ can help. See how sensitivity analysis can be deployed to not only understand your simulation better but also improve your design in an efficient manner.

Best Practices in Modeling Heat Transfer (lecture style)
Simulate convection, conduction, and radiation with confidence after completing this course. This session includes guidance on a selection of correct models and boundary conditions for your model, as well as tips on how to ensure your mesh is appropriate to solve it.

Improving Pump Performance with Optimization (lecture style)
This focused application session will demonstrate the power of design exploration as part of the product design process using a pump as the subject of the study with a focus on performance optimization. The optimization process is demonstrated for power requirement dependencies according to a range of geometries and physics conditions.

Turbulence Modeling (lecture style)
The solution of almost all fluid dynamics problems of practical importance requires accounting for the influence of turbulence correctly. Explore the full range of turbulence models, including transition modeling, and receive practical guidance on which models to use for which applications.

Fluid-Structure Interaction and Coupling Techniques (lecture style)
Coupling STAR-CCM+ to FE codes allows engineers to solve complex FSI problems with ease. The methodology will be demonstrated on several application examples, and best practices will be presented to guide engineers in their own FSI or coupling simulations.
