CD-adapco™ Integrates STAR-CCM+® and SPEED™ to Provide Motor Design Engineers with an End-to-End Solution

The link between SPEED™ and STAR-CCM+® creates a total electric machine solution

NEW YORK and LONDON, May 27, 2014 /CNW/ - CD-adapco™, the largest privately held CFD-focused provider of Computer Aided Engineering software has integrated SPEED™ with STAR-CCM+®. SPEED™ is the leading electric machine design tool and STAR-CCM+® a powerful all in one tool that models heat transfer, fluid dynamics, structural stresses, electric and magnetic fields, and aero-acoustics that play important roles in many electric machine applications.

CD-adapco™ purchased the SPEED™ electric machine suite of programs in June 2011. SPEED™ performs a 2D magnetic design using both analytical equations and finite element analysis links (using PC-FEA, a 2D FE solver) for electric motors, generators, alternators, and other magnetic actuators. It also combines electronic drive models with the machine's magnetic design. STAR-CCM+® takes the SPEED™ simulation results, converts their 2D model into a 3D model and models the machine's thermal performance under a wide range of environmental conditions. STAR-CCM+® can also be used for the electromagnetic 2D calculations as the GoFER's to PC-FEA will be available for STAR-CCM+® using the 2D magnetic FV solver.

This design process creates a total electric machine solution. For further information about this comprehensive SPEED™ and STAR-CCM+® package, please contact Markus Anders at markus.anders@cd-adapco.com.
