• In this presentation, we will demonstrate strategies for optimizing workflows within STAR-CCM+—ensuring you can harness the tool's full potential and elevate your proficiency as a simulation engineer. Examples include the simulation of conjugate heat transfer in an electric propeller motor, the exploration of multi-phase combustion in recovery boilers, and the application of dispersion analysis for data center campuses.


    Daimler Truck is the latest market leader to invest in simulation software from the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio. Daimler has invested in Simcenter software tools in order to optimize aerodynamic performance as well as energy management for next generation vehicles.

  • The Sea Blade hull is one of the most successful surface ship programs from PacMar Technologies. A re-imagining of the classic deep V hull, its unique hull form is different from any other hull on the market. However, without the company’s use of CFD simulation, the Sea Blade hull design never would have been developed.

  • The presentation/Live Demo includes a general overview of the Simcenter3D file structure, Geometry preparation, and meshing with multiple types of elements and connections.

  • In this on-demand webinar, we present an overview of Simcenter STAR-CCM+, provide case studies of how it has helped clients, and show how it can help your business achieve success.

    Now available on-demand. This presentation was initially held on 10/20/21.


    Realize LIVE is the biggest annual conference for Siemens Digital Industries Software in North America. Join Applied CAx (at booth #602)and the Siemens Software community at Realize LIVE this June to learn from some of the world's best innovators and changer-makers. 

  • STAR-CCM+ offers a wide array of methods for importing and manipulating geometry to begin the analysis. There are tools available for direct importation of geometry to repair, defeature, and extract volumes of interest. The most powerful tool comes from the utilization of the 3D-CAD to establish bi-directional connectivity between the CAD model and simulation. By defining a parameterized CAD model and automating meshing operations, STAR-CCM+ can quickly and efficiently explore the design space.

    This online seminar provides an introduction into building and importing geometry within STAR-CCM+. We will look at how to handle surface mesh data which may lack any CAD description and how to manipulate CAD geometry to defeature and extract a fluid volume. Last, we will look at building parameterized CAD models and using the meshing toolbox to automate volume extraction and meshing.

  • This article explores how front-loading computational fluid dynamics (CFD) early in the design process can reduce development time and costs. Traditionally, CFD is limited to validating finished CAD, but early integration allows hundreds of rapid simulations to create better concepts.

  • What Applied CAx clients say about our Simcenter Support


    Stratolaunch logo

    Adrian and Applied CAx consistently get back to me within a few hours with helpful tips or insights. Engineers know that you can't extend a deadline because your FEA support was late in getting back to you. This is why I truly appreciate the level of support Applied CAx provides... They are an excellent resource and I’m glad to have their support.

  • In this presentation, we demonstrate a practical use case of leveraging the Xcelerator Portfolio of products to connect the digital thread from concept design through engineering. It will show requirements and parameter development in Teamcenter, connecting those requirements and parameters into System Modeling Workbench for concept architecture design and then connecting those same parameters into NX/Simcenter for detail design and verification.
