Adaptive Mesh Refinement in Simcenter STAR-CCM+

August 11, 2021

Adaptive Mesh Refinement (AMR) in Simcenter STAR-CCM+ is a dynamic and automated method that refines or coarsens the mesh as the solution develops. This method allows you to accurately solve a simulation with less cells, thus decreasing run time and getting results faster.


AMR is compatible with a wide range of physics in STAR-CCM+, including reacting flow, compressible flow, VOF, and overset mesh.

In this brief STAR-CCM+ video presentation, Clay Hearn, PhD, Senior Staff Mechanical Engineer at Applied Cax, will walk through an overview of AMR in Simcenter STAR-CCM+. This technique is simple and very powerful to enable within STAR-CCM+ to efficiently obtain accurate results quicker.
