Building HVAC and Thermal Comfort with Simcenter STAR-CCM+ and Simcenter Amesim

How does one best design a system intended for ventilating, heating, and cooling a room, a floor, or an entire building? Which components should be used, and how should these be dimensioned to efficiently control the indoor climate when subjected to both internal and external heat sources. The questions raised here are fairly typical throughout […]

The Functional Mock-up Interface and FMUs for Co-Simulation and Model Export

In this week’s blog post we have a closer look at the inner workings of the Functional Mock-up Interface (FMI) and focus our attention on what the standard entails and how it can be leveraged for a more all-encompassing analysis. Throughout this article, dynamic system simulation models from Simcenter Amesim are used as examples on

Marine Co-Simulation using Simcenter STAR-CCM+ and Simcenter Amesim

In this week’s post we will go through an interesting simulation case carried out by coupling Simcenter STAR-CCM+ together with Simcenter Amesim. In this marine scenario, Simcenter STAR-CCM+ provides the detailed dynamics of a Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB) moving through rough sea, whereas system simulation provides the boat’s electric propulsion and control system. Additionally, an

Simcenter Amesim – Embedded CFD

The simulation fidelity of Simcenter STAR-CCM+, close to Simcenter Amesim simulation times, and this at an early design stage too? Essentially the Holy Grale of Co-simulation. Is it possible? Well, the answer is, as with most things in engineering, that it depends. Embedded CFD in Simcenter Amesim aims to cover a middle ground between one-dimensional
