Porous baffles within Simcenter STAR-CCM+

Welcome to the first Volupe blog post of this year, this week we will look deeper into porous baffles. A porous baffle is a lumped model used to model and simulate flow through a thin porous geometry, for example a perforated plate, porous membrane or a wire screen. A porous baffle is two dimensional (no thickness) which means that neither the geometry nor the flow inside the thin porous geometry is resolved. By setting appropriate porous baffle …

Filling a candy jar with the Swedish Christmas caramel knäck – meshfree DEM particles video tutorial and contest

All of our Swedish blog readers have most probably tasted “knäck”. Knäck is a very popular Swedish Christmas toffee/caramel and the name translates into “crack” and refers to its hard consistency. But few have tried to simulate the process of filling a candy jar with knäck using DEM-particles, and probably even fewer using a mesh-free …

Coupled solver settings in Simcenter STAR-CCM+

This week in the Volupe blog we would like to discuss settings for the coupled solver. From our customers we have got the feedback that the coupled solver is needing a lot of manual set up, and that it can be difficult setting up a simulation that provide results which agree with expected values. We would therefore like to provide some information about how the coupled solver works, and also inform about two features that might …
