Basic Training STAR-CCM+

STAR-CCM+ is a powerful and widely used tool for Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and multiphysics simulation, including advanced capabilities like complex multiphase flow, reacting flow and electromagnetism.

This three-day introductory course provides an introduction to CFD simulation with STAR-CCM+. It includes some basics of numerical fluid mechanics, essential topics like mesh generation, typical physics models and guidelines for quality assessment, as well as a thorough introduction to the workflow inside STAR-CCM+. After the course, the participants will be familiar with the use of STAR-CCM+ and should able to tackle their own CFD problems.

Basic knowledge of engineering simulation, e.g. in structural mechanics or maybe even in CFD with other tools, is advantageous but not required. This course is meant for everyone who has not used STAR-CCM+ before, or has not been using it for a long time, and / or for everyone who has little to no experience with CFD.

The course is designed to provide a lot of hands-on experience. Theory is presented in lectures, but most of the time, participants work by themselves on training examples while being guided and supported by the trainer. All hands-on examples are well documented and explained step-by-step, and the full documentation is made available to the participants.
