SDA Software recognizes the difficulties encountered by engineering companies and offers software solutions to assist them. Allow us to eliminate the obstacles in your path by enabling you to convert your challenges into a seamless solution. Our advanced multiphysics CFD bundle including Simcenter STAR-CCM+ is available at a significant discount, empowering you to achieve industry-leading results. Simcenter STAR-CCM+ is a multiphysics computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation software that enables CFD engineers to model complexity and explore the possibilities of products operating under real-world conditions.

Simcenter STAR-CCM+ Cloud Licensing

For preprocessing, meshing and post-processing

It has the following advantages:

  • Finite number of hours to use on an annual basis
  • Unlimited number of your cores you would like to use in each sim
  • Unlimited number of sessions
  • License administration is run remotely on a Siemens server via an internet connection
  • You manage your own keys – this allows your team to create, monitor, and set expiration criteria for each key you create based on the number of hours allowed in the license or date for each key

How does this cloud-based license work?

When a simulation is opened on your local machine for any reason, the system starts drawing from the pool of hours till the time the simulation is closed. This hour consumption is INDEPENDENT of the number of cores.

For example, 1 simulation run on 1 core VS 1 simulation run with 1000 cores both consume hours at the same rate. Also note that everything with the simulation (the interface, meshing, running, etc.) is still operating locally on your machine, the cloud licensing system is just used to check out the licensing from the Siemens servers.

Solve on AWS cloud infrastructure using Simcenter Cloud HPC​

Run CFD simulations on the cloud using AWS infrastructure

Configured and managed by Siemens, with no additional setup needed.

Running CFD simulations in the cloud provides enhanced flexibility and scalability compared to on-premise solutions. Utilizing third-party cloud providers demands substantial setup time and expertise. However, by employing Simcenter STAR-CCM+ on the cloud with Simcenter Cloud HPC*, users can effortlessly access AWS infrastructure, ensuring a seamless experience. A specified number of Credits will allow full use of Simcenter STAR-CCM+ on a fixed number of compute cores.

*Simcenter Cloud HPC only supports Simcenter STAR-CCM+ version 2210 mixed prevision. Mixed precision is fine for most CFD applications. Some applications where double precision should always be used include the following: aeroacoustics, battery modeling, electrodynamics simulations, and multiphase flows. Design manager and Co-simulation are not supported.

Meet Ted Blowe, one of our expert engineers

Ted Blowe is an CFD Application Engineer at SDA Software primarily working with STAR-CCM+. Before joining SDA Software, Ted worked as a Simulation Engineer for two years and a mechanical engineering for three years. At Orano, Ted was responsible for engineering analysis, mechanical design, and fabrication of equipment used in handling, transportation, and storage of radioactive materials. Ted received an M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Texas A&M University, with a master's thesis investigated fluid dynamics and single-phase heat transfer characteristics for turbulent flows around nuclear fuel assemblies with complex split-type mixing vane grids using STAR-CCM+ CFD software.
