Engineer innovation with CFD- focused multiphysics simulation

To accurately predict real-world performance of your product you need simulation tools that capture all of the physics that will influence its performance during its operational life, including those that cross the boundaries of traditional engineering disciplines. To improve your product you need to be able to predict how performance changes in response to multiple parametric design changes.

Simcenter STAR-CCM+ is a complete multiphysics solution for the simulation of products and designs operating under real-world conditions. Uniquely, Simcenter STAR-CCM+ brings automated design exploration and optimization to the simulation toolkit of every engineer, allowing you to efficiently explore the entire design space instead of focusing on single point design scenarios.

The additional insight gained by using Simcenter STAR-CCM+ to guide your design process ultimately leads to more innovative products that exceed customer expectations.


Couple to other simulation tools through dedicated interfaces, or an intuitive API. This enables the multi-physics simulations with different time scales ranging from microseconds to thousands of seconds, providing faster and more accurate analyses and shorter turnover times for development and assessment of complex designs

Predict real world performance using CFD-focused multiphysics

Fluid dynamics simulation

Since the real-world performance of your product depends on how it interacts with fluids, either gases, liquids or a combination of both, you need to predict how those fluids behave, and to be ale to turn their influence to your product’s advantage.

Simcenter provides industry leading computational fluid dynamics software that allows you to simulate almost any engineering problem that involves the fluids, structures and all of the associated physics.

Simulate lean and dense gas-solid as well as solids only flow.

Particle Flows

The discrete element method (DEM) can be used to simulate the motion of a large number of interacting discrete objects (particles), such as the granular flow of aggregates, food particles, metal powders, tablets and capsules, and wheat or grass. Simcenter is the first commercial engineering simulation tool to include a DEM capability that is fully coupled with numerical flow simulation.

Comprehensive suite to model real world multiphase flows

Multiphase Flow

Accurately representing the physical behavior of the different fluid and solid phases is key to capturing the real-world performance of your product. Simcenter offers a variety of both Eulerian and Lagrangian modeling capabilities to suit your simulation needs.

Real-world engineering problems cover multiple flow regimes across stratified, dispersed, discrete, films, etc. To date, there is no single multiphase model that can cover all regimes, however, Simcenter provides a comprehensive range of models which can be used together to cover many flow regimes including the transitions between them. Predict and understand real-world behavior of your products by simulating multi-regime, multi-scale multiphase flows.

Simulate a broad range of physics and motions all within a single environment.

Moving Objects

Within a single environment, Simcenter empowers users to simulate not only a broad range of physics but also a broad range of body and mesh motions to accurately capture your physics. With our motion models, you can simulate real-world performance of moving, overlapping objects with overset meshing, predict dynamic 6-DOF motion of bodies, understand multi-physics interactions to model performance ‘as installed’, easily drive geometric changes for design exploration, easily predict rotating/translating machine behavior and define sophisticated motions to accurately replicate machine operations.
