STAR-Cast

ACCESS e.V. and CD-adapco developed the new casting simulation software STAR-Cast, based on a comprehensive and fully coupled computational continuum mechanics approach. STARCAST provides a multiphase mould filling module - liquid, solid and gaseous - with the full range of computational fluid dynamics features of CD-adapco's flagship CFD code, STAR-CD: including conjugate heat transfer, a sharp resolution of the filling front, free-surface fragmentation, motion of trapped gas bubbles in melt, natural convection in melt and gas. Access contributes: 20 years experience in casting simulation, Casting specific GUI and material database, Casting specific result analysis. CD-adapco contributes: Many years experience in the computational fluid dynamics simulation, STAR-CD V4, a very fast VoF-flow-solver, with solidification in the solidified region, STAR-CCM+, very powerful mesher and postprocessor.

Special feature of STAR-Cast are: Theoretical basis: Capabilities of STAR-Cast:
