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.

Reduce approximation and increase the accuracy of your engineering simulation by accounting for all of the physics that influence the real-world behavior of your product.


Flow induced noise is a significant component of the acoustic signature of a vehicle (or other product). Simcenter  offers an extensive library of accurate models for predicting aeroacoustics noise sources, including: steady state models, direct models (DES/LES), propagation models and acoustic perturbation equations (APE) solver.

Fluid dynamics

The computational fluid dynamics (CFD) capability in Simcenter offers an efficient and accurate set of fluid dynamics models and solvers with excellent parallel performance and scalability. It provides a solid foundation for multidisciplinary design exploration.

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.

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 STAR-CCM+ is the first commercial engineering simulation tool to include a DEM capability that is fully coupled with numerical flow simulation.

Reacting flow

Simcenter provides insight into the interactions between turbulent flow field and underlying chemistry of reacting flows, helping you improve the trade-off between the performance and emissions of your device for different operating conditions.
