DARS is a stand alone tool for 0D-1D analyses of chemical processes in industrial and scientific devices.
DARS CFD is an efficient 0-D solver capable of handling gas phase kinetics and surface reactions. It includes many chemical kinetic models tailored for specific conditions and for particular chemical species, and handles both gas phase chemistry, surface chemistry and soot modeling. DARS includes several reactor tools for use with the chemical models. DARS-CFD is fully integrated with both STAR-CD and STAR-CCM+
DARS Fuel contains advanced fuel libraries and reaction mechanisms for detailed chemistry modeling in conjunction with DARS Reactive Flow Models. Plug in to STAR-CD, STAR-CCM+.
Taken together with the other in-built tools for simulating combustion and chemical reactions, STAR-CCM+ offers a comprehensive set of solutions for reaction modeling.
Optimate allows for automatic search and optimization using STAR-CCM+, giving users the ease of "click-once-and-done".
Optimization Mode (Optimate+)
Optimate+ is an add-on to Optimate that adds the capability to perform automated design optimization studies using the SHERPA algorithm from Red Cedar, providing the required efficiency for optimization with complex CFD simulation. Once the design variables, parameters and optimization goals are set, the process is fully automatic inside STAR-CCM+ without any need for scripting and allowing engineers to focus on the design aspects of the product.
Design Exploration Mode (Optimate)
In this mode, Optimate can be used for design exploration studies like aero loads database, compressor maps and test replications automatically by simply setting up an initial simulation and allowing Optimate to do the rest of the work. Optimate will automatically set-up and submit jobs for all designs in the exploration space and collect and organize simulation results.
Multidisciplinary Design Optimization Software
HEEDS® MDO automates the design optimization process. With revolutionary search strategies available only in HEEDS, you can uncover new design concepts that improve products and significantly reduce development costs. Even engineers with very little design optimization experience can use HEEDS MDO to discover optimal designs — in a fraction of the time it would take to perform even a handful of manual iterations.
