CD-adapco Introduces wave6 Aero-Vibro-Acoustic Product Line
New York and London. March 16, 2015
CD-adapco™, the largest privately held CFD-focused provider of Computer Aided Engineering software, today unveiled wave6, a new software product line for vibro-acoustic and aero-vibro-acoustic simulation. The new products will complement and extend the functionality of the company’s flagship simulation tool, STAR-CCM+®, to address flow-induced noise and vibration problems.
“Solving problems that involve flow-induced noise and vibration is of increasing importance to our customers. It is an application that crosses multiple disciplines and requires accurate simulation of both unsteady flow and the transmission of noise and vibration through large complex systems across a broad frequency range,” said Phil Shorter, Vice President, CD-adapco. “We developed wave6 from the ground up with a group of experts who truly understand the problems engineers face trying to work with older legacy codes.”
The wave6product line also focuses on usability and introduces new automated workflows to make advanced aero-vibro-acoustic analysis methods more readily accessible. The introduction of this release will be of benefit to existing STAR-CCM+ customers as well as a wider audience of vibro-acoustic clientele.
CD-adapco worked closely with leading industrial companies during the development of the wave6 product line to ensure that the new release is validated and tested. Following a comprehensive period of research and development spanning several calendar years, the company is releasing new state-of-the-art methods that leverage the strength of STAR-CCM+ and extend its functionality.
The combination of wave6 and STAR-CCM+ offers an exciting solution for engineers and designers who seek accuracy, reliability and flexibility in multi-disciplinary applications involving flow-induced noise and vibration.
