CD-adapco has announced the release of DARS v2.12, its simulation tool for the 0D and 1D management and analysis of chemical reactions. The new release focuses on boosting throughput when exploring new fuel blends under a wide range of operating conditions. The fuel libraries generated with DARS v2.12 can then be used to source combustion analysis carried out with STAR-CD and STAR-CCM+
“All of our products are developed to help engineers make the right decisions early in the design cycle. DARS v2.12 enables our customers to predict combustion, chemical processes and emission formation from the earliest stage of the design process, without necessarily having to resort to experimental testing,” said Jean-Claude Ercolanelli, senior VP of Product Management, CD-adapco. “This release is devoted to enhancing the productivity of our customers, to accelerate their design decision process and to remove all obstacles for innovating.”
The new release, which is now available on the Steve Portal, makes customers more competitive through the software’s enhanced capabilities for productivity. The release removes the requirement for HPC licenses. The analysis of combustion characteristics for different fuels and generation of combustion libraries can now be efficiently performed on any number of CPUs with a single DARS license. The workflow from DARS to STAR-CD and STAR-CCM+ has also been improved. Users benefit now from fully compatible ECFM-CleH libraries and automatic interpolation for ECFM-TKI and ECFM-ClEH libraries, decreasing the need for manual re-calculations.
