Two day online introduction course in Simcenter STAR-CCM+

Last summer I oversaw the creation of a two-day introduction course in Simcenter STAR-CCM+. The course was held at the Volupe office in Gothenburg. Considering the current situation in the world where travel is heavily restricted and people gathering is politely dissuaded, we at Volupe are now offering the same course online. The first series of online lectures were given this week, with success.

The course prerequisites are some CFD knowhow and engineering background. What you can expect from the course is to learn the basic usage of Simcenter STAR-CCM+. After you finished this course you will be able to create, handle and perform simulations on your geometry. You will be aware of typical CFD challenges and know how to use the inherent tools within the software to create, handle and perform simulations on your geometry. The course agenda can be found bellow:


Day 1

  • Introduction and presentations
  • CFD in general
  • Starting STAR-CCM+
  • Creating a 3D-CAD model
  • Workshop 1: Sketching 3D-CAD model
  • Geometry preparation
  • Workshop 2: Surface Wrapper
  • Meshing
  • Workshop 3: Meshing


Day 2 (9:00 to 16:30)

  • Boundary Conditions
  • Solver method and turbulence model
  • Solver settings
  • Monitoring
  • Post Processing
  • Simulation handling
  • Workshop 4: Full method
  • Tools
  • Transient simulations
  • Workshop 5: Transient with motion

The course currently has no set dates but will be held upon request. Please do not hesitate to contact me for more information at or
