Templates for Simcenter

Here are some helpful template documents and files that you can use with the Simcenter suite from Siemens. These resources will aid you in achieving optimal performance and maximum efficiency. 

Volupe templates

At this page you find our template files, which hopefully will be good starting files for your simulations within each field:

  • Template Simcenter STAR-CCM+ get started, v2306
  • Template for estimating porous baffle resistance coefficients for wire grids
  • Template for Lagrangian particle (LMP) simulations
  • Template for Eulerian multiphase (EMP) simulations

Template Simcenter STAR-CCM+ get started, v2306
The gif below shows how to start a new simulation using the template and how to open the simulation guide with instructions.
This template can be used to save time when setting up a new simulation. Amongst other things it comprises two predefined continua that Volupe has identified as the most frequently used. It also comprises a parameterized geometry part of a pipe that can be used for a test simulation. If you would like to change and use another part in your simulation, the template contains some filtering based on naming to speed up the setup time.
If you have any questions please contact support@volupe.com.
