Computational fluid dynamics analysis using STAR-CD*
Jobs/day normalized as 1.0 to Intel® Xeon® processor X3380
Benchmark description for STAR-CD*
STAR-CD* provides a platform for industrial CFD simulation. Going beyond just a CFD code, the latest release, STAR-CD V4, introduces the capability to perform structural analysis calculations using a methodology based upon its CFD solver technology, a comprehensive solution for flow, thermal and stress simulation has been available in a single general-purpose commercial finite-volume code. STAR-CD V4 is fully polyhedra enabled and by using the latest polyhedra-solver technology, STAR-CD V4 delivers significant benefits in speed, robustness and usability. Workloads for STAR-CD (A-class, C-class): The key workloads for STAR-CD benchmark are A-Class and C-Class. The A-class (resp. C-class) workloads simulate the turbulent, steady-state flow around an A-Class (resp. C-class) Mercedes* car. Both workloads use the Conjugate Gradient Solver. A-class uses a trimmed hexahedral mesh made of 6 million cells while C-class uses a polyhedral mesh of 10 million cells
