Four Major Modeling Process Phase 1 – Working out a modeling strategy Phase 1 – Working out a modeling strategy Phase 2 – Preprocessing - Setting up the flow model using PROSTAR Phase 2 – Preprocessing - Setting up the flow model using PROSTAR Phase 3 – Solver - Performing the flow analysis using STAR Phase 3 – Solver - Performing the flow analysis using STAR Phase 4 – Post-processing the results using PROSTAR Phase 4 – Post-processing the results using PROSTAR

11
Phase 1 – Working out a Modeling Strategy Planning the computational mesh Planning the computational mesh Looking up numerical values for appropriate physical parameters Looking up numerical values for appropriate physical parameters Choosing the most suitable modeling option from what is available. Choosing the most suitable modeling option from what is available.

12
Phase 2 – Setting Up the Flow Model Using Prostar Creating a computational mesh to represent the flow domain. Creating a computational mesh to represent the flow domain. Specifying the thermophysical properties of the fluids and/or solids. Specifying the thermophysical properties of the fluids and/or solids. Setting the solution parameters and output data formats. Setting the solution parameters and output data formats. Specifying the location and definition of boundaries and time increment. Specifying the location and definition of boundaries and time increment. Writing appropriate data files. Writing appropriate data files.

13
Phase 3 – Performing the Flow Analysis Using Prostar Reading input data created by Prostar and, if dealing with a restart run, the results of a previous run. Reading input data created by Prostar and, if dealing with a restart run, the results of a previous run. Judging the progress of the run by analysing various monitoring data and solution statistics provided by STAR. Judging the progress of the run by analysing various monitoring data and solution statistics provided by STAR.

21
Concept of Set Every command or action in STAR-CD only affects elements in a set. Before you give a command, you ’ d better select the elements which you want to modify. Every command or action in STAR-CD only affects elements in a set. Before you give a command, you ’ d better select the elements which you want to modify. The range of a set can be checked via “ List ” in Prostar. The range of a set can be checked via “ List ” in Prostar.

22
When set is used? Plot results Plot results Establish model Establish model Check model Check model Post-processing Post-processing

23
Common sets cset: Cell set cset: Cell set vset: Vertex set vset: Vertex set bset: Boundary set bset: Boundary set splset: Spline set splset: Spline set Blkset: Block set Blkset: Block set
