I have 11 years experience in CFD as a consultant, R&D manager and Founder of a cloud computing service dedicated to CFD. I am a CFD heat transfer, multi-phase, optimization and automation expert. I use Siemens STAR-CCM+.
My CV: (hidden)
I have 24/7 access to:
-Siemens support engineers.
-a 100,000 cores supercomputer. I just run a job on 7,000 cores with excellent scaling.
-a full commercial STAR-CCM+ unlimited cores licence.
STAR-CCM+ is the best CFD software at the moment. Most manufacturers worldwide use STAR-CCM+ (see: (hidden) . This slide is from a presentation by Siemens CEO explaining why Siemens bought CD-adapco last year).
STAR-CCM+ also enables the whole CFD workflow to be automated in one script, and it also makes optimization trivial using the SHERPA algorithm (see p.36 of : (hidden) Combined with the supercomputer, I can do optimization studies in a fraction of the time it would take other freelancers.
I share all my results in real time with my clients though a synchronised folder and CFD 3D viewer. That's great for project communication and progress tracking. Most importantly, you build a solid understanding of your application.
I've just started as a freelancer. My hourly rates are 4 times lower than established consultants with the same experience, software, licencing and computing power.
I’d love to discuss your project further. Give me a call!
