NEW YORK and LONDON, March 2, 2011 - CD-adapco is pleased to announce the release of STAR-CCM+ v6.02, the
latest version of its flagship multiphysics engineering simulation tool.
STAR-CCM+ v6.02 perfectly illustrates CD-adapco's purpose: to help customers
succeed through the application of engineering simulation: driving innovation
in its products AND reducing the time and cost associated with bringing those
products to market.

The latest version of STAR-CCM+ v6.02 is specifically designed to
increase our customers' innovation through the addition of new simulation
technologies, expanding its use into new applications, while increasing
productivity through improving existing simulation processes.

STAR-CCM+ v6.02 looks certain to overtake STAR-CCM+ v5.06 as the most
downloaded release in the CD-adapco's 30 year history, playing a pivotal role
in the continual growth of CD-adapco's presence in the CAE market. The secret
of STAR-CCM+'s success is simple, says Jean Claude Ercolanelli, Senior Vice
President Product Management: "We maintain a constant dialogue with our
customers, carefully observing new trends and challenges. Each new release of
STAR-CCM+ is a balance between fulfilling the requests of our customers, and
the introduction of new technology that expands the use of the software into
new industrial applications, such as battery design, and electro-deposition

"In its most fundamental form, success works on a personal level,
ensuring that individual engineers are able to deliver meaningful simulation
results on time and in a manner which can be used to influence the
engineering design process," continues Ercolanelli. "By listening to our
users, we are uniquely placed to understand the challenges they face. We
understand the importance of continually improving our software products to
make them increasingly accurate, efficient and easy to use."
