NEW YORK and LONDON, March 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- 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.
