Waterproof testing is performed to determine water ingress and membrane failure due to spray impingement. This presentation will explain how STAR-CCM+ can provide a combination of multiphase modeling techniques which enabled virtual waterproof testing.
These models provide detailed quantitative information unavailable through experiments such as reduction in prototyping time and costs, and better understanding of the mechanisms involved. In addition, powerful VOF-LMP coupling will be available in upcoming Star-CCM + releases and would allow detailed characterization of nozzle flow. Transitioning to STAR-CCM+ has helped our team accelerate the model development and design iteration phases.
