STARS is a multidisciplinary, finite element-based, graphics oriented, linear and nonlinear analysis tool. Its range of application includes structural analysis, heat transfer, linear aerodynamics, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) as well as coupled linear and CFD-based aeroelastic, aeroacoustics, aerothermoelastic-acoustics, and aeroservoelastic analysis.
