PITTSBURGH, PA - January 18, 2006
ALGOR, Inc., a leading provider of design, analysis and simulation software, announced that its latest finite element analysis (FEA) software release, ALGOR V19, features all-new expanded support for 64-bit Microsoft Windows® and 32- and 64-bit Red Hat® Linux® operating systems for all analysis types.
V19 also features boundary layer meshing for accurately simulating flow around a fluid boundary and new results evaluation capabilities including export to the HOOPS Stream File (HSF) format for sharing visualization data with other engineering applications. These and many more new V19 features provide ALGOR users with increased power, flexibility and ease-of-use for simulating engineering analyses of their product designs.
"Previous releases have supported 64-bit Windows for linear static stress analysis," said ALGOR Product Manager, Bob Williams. "Now, V19 expands our multi-platform support, allowing users to apply the power and speed of 64-bit Windows and 32- and 64-bit Red Hat Linux operating systems to all ALGOR analysis types including static stress and Mechanical Event Simulation (MES) with linear and nonlinear material models, linear dynamics, steady-state and transient heat transfer, steady and unsteady fluid flow, electrostatics and full multiphysics. Our next release will support 64-bit UNIX workstations and future releases will support distributed processing."
"I'm very excited about running ALGOR V19 on my new 64-bit Linux Compaq Presario PC," said Bob Turney of TIW Corporation in Houston, Texas. "V19's multi-platform support is greatly increasing my productivity, particularly for computationally intensive analyses such as nonlinear MES and multiphysics."
"With ALGOR V19's new export capability for the HSF format, I can quickly and conveniently share analysis results visualization data with my clients," said Marc Meadows of Meadows Analysis and Design, LLC in Fort Worth, Texas. "All I have to do is export the model to the HSF format and then I can post the file on my web site and let my clients take a look at it in their engineering applications that support the OpenHSF initiative."
ALGOR V19 also includes:
o CAD Support (Direct)
o Direct CAD/CAE data exchange with Rhinoceros®
o Ability to run an analysis on a remote computer
o Improved tetrahedral-element meshing for fluid flow analysis
