Finite element analysis software now features CFD and simulation

NAFEMS : 04 January, 2007  (New Product)
Algor's latest finite element analysis software release, Algor V19.2, features all-new enhancements for Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and Mechanical Event Simulation.


New features include:




  • Modelling flow obstacles as distributed resistance parts, which can greatly simplify 3-D modelling;


  • Surface-to-surface contact options (slide/no bounce contact and tied contact) for more realistic simulation and faster solving of MES applications such as a press-fit process;


  • Faster, industry-standard sparse solvers for linear dynamic analysis, static stress analysis and MES;


  • Distributed memory processing for 32- and 64-bit Linux (Red Hat) for static stress analysis and MES.



These and many more new V19.2 features provide increased power, flexibility and ease-of-use for simulating engineering analyses of product designs. “V19.2's modelling, meshing and solver enhancements provide significant speed and productivity gains, especially in the area of CFD,” said Jim Wheeler, Manager of Mechanical Design of RBI Canada 2000. “I meshed and analysed a complex, highly turbulent 3D fluid flow model that I had originally studied using a previous version of Algor software. With V19.2, setup and solution time was three times faster.”



“The new temperature-dependent anisotropic material properties in Algor V19.2 allow us, for the first time, to evaluate thermally-induced stresses in resonant structures made with piezoelectric materials,' said Dr Errol P EerNisse, Vice President of Quartzdyne, Inc in Salt Lake City, Utah. “Furthermore, the addition of user-defined functions in Superview gives us the opportunity to more accurately calculate and evaluate several important characteristics of our sensors. Two examples are stress-induced frequency shifts and internal energy changes in our resonators in the presence of applied pressure and temperature.”



“Looking ahead, our upcoming V20 software release will be a major update, which will feature a new overall look and feel to Fempro, our easy-to-use, single user interface. V20 will also include extensive additions to our modelling, meshing, analysis and presentation tools, as well as many other enhancements,” said Algor Product Manager, Bob Williams.
