New Software: ALGOR V19.2 Features Improved CFD
Posted Tue July 04, 2006 @02:45PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News ALGOR, Inc. announced that its latest software release, ALGOR V19.2, features all-new enhancements for computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and Mechanical Event Simulation (MES). New features include the capability to model flow obstacles as distributed resistance parts, which can greatly simplify 3-D modeling; new 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; and 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 ALGOR users with increased power, flexibility and ease-of-use for simulating engineering analyses of their product designs.

Print version Email story Tweet story
ANSYS FLUENT Fluent Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of ANSYS, Inc., a global innovator of simulation software and technologies designed to optimize product development processes, today announced new releases of TGrid 4.0, GAMBIT 2.3 and 3Matic-for-Fluent 1.0, all major upgrades to Fluent’s preprocessing capabilities. These three products provide several new functionality advantages that enable Fluent users to proceed from CAD geometries to Fluent CFD solvers in unprecedented timescales.

TGrid 4.0 has been substantially improved, with a powerful Surface Wrapper added to its existing surface and volume meshing capabilities. Users can now wrap up multiple dirty geometry files from several sources into single, connected, high-quality surface mesh in record times. A number of automated functions are available to optimize the process, depending on the problem at hand.

Print version Email story Tweet story
ANSYS FLUENT Fluent is offering an advanced TGrid 4.0 course for general TGrid users who are interested in meshing complicated geometry. The program will have an automotive focus, however, it is open to all TGrid clients. Attendees must have completed TGrid introductory training and it is recommended that they have at least one year of experience using the software.

Attendees can expect to learn the TGrid 4.0 wrapper as well as general tips and tricks through lectures and hands-on tutorials.

This course will be offered on August 7, 2006 and September 13, 2006.
