The drive for excellence in this sometimes-hidden step between modeling and analysis.

This engine-compartment closeup of an AGCO tractor shows that all of the detail of the original CADmodel is retained for a PowerFLOW simulation of airflow management and cooling. It was not necessary to defeature for the simulation and the volume mesh was automatically generated. Image courtesy of Exa and AGCO.

If you remember anything from Finite Elements 101, it’s that successful design analysis includes creating a meaningful mesh. At a detailed level, analysts love to discuss the merits of shells versus solids and tet versus hex types. At the broader level, there are diverging approaches to the fundamental physics, and the needs of structural analysts differ from those analyzing fluid flow (meshing a surface/solid or the volume around it).

Defining the Problem
At COMSOL, Bernt Nilsson, senior VP of marketing, summarizes activity in the preprocessing arena. “The main challenge for the meshing community over the past years has been to develop tools that prepare the CAD model for efficient meshing. This includes both de-featuring operations that modify the underlying CAD model, often referred to as real operations, and tools for modifying an overlay topology on the original model, referred to as virtual operations.

VISTAGY’s New FiberSIM® 5.4 Software Delivers Optimized Composites Designs in Less Time

New FiberSIM® 5.4 software delivers optimized composites designs in a shorter period of time by enabling engineers to perform more design iterations later in the development process—which is essential to effectively evaluate tradeoffs between part performance, weight and manufacturing cost. The software improves the link between analysis and design and provides new tools to enable engineers to design for the specific manufacturing process. These key features make FiberSIM 5.4 the best-in-class tool for exploiting innovative uses of composite materials in products that never before made use of them.

ALGOR V22 Upgrades All Areas of FEA: Modeling, Simulation and Results PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 25 July 2008 16:51


ALGOR V22 software significantly upgrades all areas of FEA: modeling, simulation and results evaluation and presentation, providing users with increased power, flexibility and ease-of-use for simulating engineering analyses of their product designs. As shown here, new and improved features include: expanded support for 64-bit systems; open channel flow; a multifrontal massively parallel solver (MUMPS); damage analysis; remote loads; improved beam modeling; meshing improvements; mesh studies; enhanced tools for pressure vessel design; and the capability to display flow rate results.

PITTSBURGH, PA – July 23, 2008 – ALGOR, Inc., a leading provider of design, analysis and simulation software, announced that its latest, major finite element analysis (FEA) software release, ALGOR V22, significantly upgrades all areas of FEA – modeling, simulation and results evaluation and presentation.

New and improved features include: expanded support for 64-bit systems, now including pre-processing and post-processing, allows users to handle larger models faster than ever before; analysis of open channel flow, involving a free surface between a flowing fluid and a gas above it, such as marine systems, drainage systems and liquid column gauges; a multifrontal massively parallel solver (MUMPS) for distributed memory systems, which allows faster solution of linear and nonlinear stress and fluid flow models; damage analysis for 2-D plane stress elements, primarily intended for simulating damage onset and growth in fiber-reinforced composite materials; and a software wizard to automatically calculate and apply remote loads to a stress model, such as a torque load to simulate twisting.
