Autodesk has released the major first upgrade to the Algor FEA simulation tool since the company was acquired last December . The Algor V23.1 update expands a wide range of analysis and simulation capabilities, including additional modeling and FEA techniques along with improved support for multiple CAD tools.
Among the highlights of the new release are:
–Improved simulation of multi-part assemblies, giving users greater control over how to connect adjacent parts for a broader range of analysis types.
–Increased efficiency when simulating heat transfer, as part of a new library of common convection data, including properties for air and water over a range of temperatures.
–Additional tools for testing high-stress levels and well as the effects of long-term stress on a part.
–Improved collaboration in a multi-CAD environment.
