Algor's Release 12 automatically compares your input against allowable low- or high-value limits as you enter the data. This live data-checking feature alerts the user if a value is unreasonable and prevents errors during subsequent finite element analysis. The new release also focuses on ease-of-use with such features as an improved FEA data entry interface, pull-down lists that eliminate possible typing errors, and the need to reference separate documentation. In addition, the effects of liquids can be simulated using "hydrodynamic finite elements" in a Mechanical Event Simulation. Assemblies having several components, such as an automobile front-suspension assembly, are importable as a single model, and engineers can perform a mechanical event simulation of a model with several components at the same time.
