Algor V18 features expanded capabilities for linear-static stress analysis (optimized for 64-bit operating systems) and mechanicalevent simulation.
New material models include Arruda-Boyce and Blatz-Ko, for hyperelastics. Existing models include Mooney-Rivlin, Ogden, and Hyperfoam finitestrain viscoelastic materials. Fluidflow analysis models the fluid medium and has a new segregate steady solver for faster runtimes.
Results now draw on isosurfaces with colored, 3D streamlines and particle tracking with size control. And results can be exported to VRML files. The software can also read surfaces and materials directly from SolidWorks.
