ALGOR


ALGOR

ALGOR is a general-purpose multiphysics finite element analysis software package developed by ALGOR Incorporated for use on the Microsoft Windows and Linux computer operating systems. It is distributed in a number of different core packages to cater to specifics applications, such as mechanical event simulation and computational fluid dynamics.

ALGOR is used by many scientists and engineers worldwide. [ [http://algor.com/service_support/customer/default.asp About Us - Featured Customers ] ] It has found application in aerospace [J. B. Binder, " [http://adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/1995AeAm...33...16B Algor finite element modeling tools aid aerospace] ", "Aerospace America", vol. 33, no. 5, 1995.] , and it has received many favorable reviews [B. Turney, "How two operating systems boost FEA productivity," 3/23/2006, http://www.machinedesign.com] [J. Greco, " [http://www.nxtbook.com/fx/books/advanstar/cadalystjan05/ Flexible FEA Program Supports Mixed Elements To Speed Up Analysis] " "CADALYST", Jan. 2005.] [R.
