ALGOR, Inc. (Pittsburgh) recently announced new fast solvers for linear static stress and steady-state heat transfer analyses that use sparse solver technology to provide significantly faster processing times. This speed is especially important when considering stress in any assembly model, such as a large CAD model, or performing a heat transfer analysis involving body-to-body radiation or forced convection.

Customers with current software upgrade subscriptions can receive the new sparse solver technology at no charge by requesting the latest updates for the linear static stress and steady-state heat transfer products. The software is available for PC workstations running Windows NT, Me, 98, 2000 or XP.
