ALGOR Simulation is a general-purpose multiphysics finite element analysis software package developed by ALGOR Incorporated for use on the Microsoft Windows and GNU/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. It has found application in aerospace, and it has received many favorable reviews.
Typical uses include bending, mechanical contact, thermal (conduction, convection, radiation), fluid dynamics, and coupled or uncoupled multiphysics.
Materials and elements database
ALGOR's library of material models includes metals and alloys, plastics, glass, foams, fabrics, elastomers, Concrete (with rebar), soils and user-defined materials.
ALGOR's element library depends on the geometry and the type of analysis performed. It includes 8 and 4 node bricks, 8 and 4 node shells, and Beam and trusses.
