Autodesk has announced the release of Autodesk Algor Simulation 2010 products, following the integration of the recently acquired Algor software.

A key component of the Autodesk solution for digital prototyping, Autodesk Algor Simulation software provides a range of mechanical simulation tools to help designers and engineers make critical decisions earlier in the design process.

Finite-element modelling tools and built-in material libraries within Autodesk Algor Simulation software allow users to study initial design intent and accurately simulate the behavior of a digital prototype.

Autodesk Algor Simulation software supports direct, associative data exchange with most computer-aided-design (CAD) software tools.

As a result, users can collaborate and make iterative design changes without having to redefine simulation data.

By helping engineers to predict product performance, including situations in which multiple physical factors interact simultaneously, Autodesk Algor Simulation software helps engineers validate and optimise designs before manufacturing occurs.

There are four Autodesk Algor Simulation software offerings.

The first, Autodesk Algor Simulation 2010, enables design validation and optimisation with a range of mainstream engineering simulation tools in a multi-CAD environment.

Autodesk Algor Simulation CFD 2010, meanwhile, offers all the functionality of Autodesk Algor Simulation along with fluid flow analysis, computational fluid dynamics and mass transfer analysis.

Another offering is Autodesk Algor Simulation MES 2010, which features all the functionality of Autodesk Algor Simulation along with non-linear static and dynamic analysis, rigid-body motion analysis and combined stress and flexible-body motion analysis.

Autodesk Algor Simulation Professional 2010 has all the functionality of Autodesk Algor Simulation, Autodesk Algor Simulation CFD and Autodesk Algor Simulation MES, as well as electrostatic analysis and the ability to combine analysis types for full multi-physics simulations.

Autodesk products are used by 9 million professionals in 185 countries to save time and money, gain competitive advantage, and change the way ideas are brought to life.

Building Information Modelling

Autodesk building information modelling (BIM) software solutions facilitate a new way of working that involves the creation and use of co-ordinated, consistent information–enabling faster decision-making, better documentation and the ability to predict performance before ground is ever broken.

Sustainable by Design

As a global 2D and 3D design software leader, Autodesk believes in the importance of driving sustainable design awareness and adoption. We provide technology, education, and support for programs that inform and promote innovations addressing current and future sustainable design challenges.

We are committed to partnering with the private and public sector, industry leaders, educators, and environmentally focused organizations to create a forum to initiate sustainable design dialogue and increase awareness among the global community. It is our hope that through these collective efforts and Autodesk’s technology, we will help architects, engineers, and designers create a more sustainable world.
