Original Press Release:

New User Interface Makes FEA Easy Across All Analysis Types

PITTSBURGH, PA - January 23, 2003 - ALGOR, Inc., a leading maker of software for mechanical engineers, announced that FEMPRO, its single user interface with full finite element modeling, results evaluation and presentation environments, is now available for all ALGOR analysis types. This Windows-native interface provides a smooth, efficient workflow to increase the productivity of engineers.

"ALGOR not only has the analysis capabilities I need, but also the easiest user interface I've ever seen with a finite element analysis package and many useful post-processing tools. The user interface was an important consideration since I didn't have much time to learn to use the software. I needed to be productive with the software immediately," said Paul Poorman of Hewlett-Packard.

FEMPRO features:

docking toolbars for quick access to common options

multiple view windows

shortcut keyboard and mouse controls for dynamic viewing

tree view of model parts and associated data that visually guides users to provide all necessary information

context-sensitive menus that are tailored to particular steps in the analysis process

Windows-native input screens

real-time data checking for reasonable input to reduce user error

a suite of modeling capabilities that enables engineers to define models, including:

InCAD technology for direct CAD/CAE data exchange with Autodesk Inventor, CADKEY, Mechanical Desktop, Pro/ENGINEER, Solid Edge and SolidWorks and CAD support for Alibre Design and Rhinoceros

support for CAD universal files such as ACIS, IGES and STEP

built-in precision FEA model-building capabilities with structured meshing tools

automatic, unstructured FEA meshing for single parts and assemblies with a built-in aspect ratio check, using bricks, tetrahedra or a hybrid of bricks on the model surface (where result values are highest) and tetrahedra inside

intelligent, automatic, feature-based mesh refinement tools and point-and-click definition of areas where a finer mesh is desired

right-click functionality for applying, modifying and deleting loads, constraints and FEA properties

load and constraint set capabilities for managing different design scenarios

a Material Library Manager and built-in library of materials

a built-in graphics environment that features fast dynamic viewing controls and customization options including user-defined color palettes, annotations and options so that all analysis results can be:

displayed graphically as contours or plots

output in the BMP, JPG, TIF, PNG, PCX and TGA formats

animated with AVI creation and display tools

presented in text or HTML reports

HTML help with indexing and search capabilities

FEMPRO is included with all ALGOR products and supports a full range of analysis tools including Mechanical Event Simulation for FEA-based motion and stress analysis, full multiphysics and stress, linear dynamics, heat transfer, fluid flow, electrostatics and piping.

ALGOR makes computer software and provides services for mechanical and civil engineers. The company serves over 20,000 engineers in over 60 countries in organizations such as DuPont, General Motors, Goodyear, Hewlett-Packard, NASA, Naval Surface Warfare Center and Yale University.
