imageProject Scout is an Autodesk Labs release of a new Technology Preview for Autodesk Simulation Mechanical and Multiphysics (formerly Algor). The focused enhancements are:

  • Parametric Design Studies
  • Drop Test Wizard
  • Impact Plane Improvements
  • Multi-Time Step (more flexible timing module)
  • Non-Linear Structural Contact improvements
  • BFGS (a new non-linear iteration Scheme)
  • New AMG Solver (AMG-MF) – A linear static stress and mechanical event simulation solver that can utilize a supported NVIDIA graphics card. (I suspect this is CUDA technology, so older cards might be out of luck.)

Good feedback on Autodesk Labs is usually the best avenue to get you opinions in about the direction of a project. Join in and help shape the future.
