Roshaz 2009 (Windows)

Roshaz provides a highly practical and realistic approach to solving engineering problems with a unique set of tools and facilities. Written by experienced practising engineers who know exactly what the most efficient and accurate ways are to build reliable simulations. In addition to the static linear solver included in the software suite, the pre and post processor can be seamlessly and fully integrated with several other well known solvers, including Abaqus, Calculix, Lusas and Nastran, with which the choice of analyses is extended to include thermal, buckling, natural frequency and non-linear contact. Included is a sketcher tool to quickly and easily build geometry from scratch. Alternatively geometry can be imported from CAD via IGES, DXF, STL or VRML files. The free demo version has a limit of 5000 nodes per model, with no other restrictions.
