Structural Research Releases COSMOS/Works 7.0

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 11, 2002--Structural Research & Analysis Corp. (SRAC), a leading developer of design analysis, optimization and simulation software for the mechanical computer-aided engineering community, today announced the eagerly anticipated release of COSMOS/Works 7.0, the best-selling analysis tool for SolidWorks® users.

COSMOS/Works design analysis provides SolidWorks engineers with valuable insight into the behavior of their models early in the design process when modifications can be made quickly and easily, thereby leading to faster product development cycles and lower development costs.

Created for designers and engineers who are not necessarily experts in traditional finite element analysis, COSMOS/Works 7.0 continues to set new standards in the CAE industry for superior performance and improved efficiency. It also continues to simplify design simulation by introducing additional capabilities and productivity enhancements, while maintaining an easy-to-learn and -use interface.

COSMOS/Works 7.0 is a major product release, with several customer-driven improvements and enhancements. Some of the new and enhanced features include:

Enhancements in Loads and Restraints

    -- Bearing loads on cylindrical faces
    -- Remote loading
    -- Rigid connections for assemblies
    -- Edge pressure on shell elements
    -- Applying temperature to components
    -- Multiple restraints at a location
    -- Symbols for body loads
    -- Retaining color assignments

Enhancements in Contact Functionality
