Connecting Users With Material Property Data for CAE Applications

PITTSBURGH, PA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Mar 22, 2007 -- ALGOR, Inc., a leading provider of design, analysis and simulation software, announced that it has in cooperation with Matereality, L.L.C. of Ithaca, NY, a provider of industrial-strength IT infrastructure for secure material information storage and exchange, developed an interface that seamlessly connects Matereality® to ALGOR software. 'Matereality for ALGOR' allows users to mine databases for ALGOR-relevant data with Matereality's MiRo wizard and then seamlessly export the selected data for their finite element analysis (FEA) and simulation needs.

Matereality contains the largest repository of CAE-suitable data on plastics, metals, rubber, foam and composites, including stress-strain curves; rate-dependent data; tensile, compressive, creep and fatigue data. It allows users to access well-known databases such as the MMPDS-02 (formerly Mil-handbook), used widely by the aerospace and defense manufacturing industries, and the NIST Lead-Free Solder Database for the electronics industry.

In addition, Matereality's ability to house any material and any data means that ALGOR users can build enduring collections of material properties for ALGOR and PLM-wide use. Materials are never lost, always there and can be viewed using Matereality's cutting-edge visualization tools, subjected to instant unit conversion and CAE/FEA export capabilities. "'Matereality for ALGOR' provides our users with customized access to an industry-leading resource for material property data," said ALGOR Product Manager Bob Williams. "Using Matereality, customers can easily expand our default material library and conveniently apply properties to enhance the accuracy of their analyses."

Matereality satisfies the needs of users to have private databases, while providing valuable access to external databases. "Our vision is to create a global material data pipeline, serving various companies and PLM products. We are happy to add connectivity to ALGOR, a prominent player in this space," says Hubert Lobo, Matereality President.
