Range Software

Range Software is software for finite element analysis (FEA) in engineering simulations. Its main features are support for Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), heat transfer and radiation, linear stress-strain, electro-statics, acoustics, ground water flow, shape optimization, 3D mesh generation, an intuitive GUI, and import and export functionality. The Range Software package contains several tools which helps the user to setup, solve, and analyze the engineering problem.

Recent releases

  •  05 Sep 2011 07:45

    Release Notes: A major update was made to the user interface. New boundary conditions and lots of improvements and bugfixes were added.

    •  01 Jun 2010 07:14

      Release Notes: This release added new features such as modal analysis, a faster-loading binary file format, a new boundary condition for stress analysis (displacement - normal to the surface), automatic detection of which matrix solver is most appropriate for a given problem, multiple entity selection in the boundary condition dialog, a line split function, and lots of small improvements and bugfixes.

      •  18 Jan 2010 09:05

        Release Notes: New features include a CFD solver with a heat-transfer model, wall/fluid heat exchange, and a contaminant dispersion model. Temperature dependent material properties were added. Unit conversion can be done for imported models. New boundary conditions were added for stress analysis. Gmsh mesh files can be imported and exported. ISO surfaces were added. A 64-bit IronCAD add-in was added. Lots of small improvements and bugfixes were made.

        •  16 Sep 2009 08:24

          Release Notes: New solvers were added for elasto-dynamics, acoustics, and wave propagation. Calculations can be performed online using iRaCS.

          •  16 Feb 2009 09:41

            Release Notes: View related actions were grouped into one tool-bar for better accessibility. New mesh repair functions were added. All project files are archived into one compressed file. All user files and directories are now in one user directory, "[User home]/range-software". In the "record selector" dialog, the user can activate the "Auto Screen-Shot" check box and every time a new record is loaded, a screen shot will be taken automatically. Extremely high Joule's heat was fixed.
