For Immediate Release
Agoura Hills, CA - CSAR Corporation has been awarded a new three year contract with the US Department of Defense (DoD) under the High Performance Computing (HPC) Modernization Program to produce a scaleable, parallel version of CSA/NASTRAN for distributed memory supercomputers and workstations.
"We have invested extensively over the past five years to produce state-of-the-art shared memory parallel processing in our products. This award will continue to strengthen CSAR’s ongoing parallel development efforts with the emerging scaleable, distributed memory architectures." Our staff is proficient in modern computer science methods and languages, including C, C++, Fortran 99, Visual Basic, Java, and Perl, etc. We also have extensive expertise in ERP, Databases, and custom development.
The algorithms will be developed in sufficient generality and portability to be usable on several scaleable HPC platforms. The commercial implementation of the developed algorithms will be applicable to the solution of important DOD problems in stress analysis and linear structural dynamics, including shock response and structural acoustics.
Investigators in this project include:

CSA/NASTRAN is a large-scale finite element analysis package used for
strength and vibration testing of three-dimensional structures. CSA/GENSA is a
general nonlinear finite element analysis package (including Explicit & Implicit
formulations) which compliments CSA/NASTRAN by using the same input and output
