Sargon is interfaced with six possible external static solvers
(ALGOR, SAP80, SAP90, SAP2000, UNIVERSAL FILE compatible as GT-STRUDL, FEMAP compatible as NX or NE NASTRAN)
and equipped with five possible internal solvers
for static analysis (sparse);
for nonlinear static (material nonlinearity);
for modal analysis;
for response spectrum analysis;
for second order effects;
for frequency response.
The internal solvers are all very efficient solvers and not derived from SAPV, having
been programmed by Castalia from beginning to end.

discontinuities of the displacements along the vertical border where two glass-panes meet, supported by a couple of steel cables (Sargon Model and Analysis by
