Enhancements and known issues resolved in ANSA
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
<Known issues resolved in ANSA>
General
Unexpected file size increase was encountered upon execution of 
File > Save as or File > Save visible, in combination with the changeset 
functionality.Through this fix, a reparation routine will now return the initial
file size, when opening affected ANSA databases.

ANSA_TRANSL.py: Running a pre- or post-output function with three
arguments would erroneously raise an exception and unexpected termination
would occur on Windows machines, when the script function session.Quit()
was used.

Data Management
Input model definition of a PLMXML, previously exported by ANSA, would
lead to erroneous hierarchy, in case of empty groups or in case of multiple top
level items.

Connections & Assembly
ANSA would unexpectedly terminate when selecting a Model Container with
hundreds thousands of elements as connectivity of a GEB or Connector,
while "highlight" was activated.

Unexpected termination would also occur upon connections realization,
when Node-to-Node FE Representation type (RBE2, CBAR, etc.) was
used on Linked Faces.

Shell Mesh
The Macros functionality has been enhanced, when the option Reconstruct
is active. Joining, now, two unmeshed Macro areas updates the segmentation
of the perimeters of the new Macro area, whereas joining one unmeshed and
one meshed Macro area can now successfully be performed.

Safety
The Dummy Marionette tool for Radioss has been enhanced in various
aspects, such as:

Imposed displacements come in the correct direction, whereas a relaxation
time parameter has been added. ANSA.defaults values of the tool are saved
in [tonne], [mm], [sec] units and, when reading from ANSA.defaults file,
values are converted to the tool's active units.

The tool allows from now on the selection of deformable nodes for the application
of the loads - functionality available also for LS-DYNA and Pam-Crash, apart from
Radioss.

Scripting
Various fatal error cases in TOPO-related functions have been combatted,
including:

Unexpected termination could occur, when other entities (instead of CONS)
were provided as input arguments to the base.ConsToCurves() function.

Unexpected termination could occur, when a script including the
base.CurvesCreateFillet() function was run in -b mode.

The return of the base.PickPointOnSurface() function would lack accuracy
and ANSA would unexpectedly terminate when the function was applied to
a Face instead of a list of Faces.

<Known issues resolved in EPILYSIS>
ELEMENTs
Differences in Eigenmodes would falsely be produced, due to the CQUAD8
bending curvature evaluation.

Output
Data Recovery results, like Forces and Stresses, would be inconsistent
in case of CTRIA6 with deleted edge nodes.

Furthermore, if elements of a fluid solid mesh consist of grids with the same
coordinates, a fatal error is issued and the elements are listed in the .f06 file.


━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
Enhancements and known issues resolved in META
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
<Known issues resolved in META>
Abaqus
Thanks to the implementation of ABAQUS_RESULTS_SEARCH_PATH
<directory path> that can now be added in the META_post.defaults file,
when geometry is loaded from the *.inp file, the automatic file detection will
search in the specified directory.

NVH Calculators
In case of NASTRAN FRF Components, which contained Acceleration and
Displacement results, with the latter being only Pressure, the calculated
responses would be zero.

Decks
Various cases regarding reading of files were spotted and, consequently,
fixed:

Failures were reported, when reading results from Abaqus .odb files.

Paraview .vtu files with second order elements could not be loaded properly.

Ansys Phase results could be different when read alone or together with
Magnitude.

History Variables of LS-DYNA were not read correctly from .d3plot files
compressed with Femzip, in certain cases of big .d3plot files. Additionally,
time history result files (binouts) created from *CASE were not read at all,
whereas PID thickness was incorrect, when reading geometry from d3plot file.

Displacement results were not read correctly as scalar results through
NASTRAN HDF format.

TAITherm Results in EnSight format were not read at all.

Annotations
Unexpected termination could occur when trying to create an Annotation on
Window inside a 2D plot window, without any active plots.

Managing Curve Data
Non-Linear results from NASTRAN punch files were not loaded.

Reading time history results using Follow Nodes was not recorded correctly
in session.

Project File & METADB
Unexpected termination could occur upon saving a project file, after having
deleted some PIDs from the model.

ANSA/EPILYSIS/META/CAD data translator v20.1.5 has been released.
BETA CAE Systems Japan Inc.is pleased to announce the new release of v20.1.5.

New functions are equipped with v20.1.5.

For details of new features and bug fixes, please refer in the following.

Enhancements and known issues resolved in ANSA
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
<Known issues resolved in ANSA>
CAD Import/Export
Several cases, related to reading CAD formats, have been successfully
combatted, as follows:

- Upon reading Neutral files using CoreTechnologie libraries, PID from Layers
 would not be correctly generated.

- Referencing CATIA Translators, 3D Point entities would be erroneously
 disregarded,when "Read features" mode was activated.

- When using ANSA Translator, the import of STEP files was susceptible to
 missing unit changes, encountered in assemblies designed in mixed units.

Compare
Time required for the creation of the Compare Report and the size of the
generated METADBs are now significantly reduced.

Indicatively, in small models of ~40 parts, the execution time has been
reduced from ~12min to ~3min and the generated METADBs size from
~400MB to ~9MB. In large models of ~400 parts, the reduction is even
more impressive in the generated METADBs size, from an excess of 15GB
to less than 100MB, executed in ~47min in total.

FE Representations
The realization of SPIDER2 Representation could fail in case of nearby
attached solids, whereas the treatment of non-circular BOLT holes would
not be successfully applied.

Volume Mesh
Unexpected termination could occur when the function Structured Mesh
> Extrude [Revolute] produced more than one volumes, according to
connectivity, PID, or part of the source area.

Checking Mesh [Void Areas], areas at locations of hanging edge between
a warped quad shell/facet and the two corresponding tria shells/facets are
not identified as Void Areas anymore.

Deck Tools
Unexpected termination could occur upon Units Conversion in a database
containing 3D Points.

Safety
Differences between CNCAP and KNCAP with EuroNCAP are now taken
into account for Car Marking in the Pedestrian tool.

Morph
The robustness of Direct Morphing DFM functionality has been fortified,
in cases of geometry with poor underlying surface quality.

General
Unexpected termination could occur when GPSTRESS was requested on
fluid elements upon Output, and when a DRESP2 would reference a DRESP2
with higher ID in SOL200.

Enhancements and known issues resolved in META
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
<Known issues resolved in META>
Decks - Fluent
Reading times of Fluent .dat result files have been significantly improved
and META can now read multiple states of .h5 format for transient analysis.
Furthermore, META is no longer terminating while reading "Volume Fraction"
scalar results of Fluent .cdat files.

Decks - TAITherm
META would unexpectedly terminate, upon auto-detection of TAITherm files.

NVH Calculators - FRF Assembly
In certain cases where Linear Combination nodes were used as responses,
calculations could be incorrect since v20.1.0, depending on the included
loadcases.

Project Files & METADB
After loading a Project File, META displayed the list of all available results,
besides the ones saved. In addition, Set IDs were not successfully saved
in Project Files.

File Export
Unexpected termination could occur when exporting in 3DXML format.

User Toolbars
In the Crash & Safety domain, Occupant Injury Criteria Toolbar now efficiently
offers C-NCAP 2021 Rating, whereas Haigh Diagram was not successfully
created for user created states, under the respective Haigh Diagram Toolbar.

BETA_LM v7.0 has been released
BETA CAE Systems Japan Inc.is pleased to announce the new release of
BETA_LM v7.0

New functions are equipped with BETA_LM v7.0

For details of new features and bug fixes, please refer in the following.
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
Enhancements and known issues resolved in in BETA_LM
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
<Enhancements in ANSA>
The capability to filter the licensed features, so as to idle, limit, allow or deny 
their usage,based on user, group of users, IP address or hostname, has been
introduced.

The new time-based licensing scheme offers flexibility through a time-based
batch credit system, designed to serve a huge number of small jobs
(e.g. ANSA/META scripts in a DOE study).

New potential arises with the Virtual Machine support ? as well as with the
teamed network interface support.

Abundant developments took place providing enhanced performance, better
stability and enriched reporting, such as: BETA software suite version & GPU,
as well as detailed shared BETA software suite information in beta_lm_stat,
total clients connected and total/average waiting time in beta_lm.log and
many more.


<Known issues resolved in BETA LM>
Communication with License Manager
BETA suite would fail to cycle through all the available License Servers,
when trying to re-acquire license credits.

On top of that, as far as the Idle User Timeout is concerned, ANSA would fail
to turn in Idle Status, while remaining in Launcher window mode.

Network Interfaces
When switching network interfaces, the Shared Licensing feature would not
always be respected.

Moreover, BETA License Manager might fail to generate a valid host key,
in case of teamed network interfaces.
