Enhancements and known issues resolved in ANA

Known issues resolved in ANSA

GUI

ANSA would terminate unexpectedly by pressing the exit button on the License confirmation window, after the execution of kill user command.

Data Management

DM Browser poor performance could be detected when opening the Reports Table for several DM items containing many attached Reports, when SPDRM was the back-end. After performance improvements, Reports Table activating speed has been accelerated by 4-5 times.

Modular Run Management

In case more than one manual Loadcase Headers were saved in DM, only the one that contained the current Header would be saved correctly.

Shell Mesh

Auto CFD spacing and CFD meshing functions have noticeably accelerated execution speed.

Volume Mesh

Unexpected termination might occur when the function Extrude [Revolute] from the Structured Mesh menu produced more than one volumes, according to Connectivity, PID or Part of the source area.

LS-DYNA

Unexpected termination could occur when ICFD_MATERIAL was selected to be reported at D.INFO report.

Enhancements and known issues resolved in EPILYSIS

Known issues resolved in EPILYSIS

Units

EPILYSIS would produce misleading results due to erroneous unit-related operations, such as fluid-structure coupling cases or MNF calculation when specific unit abbreviations were specified.

Enhancements and known issues resolved in META

Known issues resolved in META

Read Results

The reading performance of META has been significantly boosted in numerous cases, such as FLUENT .dat result files, Animator databases of models with many RBE elements or simply PIDs from the new Converge .h5 format

NVH Calculators

Spotting on FRF Assembly, unexpected termination could occur when deleting and recreating a component, while keeping the same name.

Furthermore, in certain cases where Linear Combination nodes were used as responses, calculations could be incorrect, depending on the included Loadcases.

Fluent

Reading "Volume Fraction" scalar results of Fluent .cdat files would lead to unexpected termination.

Project Files & METADB

Unexpected termination would occur when saving META project, in case functionality relevant to annotations attributes had been applied, whereas annotations had been copied among models.
