License Management for ANSA and META

Focusing on the Command Line arguments, the LM retry option (-lm retry timeout) can now be restricted by user-defined timeout.The respective flag is followed by the desired timeout in seconds and its minimum acceptable value is 60.

Enhancements and known issues resolved in ANSA

Known issues resolved in ANSA

Graphics

ANSA might abort launching when executed via VirtualGL on remote environments.

GUI

ANSA would cease to respond, when loading specific types of .xml files.

Indicatively, such .xml files would contain GUI Settings saved with any list windows (e.g. Properties, Materials) visible, affecting ANSA response even upon initial launch.

Database Browser

Unexpected termination could occur upon deletion of solid elements when deleted directly (e.g. through the Database Browser list of solids) or indirectly (e.g. through the deletion of other containers like includes or Model Containers).

Shell Mesh

Unexpected termination could occur when projecting points to open holes via Project [Holes].

Pasting nodes that lie on boundary of volumes in light volume representation mode via Grids > Paste [Auto] function would lead to erased volumes.

Laminates

Laminate Convert would occasionally lead to unexpected termination.

Optimization Tool

Unexpected termination could occur when Cross Sections were morphed and recalculated during a DOE run, or when Simulate was used and the Design Variables modified cross section thickness and shape.

Enhancements and known issues resolved in EPILYSIS

Known issues resolved in EPILYSIS

NVH

DMIG coupling generation weighing factors would not be correct when the coupled Fluid and Structure surfaces were parallel.

SOL200

Topometry optimization would stop in first cycle, when a PCOMP property was used.

Enhancements and known issues resolved in META

Known issues resolved in META

General

Certain settings in "Fraction Plot Options" of FRF Assembly might not be initialized correctly after Ctrl+N.

Certain settings in Modal / FRF Correlation Tool would not reset to their default values with Ctrl+N.

"Output in Unv58" settings under Modal Response would not be restored correctly.

Read Results

PAM-CRASH MTOJNT elements, as well as PERMAS EKINMASS scalar results, were not read correctly. Marc Element Type 84 was not read at all, whereas unexpected termination could occur when reading Marc Logarithmic Stress results.

NASTRAN

When multiple META sessions were using femzip NASTRAN models to read results simultaneously, META could become unresponsive. In addition, unexpected termination could occur when coordinates systems were defined with mixed single and double precision.

States & Animation

Unexpected termination would occur when Time was shown on the Animation Bar and the selected States Method was Interpolate.

Identification of Entities & Data

Parts identify function failed to exclusively identify the picked part in the GL area and, consequently, indicate it in the list.

Math Operations on Field Data

Unexpected termination could occur when reading scalar nodal results in Fourier Transformation for Abaqus.

NVH Calculators

FRF Assembly: When modal participations were requested for a single component, with no connections, the calculated results would be zero.

Modal Response: If the method without large masses was used to calculate enforced motion for ASCII modal models, the enforced motion displacement at the excitation points was calculated as zero.

Project Files & METADB

Unexpected termination could occur when reading element thickness.

File Export

Unexpected termination could occur while exporting a video with animating cycles.

Known issues resolved in KOMVOS

GUI

Thanks to the "Compare Containers" option, available under the Context Menu when selecting Parts, the properties and attributes of multiple Parts can be successfully compared.

DM Schema Editor

Clicking OK in the "Accepted Values Editor" window would lead to unexpected termination.
