Enhancements and known issues resolved in ANSA
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━

<Enhancements in ANSA>
Model Browser
Model Organization: It is now possible to save in DM "Subsystem folders" that have
"INCLUDE"references to other subsystems. This enhancement facilitates the model
organization in cases where an assembly,
e.g. a vehicle BiW model, needs to be
handled as a single include for some disciplines, but needs to 
be split down to more
includes for some others.

Data Management
For DMs that support Library Items through their dm_structure.xml, it is now possible
to save such Library Items to DM directly from within the Model Browser's Loadcase
and Simulation Model tabs.

Plugins
From Includes to Model Browser: This plugin is a tool that facilitates the migration
of a FE model organized with includes to a model organized with Model Browser
containers and prepares the 
infrastructure for modular assembly with the
"Smart Assembly" methodology. The tool will guide the
user through an includes-labeling
process, in order to map each include to the appropriate Model 
Browser container with
the minimum effort.Combined with data management functionality, the tool 
enables
the direct copy of the original include files in the data repository with appropriate
metadata,
and in this way facilitates the comprehensive management of the migrated
model 
in a modular manner with a data management backbone.

Mapping - SOL200 FE Update: The Plugin now supports optimization results from
EPILYSIS, regarding Orientation angle of orthotropic (MAT8 and MAT2) materials
on shell elements.

Safety
Interior - FMVSS201U: A new option "Use distance to hard parts" is now available.
With this option the tool takes into account the Contact Point - Hard Parts distance.
The best Horizontal position of 
the head is estimated by calculating the distance
between the contact point and the hard parts (if any)
along the X-axis of the head.
Moreover, when the option is enabled, the horizontal position is 
re-calculated,
until the most optimized Node is found.


<Known issues resolved in ANSA>
General
Lists - Modify: Unexpected termination would occur when "F1" or "? " was typed
in a column modification field.

Model Browser
Parts - Replace: When an instance of a multi-instantiated part was replaced,
the incoming part would notbecome an instance of the original part. The removal
of the replaced instance from the chain of 
multi-instances was not a desired
behavior.Now, when an instance of a multi-instantiated part is 
replaced,the
incoming part remains an instance of the original part.

Data Management
Input: When a Model Browser container (Subsystem, Simulation Model etc.) is
exported from ANSA,its properties are written both in the DM Header section of
the solver keyword file and as ANSA Comments.
Mismatch between the properties
written in the DM Header and ANSA Comments could lead to the creation of 
duplicate
entities in the Model Browser during Input. The properties written in the DM header
now prevail 
over properties written in the ANSA Comments section.

Data Management
Subsystems - Save in DM: Excessive time would be taken when additionally
saving JT file("Light Representation" option).

Connections & Assembly
Modules/Convert: Conversion of FE-entities referenced by different Modules into
ANSA connection points would lead to abnormal termination, as well as to ANSA
databases prone to get corrupted, once recovered.

NASTRAN
Utilities - Deck Info: The function would totally omit RBE2 elements in the
calculation of Total Number of Elements.

Tools
Checks > Duplicate Elements: The function would not detect 2nd order duplicate
shell elements.

NASTRAN
Drawing Styles - Fringe: TEMP values on shells and solids would not be displayed.

LS-DYNA
Database Browser: Presence of ?PART_MOVE keyword would slow down the
performance during editing of cards(e.g. Material, Property, etc).


━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
Enhancements and known issues resolved in EPILYSIS
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
<Enhancements in EPILYSIS>
SOL200
TOPVAR: Topology optimization for orthotropic and anisotropic materials is now
supported through the TOPVAR card.

For shell properties of orthotropic (MAT8) or anisotropic (MAT2) material,
the optimization of fiber orientation angle (THETA) is also taken into account through
the parameter PARAM,TOPTHETA,YES (default).
Topology optimization is also available
 for solid properties of anisotropic materials (MAT9).

<Known issues resolved in EPILYSIS>
NVH
Frequency Response Analysis with large input and frequency domain would lead to
increased memory consumption.

Laminates
Unexpected termination would occur when the laminate option would be set to
"BEND" on a PCOMP bulk data entry with "ECHO=PUNCH" specified.


━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
Enhancements and known issues resolved in META
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━

<Enhancements in META>
Report
Report Composer PPTX: Audio files are now supported.

Automation
Script: The new script function meta.plot2d.CopyPasteSomeCurves has been added,
that copies curves from a specific page/window/plot and pastes them to another
page/window/plot.


<Known issues resolved in META>
General
GUI: Resize of docked windows would not work properly since v19.1.0.

Decks
FE-Fatigue: Unexpected termination would occur when trying to load multiple scalar
results simultaneously.

Decks
LS-DYNA: Optimization results from binout files could not be plotted and unexpected
termination would occur.

Identification of Entities and Data
iFunction - Pick Elements: META would cease to respond in case of line elements
with properties.

NVH Calculators
Modal Response & FRF Assembly: FRF component in FRF Assembly tool defined
as "Nastran FRF" with punch file in SORT2 format was not read correctly, causing
erroneous calculation results.

Moreover, in Modal Response tool, Transient Response DOFs could take into
account the DOFs options of the Frequency Response from the corresponding
GUI menu option, since v19.1.0.

<Enhancements in ANSA>
Model Browser
The "DM Update Status" column, which displays the status of the loaded Model Browser
containers in DM,now shows a new, color-coded status for those items that have changed
since they were downloaded from 
DM and therefore, they need to be saved again.

<Known issues resolved in ANSA>
CAD to ANSA Translators
Parallel worker processes could still be running, in case the main ANSA was terminated
before finish.


Model Browser

previously applied,would be realized. Moreover, upon the replacement of a Part,
unrealized connections would be realized,
while connections with FE-Representation
and Status not 'ok' would not be re-applied.

Data Management
DM Browser - Download: Upon the download of a Subsystem, which was saved
in DM as keyword File Typewith references to its parts, the multi-instance parts would
be merged in one part.

Connections & Assembly
Spotwelds: The realization of Spotweld connections that lay on PID bounds or FE
perimeters would fail.

Volume Mesh
Batch Mesh: Fix Quality Parameters would not be read, in case ANSA database was
aved in version(s) prior to v18.0.0.

Scripting - mesh.ExtrudeTranslate(): Function would not work properly, resulting
in an error message.

Abaqus
Checks - Penetration [Property Thickness] - Contacts: Unexpected termination
could occur, when performing Fix or Show Only operation, in case springs had
penetrated nodes.

BETA LM v6.4 has been released.
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
New features [BETA_LM_v6.4]
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
The following bug is revised in this version.
A loss in communication between License Server and clients has been noticed in some rare cases,
especially when all the license credits are in use.
As a result, it was possible that some of the already running BETA CAE Systems applications,
were forced to finish.
In beta_lm_v6.4 several performance fixes have been implemented in order to enforce
the uninterrupted communication between the License Server and the clients.
The new version is compatible with all the previous BETA CAE Systems applications.
However, the improved performance is even more obvious by using BETA CAE Systems versions
released after 14th September 2015 (i.e. v15.3.2, v16.0.1, etc).

Regarding the details of the bugfix,please refer to following release note.
