<Enhancements in ANSA>

Data management
・It is now possible to check real-time whether the Model Browser entities of a model exist in 
 DM with the aid of the new column labeled "DM".

・When replacing a Part with a different version in DM, the internal Model Setup entities of the 
 outgoing part would be kept, resulting in duplicated entries in the database.

Connections & Assembly
・Several enhancements have been made for the function Connector>
 New[From A_POINTs(auto)] that creates connectors from pairs of Assembly Points. 
 The function can now run on visible A_POINTs only, while in preview mode, it offers improved 
 handling of connectors that through both the list and the drawing area.

Task Manager
・The option of generating video files (already available in Morphing Parameters), has been 
 added in the context menu of the Optimization Task.

Kinetics
・The animation of deformations/ stresses/ strains for flex bodies consisting of solid elements 
 is now supported.

Plugins
・The Laminate Convert can be used for PAMCRASH model set-up.


<Known issues resolved in ANSA>

CAD Data to ANSA Translators
・The parallel translation processes by multiple users logged in the same workstation and 
 a common tmp directory would not be successful.

Model Browser
・The ANSA id of a part could be changed when saving and re-opening a database.

Data Management
・Applying the Change Representation > Lumped Mass function on a part, 
 might double the mass of the part.

Connections & Assembly
・The Auto-Connect function would erroneously detect the same part multiple times in case of 
 unmeshed geometry.

Shell Mesh
・When pasting nodes and single bounds changed to double bounds, 
 the FE perimeters would not get updated automatically.

・The function Wrap > Constant Length would not take into account the middle nodes and
  could thus generate intersections in the "Shells out of structure" mode.

Volume Mesh
・The resulting number of Steps and Distance would occasionally differ from the given values.

Decks
・The function Util>Change Type would corrupt the ANSA database file when features or 
 FE perimeters were present.

NASTRAN
・The Header would fail to read command entries that extended to more than one lines.

PAM-CRASH
・Upon output, the Functions (FUNCT) window would erroneously appear.

Abaqus
・In certain cases, the FILM entities defined on solids would not be imported.

RADIOSS
・Function fields in material cards would not accept IDs with nine digits.

OPTISTRUCT
・DRESPi DRESP1 was written upon output with the PTYPE field, even for RTYPEs not 
 supporting PTYPE field, causing errors to OPTISTRUCT's solution.

ANSA/EPILYSIS/META/CAD data translator/RETOMO v18.1.0 has been released.
BETA CAE Systems Japan Inc.is pleased to announce the new release of
ANSA/EPILYSIS/META/CAD data translator/RETOMO v18.1.0.

The release information for v18.1.0 is written below.
If you have any questions about the new functions in ANSA v18.1.0,
please don't hesitate to contact our technical support staff (support@beta-cae.jp).

New functions are equipped with ANSA/EPILYSIS/META/CAD data translator/RETOMO v18.1.0.
For details of new features and bug fixes, please refer in the following.
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
Enhancements in ANSA
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
ANSA extends its collaboration capabilities with the implementation of the Sketch tool. 
With this tool you can highlight areas of interest on the model and add notes in the form of 
annotations, for further check/review. The Web Interface capabilities are also expanded to full ANSA 
Interface broadcasting.

The new version, introduces a brand new methodology to facilitate the synthesis of modular assemblies. 
This new approach, powered by the marking capabilities of Assembly Points and Sets, the versatility of 
Bolts and Connectors, and the file management functionality of ANSA DM, brings a solution to many of 
the usual bottlenecks of model building process that are related to the interdependencies between the 
different subsystems. As a result, the maintenance of each subsystem becomes much easier, the assembly 
of the complete model is carried-out faster and the validation of the assembly after model changes 
comes at no cost for the analyst.

Functionality initially introduced with v18.0.0 is further improved. The Light Volume Representation 
has been enhanced with the addition of clipping planes. Solid elements can be extruded with minimum 
user interaction. The seat de-penetration functionality comes with the support of non-linear 
characteristics of the cushion material, and the Laminate Tool has been enriched with the parametric 
definition of Laminates and Composites, on top of the Template Layers.

The introduction of the Octree entity allows you to create and preview the result of octree based 
algorithms, such as, Surface Wrapping, Hextreme, and Cavity meshing. This accelerates the overall 
generation process as it provides quick leak detection and cutting planes visualization tools, 
contour plots of mesh size distribution and more, extending the capabilities and performance 
in the CFD domain.

Polyhedral mesh conversion has now improved speed and memory consumption and can produce ANSA Volume 
result or Light Volume representation result. Fixing quality for volume meshes has been accelerated 
and is now available also for polyhedral and Light Volume representation meshes. 
Significant enhancements have been made in the CFD solvers as well, such as speed enhancements 
in Fluent Output and improved handling of TGRID meshes with hanging nodes in Fluent Input, 
Light Volume Representation support for Baffle, 
CyclicACMI and multi-region in OpenFOAM, Thermal Links Wizard and El Temp Menu, displaying 
temperatures directly on the model, in TAI Therm.

Implementations such as the material homogenization, the support of xMCF format and of new FEMSITE 
version, as well as updates in CGNS format (HDF5 I/O, Light Volume Representation I/O, Hybrid Output) 
are just representative cases of the vast developments that have taken place in v18.1.0.


For more details about the new software features, enhancements and corrections please,
refer to the Release Notes document.


━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
Enhancements in EPILYSIS
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
Apart from the continuous enhancements in the overall performance and accuracy, Topology Optimization 
has also been enriched with new manufacturing constraints. Sizing optimization is now available 
including application on composites while mode analysis has also been added to the optimization 
solution (200).


For more details about the new software features, enhancements and corrections please,
refer to the Release Notes document.


━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
Enhancements in META
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
META also extends its collaboration capabilities with the implementation of the Sketch tool, 
for pointing out areas of interest on the model and adding notes in the form of annotations. 
The Web Interface capabilities are also expanded to full META Interface broadcasting.

The capabilities of Virtual Reality have been augmented. Full support of Oculus Rift /HTC Vive 
is provided, in compliance with a complete VR tablet GUI with animation, focus, and inspection 
planes features and capabilities. Furthermore, animation speed in High Quality rendering has been  
significantly accelerated.

The Modal Parameter Estimation is now supplementing the suite with NVH calculations available in META, 
enabling the assessment of modal parameters and eigenvectors from a provided set of transfer function 
results.

Through an attempt to couple RETOMO with the rest of the BETA products, META v18.1.0 can now import 
RETOMO volumes and proceed with rendering.

As for discipline enhancements, vortex tracking and CGNS are supported now in the CFD area. ATFX 
for I/O in NVH field, JT 10 CAE export, Autoform, Moldex 3D and ADAMS view with flex bodies 
for Multibody dynamics are also implemented in this version, together with a new toolbar for Fatigue  
Safety factors calculation.

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.
