ANSA/EPILYSIS/META/CAD data translator v21.1.0 has been released.
BETA CAE Systems Japan Inc.is pleased to announce the new release of v21.1.0.

New functions are equipped with v21.1.0.

For details of new features and bug fixes, please refer in the following.
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
Diversifying multidisciplinary capabilities in ANSA
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
The introduction of Electronic CAD (eCAD), as well as Electromagnetics,
triggers a new potential in our pre-processing fields of expertize and widen
the areas of simulation to new perspectives.

In a similar manner, the introduction of Thermal support for Marc and
Pam-Crash solvers paves the way for more efficient pre-processing methods.

One step further, and loyal to our goal to provide steady, but at the same time
efficient and swift model management techniques, we empowered Modular
Environment with extended capabilities. 
Collaboration with remote users is
now further facilitated, allowing the transfer of DM objects 
between different
DMs, the benefits of which are further augmented by the new capability of
data compression.

From the discipline-oriented perspective, the already introduced Marc
interface gains ground with even more dedicated capabilities, whereas
Actran offers extended functionality with numerous 
additional features.
In a similar manner, Crash & Safety fields offer a progressing interface for
Impetus solver, along with numerous newly introduced tools for other
applications, such as 
Marionette Positioning for Pam-Crash analysis.

Not to be missed, the enriched optimization capabilities that vest the new
version with a new potentialfor topology optimization, as well as the ability
to morph and modify models through VR 
and Collaboration in ANSA.


━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
Optimization gaining ground with EPILYSIS
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
The brand new v21.1.0 heads straight for uplifted optimization with the output
of shape optimization results in HDF5 format for SOL200. On top of that,
enhancements in Contacts algorithm, in sectors 
such as Penetration checking
and output of intermediate results, give boost to the accuracy in 
engineering
solutions and come hand-in-hand with noteworthy enhancements in memory
and disk usage 
peaks reported in .f04 file.


━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
Elevating post-processing capabilities with META
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
Boosting graphics performance even more, the brand new GPU Accelerated
Smooth Light Calculations provide faster first animation loop with less
memory consumption, whereas the ability to place 
annotations around models
in real-time, ensures more dynamic post-processing interaction.

Moreover, acknowledging and further promoting post-processing needs and
capabilities in the area of Web Collaboration, its interface has arrived with an
uplifted look & feel, hosting pages, 
windows and states for even smoother
user interaction.

Vast developments have also taken place in the NVH domain, by the direct
support of enforced excitation on tire patch in Modal Response and FRF
Assembly, 
without using the large mass method.

Other areas that have recently gained ground in META v21.1.0 are the
Crash & Safety, hosting a new toolfor the automatic report generation of
Human Body Models results. This comes along with a 
significant speed-up
when reading FEMZIP LS-DYNA results, by providing the ability to select and
read multiple results simultaneously. On top of that, major performance
improvements have also been tracked in ERF and ERF FEMZIP. Specifically,
the loading time of ERF and ERF FEMZIP files has been 
accelerated by
approximately 30-35% for both loading geometry and results.
The aforementioned
implementations, coupled with the support of ERF
FEMZIP v11 libraries, 
boost the overall performance to even greater extend.


━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
Machine Learning in BETA products branching out
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
Further expanding Machine Learning (ML) potential via its integration in
KOMVOS through ANSA, as implemented in prior versions, the brand new
version offers advanced capabilities for incremental 
learning, as well as a fine
tuning of Machine Learning parameters, such as Train / Test ratio,
Cross
Validation and Confidence level.

On top of that, the introduction and implementation of ML Toolkit v2.0, the new
version of Tensorflow(2.2.1), offers an updated and synchronized packaging
for both Linux & Windows.

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.

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.
