Enhancements and known issues resolved in ANSA
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━ <Known issues resolved in ANSA>
CAD Import/Export
The AP242 parser is now updated and can parse parts with many versions, by activating the respective option.

GUI
Unexpected termination could occur when using the NOT function from Focus group commands, while different models were open in multiple windows.

Modular Run Management
Deleted Subsystems would erroneously re-appear during build of connecting subsystems, if the Connecting Subsystems contained connectors referencing the deleted Subsystems.

Connections & Assembly
The RBE3-PENTA-RBE3 seamweld realization would produce duplicate RBE3s.

TOPO
When the base.Cog() function was applied on Edges and Facets, the COG was occasionally erroneously calculated.

Batch Mesh
The CFD meshing algorithm would occasionally fail, resulting in a of poor quality mesh, with large growth rate and element size differences. Proximity and size fields might also not be taken into account.

Pam-Crash
ANSA would abort launching, when the check box "Preview Include Structure" had been selected upon Input.

Kinetics
Unexpected termination would occur while exporting a model in ADAMS solver dataset format(.adm) or when the model included flex bodies without any active modes.

Design Analysis: Unexpected termination could occur on models with existing results, after editing a Kin_Measure entity.

━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━ <Known issues resolved in META>
ASAM ODS
ASAM ODS v5 and v6 servers are now supported and their data can be accessed / viewed through the DM Browser tool.

The capabilities offered include:
- Viewing the collected items in various simple or hierarchical views
- Applying queries to fetch instances of application elements
- Viewing attributes / relations of the instances of application elements
- Sending curves, images, videos or other data to view in META Viewer or META

General
3D results would not be exported correctly in .csv format.

Lighting Settings read from an older .xml file (prior to v21.1.x.) would not be saved correctly, and thus not read correctly. They would also not get updated in META defaults, when lighting preset changed, or in META defaults table via commands.

Read Results - MARC
Reading a .t16 results file right after a .bdf geometry file was imported, could lead to unexpected termination.

Abaqus
Fasteners would not be not visualized correctly. Their couplings were omitted, leading to connectivity issues between parts when performing focus actions.

OptiStruct
META would terminate when reading modal or panel participation results from OptiStruct punch file.

NVH Calculators
After a successful FRF Assembly calculation, unexpected termination could occur when trying to calculate twice a modified FRF Assembly setup with errors in the Full check, but no errors in the Assembly check.

Moreover, regarding Modal / FRF Correlation, unexpected termination could occur when duplicate node pairs existed in the corresponding list.


━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
Enhancements and known issues resolved in KOMVOS
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━ <Known issues resolved in KOMVOS>
ML Training for 3D field results would fail to be completed for models with more than approximately 1.5 million elements, due to memory shortage.

Moreover, 2D plot Prediction would occasionally fail to be created.

━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━ <Known issues resolved in ANSA>
CAD Import / Export
Upon translation of CATIA files, by enabling the option Hierarchy [Force single part], the structure of the Geometric Sets would be erased, resulting in erroneous input of geometry.

Modular Run Management
Focusing on Interface and particularly on A POINTs / LC POINTs, when creating a new Assembly or Loadcase point on location, the selection of a user defined area would not be stored.
As a result, the Assembly/Loadcase point would fail to be applied.

Moreover, It would not be possible to change the position of an Interface Point through the entity card (i.e. x,y,z values), once applied.

Scripting
In Batch Meshing domain, the batchmesh.ReadSessionMeshParams() script function would not read wrap parameters correctly.

In DECKs, the "Mass Information" result of the script function base.DeckInfo() would ignore elements related to MAT_NULL, leading to erroneous result.

Enhancements and known issues resolved in META
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━ <Known issues resolved in META>
Drawing
Unexpected termination could occur when adding connected PIDs, while multiple pages existed.

In Graphics, activating the option "Draw only Min/Max Tensor Components" did not have any effect, apart from the fact that Fringe range was not properly calculated for free grids.

Read Results
Several fixes for various solvers have taken place, as follows:

- The center of gravity was generally not calculated correctly.

- After CTRL+N, the setting for the surface option when reading stresses from NASTRAN files was not updated and led to reading of wrong results.

- OptiStruct modal participation factors were not recognized correctly from HDF format and a contribution analysis could not be performed. In addition, META would unexpectedly terminate, when reading modal or panel participation results from OptiStruct punch file.

- Reading ParaView .vtk files of certain format would lead to frozen state.

- Patran template file was not respected and this led to erroneous loading of results.

- Global curves (Energies, etc.) could not be read from Pam-Crash result files.

- In case of FEMZIP .d3plot files, initial results were not removed, when "Stresses minus Initial" results were loaded.

- As for the Template Manager, unexpected termination could occur while reading Strain Energy, Inner Surface results.

Managing Curve Data
Modal Displacements 2d result could not be read correctly for all the subcases, while reading a Nastran .pch file.

NVH Calculators
After a successful FRF Assembly calculation, an unexpected META termination could occur when trying to calculate twice a modified FRF Assembly setup which had errors in the Full check and was error-free in the Assembly check.

In Modal Response, when complex modes with zero real part were provided, calculation was interrupted, complaining for zero eigenvectors.

ANSA/EPILYSIS/META/CAD data translator v21.0.3 has been released.
BETA CAE Systems Japan Inc.is pleased to announce the new release of v21.0.3.

New functions are equipped with v21.0.3.

For details of new features and bug fixes, please refer in the following.
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
Enhancements and known issues resolved in ANSA
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
<Known issues resolved in ANSA>
General
Unexpected file size increase was encountered upon execution of 
File > Save as or File > Save visible, in combination with the changeset 
functionality.Through this fix, a reparation routine will now return the initial
file size, when opening affected ANSA databases.

ANSA_TRANSL.py: Running a pre- or post-output function with three
arguments would erroneously raise an exception and unexpected termination
would occur on Windows machines, when the script function session.Quit()
was used.

Data Management
Input model definition of a PLMXML, previously exported by ANSA, would
lead to erroneous hierarchy, in case of empty groups or in case of multiple top
level items.

Connections & Assembly
ANSA would unexpectedly terminate when selecting a Model Container with
hundreds thousands of elements as connectivity of a GEB or Connector,
while "highlight" was activated.

Unexpected termination would also occur upon connections realization,
when Node-to-Node FE Representation type (RBE2, CBAR, etc.) was
used on Linked Faces.

Shell Mesh
The Macros functionality has been enhanced, when the option Reconstruct
is active. Joining, now, two unmeshed Macro areas updates the segmentation
of the perimeters of the new Macro area, whereas joining one unmeshed and
one meshed Macro area can now successfully be performed.

Safety
The Dummy Marionette tool for Radioss has been enhanced in various
aspects, such as:

Imposed displacements come in the correct direction, whereas a relaxation
time parameter has been added. ANSA.defaults values of the tool are saved
in [tonne], [mm], [sec] units and, when reading from ANSA.defaults file,
values are converted to the tool's active units.

The tool allows from now on the selection of deformable nodes for the application
of the loads - functionality available also for LS-DYNA and Pam-Crash, apart from
Radioss.

Scripting
Various fatal error cases in TOPO-related functions have been combatted,
including:

Unexpected termination could occur, when other entities (instead of CONS)
were provided as input arguments to the base.ConsToCurves() function.

Unexpected termination could occur, when a script including the
base.CurvesCreateFillet() function was run in -b mode.

The return of the base.PickPointOnSurface() function would lack accuracy
and ANSA would unexpectedly terminate when the function was applied to
a Face instead of a list of Faces.

<Known issues resolved in EPILYSIS>
ELEMENTs
Differences in Eigenmodes would falsely be produced, due to the CQUAD8
bending curvature evaluation.

Output
Data Recovery results, like Forces and Stresses, would be inconsistent
in case of CTRIA6 with deleted edge nodes.

Furthermore, if elements of a fluid solid mesh consist of grids with the same
coordinates, a fatal error is issued and the elements are listed in the .f06 file.

Enhancements and known issues resolved in META
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
<Known issues resolved in META>
Abaqus
Thanks to the implementation of ABAQUS_RESULTS_SEARCH_PATH
<directory path> that can now be added in the META_post.defaults file,
when geometry is loaded from the *.inp file, the automatic file detection will
search in the specified directory.

NVH Calculators
In case of NASTRAN FRF Components, which contained Acceleration and
Displacement results, with the latter being only Pressure, the calculated
responses would be zero.

Decks
Various cases regarding reading of files were spotted and, consequently,
fixed:

Failures were reported, when reading results from Abaqus .odb files.

Paraview .vtu files with second order elements could not be loaded properly.

Ansys Phase results could be different when read alone or together with
Magnitude.

History Variables of LS-DYNA were not read correctly from .d3plot files
compressed with Femzip, in certain cases of big .d3plot files. Additionally,
time history result files (binouts) created from *CASE were not read at all,
whereas PID thickness was incorrect, when reading geometry from d3plot file.

Displacement results were not read correctly as scalar results through
NASTRAN HDF format.

TAITherm Results in EnSight format were not read at all.

Annotations
Unexpected termination could occur when trying to create an Annotation on
Window inside a 2D plot window, without any active plots.

Managing Curve Data
Non-Linear results from NASTRAN punch files were not loaded.

Reading time history results using Follow Nodes was not recorded correctly
in session.

Project File & METADB
Unexpected termination could occur upon saving a project file, after having
deleted some PIDs from the model.

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.
