━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
Enhancements and known issues resolved in ANSA
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━ <Known issues resolved in ANSA>
CAD Import/ Export
CAD to ANSA parallel translation would not release translation credits upon translation completion.

Multi-instantiated parts with different CAD references would be erroneously positioned and potentially existing double dollars '$ $' in the filename would be erroneously translated into single dollar '$'.

Furthermore, regarding Product Tree Editor and especially CAD to ANSA functionality, the Vismockup plmxml parser has been enhanced to read the Part Names from ProductInstance, when no ProductRevisionView is defined.

GUI
The pull-down menus of some Module Buttons might not be visible when placed in a custom menu if the GUI Settings *.xml file has been created before v22.0.0.

Moreover, when double-clicking on User Attributes Lists in Settings, unexpected termination would occur.

Data Management
Referring to DM Cluster functionality, when executing "Send to DM" process more than once, despite the successfull transfer between the source and the local DM, ANSA would erroneously cease the "Send to DM" process due to Source and Target DM incompatibility.

The number of displayed results under base.OpenDMObjectsInNewTab() would be falsely limited to 1000.

Modular Run Management
ANSA would unexpectedly terminate upon displaying the "Interface Node->MBContainer" column in the INTERFACE POINTS list in Database Browser.

Connections & Assembly
Projection Method on RBE3 – HEXA – RBE3 would result in misplaced RBE3s, when the connectivity entries of Adhesive Lines were on the same Part.

Shell Mesh
Running the script function mesh.ReconstructShells() would occasionally lead to unexpected termination, due to corrupted tria shells with common nodes in wrong positions.

DECKs
Occasionally, when opening (via File > Input) large files of whole vehicle models containing approx. 5 to 10 million elements and 500 to1000 MB in size, the Database Browser update would require more time than expected.

Report
In Deck Report and Deck Info, requesting "Batch mesh statistics" for multiple scenarios, would fail.

For LS-DYNA models, scaled mass would be erroneously calculated, in case MAREA mass existed in the model.

Moreover, in Radioss, TOTAL MASS would be erroneously calculated after a Subsystems DM> Change Representation of Lumped Mass.


━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
Enhancements and known issues resolved in META
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━ <Known issues resolved in META>
General
META would unexpectedly terminate, when launcher.txt file had a reference to an *.xml file that didn't exist.

Read Results
When reading LS-DYNA results, the Integration Points order for tetrahedron elements and the mean pressure result would not be read properly.

Also, Radioss USER VAR 5 results were occasionally not read correctly.

Managing Curve Data
Curves of AnimatorDB couldn't be plotted, when an Animator database was read like a common 2d-time history file.

Managing Curve Data
When reading Contribution analysis results without Total Curve, the corresponding plots were not populated correctly.

NVH Calculators
The numerical accuracy for transient response analysis has been improved for cases where rigid body modes contribute to the response.

Report
Adding an *.xlsm file in the Report Composer would produce an error, when saving the report as a *.pptx file.

File Export
Unexpected termination could occur while generating preview of the exported CSV Results file.

CompositePost Toolbar
The execution of Plot results 2D vs. Thickness command would lead to unexpected termination, when unavailable results were requested under Plot results 2D > Options. To overcome this, a check has been added and unavailable results are now skipped.

Translation per folder via the -idir option would not succeed in acquiring license for CATIA v4 files.

Data Management
ANSA could terminate unexpectedly when adapted Subsystems or Group Subsystems that contain adapted
Subsystems were saved in DM.

DECKs
Unexpected termination would occur due to erroneous definition of not Applied A_POINTs entities or
when GEB [GEB_GN] entities were attached to Rigid material.

Optimization Tool
The creation of the session file for a DOE study, through the Post-Processing task item, would not
be successful for other than EPILYSIS and Nastran solvers.

Calculate
WEIGHTCHECK/GRDPNT would not be calculated correctly in SOL101 case with DMIG (M2GG).

Output
Unexpected termination would occur in SOL110 with EKE output request.

SOL200
Unknown conflict would occur in case of ANALYSIS=DFREQ/MFREQ with adjoint response and structural
damping.

Moreover, EPILYSIS would terminate with an error, if USET GRID for MDEXPORT was referenced in an SPC,
even if the USET DOF and the SPC DOF were different.

General
Deleting a window while animating would cause unexpected termination.

Optistruct
Shape Optimization results from .op2 files for mode optimization would not be read correctly.

LS-DYNA
Unexpected termination could occur when plotting curves of Shell Strain output from binout files.

Read Results
PIDs would not be read correctly in .h5 format from conjugate heat transfer Converge cases,
and in Patran formats with 8-digit ID.

NVH Calculators
OptiStruct FSI DMIG would not be successfully read in Modal Response.

Fluid structure coupling calculated by META would couple two parallel structural panels instead
of just one, if the cavity free surface was positioned between these two panels.

Modal Response & FRF Assembly: In Fraction (Polar) Plots, the Range Type setting would not be respected.

Automation
Memory leak could occur when using thr script function results.StartChangingCentroidScalar().

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.
