BETA CAE Systems announces the release of the version 18.1.1 of its software suite with new tools and capabilities to further augment functionality and facilitate CAE processes.
BETA CAE Systems 18.1.1 Release Notes:
Enhancements in ANSA
Nodes participating in the Explode View are now marked with a circle and are enclosed in a transparent sphere.
Reference Sets are now supported in ANSA, offering the ability to filter data according to Reference Sets existing in *.jt model files.
- Shell Mesh
Improve: After reconstructing, a new function "Remapping" interpolates the deck entities' values (such as initial stresses) from the initial to the resulting mesh.
- AUXILIARIES>Inverse Forming
If the Workpiece Initial Thickness is left blank, it is automatically calculated based on the Property, or available nodal thickness.
Known issues resolved in ANSA
Moving entities from "Out of Include" section to an Include could lead to unexpected termination.
- Model Browser
After part replace, the content of Sets would erroneously change from facets to elements.
- Shell Mesh
Fill>Holes: Unexpected termination could occur when filling holes on second order elements when reshape option was enabled
Unexpected termination would occur in case of databases with composite properties when switching between decks.
Enhancements in META
Support of Abaqus 2018. Support of FEMFAT fatigue results from *.h3d files.
Support of Altair Binary Format *.th files.
Occupant Injury Criteria: The Adult and Child Protection Scores, according to the selected Regulation, have been added in the PPTX report. The calculation of the score is supported for front and side Impact, front and rear passengers.
Known issues resolved in META
- Handling Entities
ANSA User Attributes were not supported correctly in META.
Elout history variables were not read correctly from binout files.
Axis values were not correct in some cases since v18.1.0.
About BETA CAE Systems 18. Version 18 of the BETA suite contains old favorites such as ANSA, EPILYSIS and META, as well as a new product dubbed KOMVOS-SDM Console. For those unfamiliar with this software package, here’s a brief summary and an overview of the new updates.
ANSA is a CAE pre-processing tool that takes existing CAD data from various other software (e.g., Catia, NX and Pro-E) and cleans the data up and meshes it ready for use in the FEA solver. The updates to ANSA v18.0.0 include a remote viewer, which enables users to control ANSA on their PCs from mobile devices anywhere in the world. In addition, ANSA includes updates to meshing that allow mid-surfacing capabilities, a new Align Manager fixing tool and new algorithms for extrusions.
EPILYSIS is the proprietary FEA solver that lets users run a variety of simulations, including structural linear, dynamic and nonlinear, and is designed to be used with high performance computing (HPC) systems. New updates include performance enhancements, new contact simulation methods and a bunch of new tools aimed at the automotive industry,such as a new mode for dummy seat penetration that models spring deformation under the seat model (for crash simulations).
META is the post-processing package that allows users to clean up the results of their simulations, and add pretty 3D graphics based on results from a range of popular solvers, including Fluent and OpenFOAM. The new version includes a new animation bar, the ability for remote control using a mobile device, and new visualization enhancements such as rendering materials and new lighting modes.
And the new addition, KOMVOS-SDM Console, provides users with new simulation data management tools that allow for interactive browsing, visualization and handling of all data related to the CAE simulation analysis, which in turn makes it easy to generate results and reports.
