BETA CAE Systems announces the 20.1.6 release for ANSA/EPILYSIS/META and KOMVOS, hosting numerous fixes in recently detected issues.

Known issues resolved in ANSA

Translators JT
Parts might be missing, when the Read mode included Geometry.
Database Browser
Abnormal termination might occur upon deletion of solid elements, when deleted directly (e.g. through the Database Browser list of solids) or indirectly (e.g. through the deletion of other containers such as, includes or Model Containers).
Volume Mesh
Octree algorithm:Small areas are now identified more accurately and, therefore, the quality of volume mesh in Cavity is now improved.
Hexa Block
Unexpected termination could occur if a database containing pentahedral boxes was meshed by the "Mesh" function from the Hexablock list.
Compare Report
Report for Connection entities would not be generated correctly.
Several issues regarding B.C. SETs and specifically HEADER have been addressed, including:
- The OUTPUT keyword would not be written, upon Case Control Command execution.
- The activation/deactivation of SOL400 Steps via scripting for HEADER [New > Loadcase] would not function properly.
Upon base.ConsToCurves() execution, unexpected termination could occur in case other entities -instead of CONS- were provided as input arguments to the function.

Known issues resolved in META

Decks - HyperView
*h3d files, referencing 2019 & 2020 HyperView libs, are now successfully interpreted in META.
META could cease to respond if multiple META sessions used femzip NASTRAN models to read results simultaneously. Unexpected termination could occur when coordinates were written with single precision.
Decks - LS-DYNA
Reading geometry from *.d3Description files resulted in incorrect PID thickness. Results would not be correct for partially loaded geometries.
Decks - TAITherm
Results in EnSight format would not be successfully read.
NVH Calculators - FRF Assembly
When modal participations were requested for a single component with no connections, the calculated results would be falsely zero.
Curve Functions - Contribution Analysis
Session command for creating contribution analysis Descriptions would not accept curve ID ranges. Moreover, the fractions Descriptions were not created correctly if the curve list displayed the curves from all windows.

BETA delivers a portfoliothat is relevant to the engineers' problems and enables accelerated performance and quality improvement, from the individual user, up to a corporate level.

As products today become more complex with more variations and advanced performance requirements, organizations strive to meet market demand for quality and improve the effectiveness of their processes. In these efforts, they employ engineering simulation more and more, making it a central point in product design and development to reduce time to market, increase product quality, and understand better the behavior of the numerous product designs.

New developments and capabilities in engineering simulation promise not only to tackle existing industry requirements and bottlenecks but also form the building blocks for new concepts that will speed up the evolution of current processes in product design and development. However, to do so these new solutions and developments must be relevant to current engineering problems and requirements while avoid adding further complexity.

To develop such solutions, simulation software providers should be aligned with customers and work closely with them to give answers to their needs beyond buzzwords. In this notion, and in partnership and continuous dialogue with the engineering world, BETA delivers a portfolio that is relevant to the engineers' problems and enables accelerated performance and quality improvement, from the individual user, up to a corporate level.

The advanced Simulation Data and Process management with KOMVOS and SPDRM, the versatile and powerful modeling with ANSA, the engagement of the freshly developed solver EPILYSIS, and the high-performance post-processing and visualization with META, have become the trusted core of simulation by the most demanding sectors.

New software products, enhance further the engineering simulation capabilities focusing on taking collaboration amongst global teams to new levels and streamlining product design from early stages. NEERE, the new collaboration platform offers all the typical communication means and augments teamwork further with Virtual Reality rooms and the capability for engineers to work remotely together on their models. The also new, OpDesign revolutionizes the product design and development process through a holistic, performance-driven method.

The BETA portfolio offers a platform for engineers to move into the new age of simulation by transforming the way they face their challenges. Because, after all, it is their challenges that drive evolution.

Graphic Requirements

Upon v20.1.0, the minimum graphic requirements for ANSA and META are: AMD or NVIDIA GPU with at least 1GB of video memory and OpenGL 3.3 support.

In case of unsupported hardware in Windows or Linux, ANSA and META will automatically fall back to software rendering using Mesa LLVM rasterizer pipeline. Additionally, Mesa can be manually activated.

Compatibility and Supported Platforms

ANSA files saved by all the first and second point releases of a major version are compatible to each other. New major versions can read files saved by previous ones but not vice versa.

META Project files saved from version 20.1.6 are compatible and can be opened by META version 16.0.0 or later. To be readable by META versions earlier than v16.0.0, they have to be saved selecting the option "Version 16.0.0" or "Version
