BETA CAE Systems 18.1.0 + Tutorials | 6.3 Gb
BETA CAE Systems announces the release of version 18.1.0 of its software suite with brand new tools and capabilities. This first-point releae of v18x brings the software to a next level of maturity and functionality richness. We put a lot of effort to incorporate as many of your requirements as possible and paid a lot of attention to the software quality and performance. We are proud to make this new release of our software suite available to you, so that you begin the new year with a bigger potential.
Enhancements in ANSA
ANSA extends its collaboration capabilities with the implementation of the Sketch tool. With this tool you can highlight areas of interest on the model and add notes in the form of annotations, for further check/review. The Web Interface capabilities are also expanded to full ANSA Interface broadcasting.
The new version, introduces a brand new methodology to facilitate the synthesis of modular assemblies. This new approach, powered by the marking capabilities of Assembly Points and Sets, the versatility of Bolts and Connectors, and the file management functionality of ANSA DM, brings a solution to many of the usual bottlenecks of model building process that are related to the interdependencies between the different subsystems. As a result, the maintenance of each subsystem becomes much easier, the assembly of the complete model is carried-out faster and the validation of the assembly after model changes comes at no cost for the analyst.
A brand new Loadcase Manager for Abaqus brings loadcasing capabilities to a new dimension, in compliance with the support of distributions for Abaqus materials and multiple Step Managers in Abaqus deck.
Functionality initially introduced with v18.0.0 is further improved. The Light Volume Representation has been enhanced with the addition of clipping planes. Solid elements can be extruded with minimum user interaction. The seat de-penetration functionality comes with the support of non-linear characteristics of the cushion material, and the Laminate Tool has been enriched with the parametric definition of Laminates and Composites, on top of the Template Layers.
The introduction of the Octree entity allows you to create and preview the result of octree based algorithms, such as, Surface Wrapping, Hextreme, and Cavity meshing. This accelerates the overall generation process as it provides quick leak detection and cutting planes visualization tools, contour plots of mesh size distribution and more, extending the capabilities and performance in the CFD domain.
Polyhedral mesh conversion has now improved speed and memory consumption and can produce ANSA Volume result or Light Volume representation result. Fixing quality for volume meshes has been accelerated and is now available also for polyhedral and Light Volume representation meshes. Significant enhancements have been made in the CFD solvers as well, such as speed enhancements in Fluent Output and improved handling of TGRID meshes with hanging nodes in Fluent Input, Light Volume Representation support for Baffle, CyclicACMI and multi-region in OpenFOAM, Thermal Links Wizard and El Temp Menu, displaying temperatures directly on the model, in TAI Therm.
Implementations such as the material homogenization, the support of xMCF format and of new FEMSITE version, as well as updates in CGNS format (HDF5 I/O, Light Volume Representation I/O, Hybrid Output) are just representative cases of the vast developments that have taken place in v18.1.0.
Enhancements in EPILYSIS
Apart from the continuous enhancements in the overall performance and accuracy, Topology Optimization has also been enriched with new manufacturing constraints. Sizing optimization is now available including application on composites while mode analysis has also been added to the optimization solution (200).
Enhancements in META
META also extends its collaboration capabilities with the implementation of the Sketch tool, for pointing out areas of interest on the model and adding notes in the form of annotations.The Web Interface capabilities are also expanded to full META Interface broadcasting.
The capabilities of Virtual Reality have been augmented. Full support of Oculus Rift /HTC Vive is provided, in compliance with a complete VR tablet GUI with animation, focus, and inspection planes features and capabilities. Furthermore, animation speed in High Quality rendering has been significantly accelerated.
The Modal Parameter Estimation is now supplementing the suite with NVH calculations available in META, enabling the assessment of modal parameters and eigenvectors from a provided set of transfer function results.
Through an attempt to couple RETOMO with the rest of the BETA products, META v18.1.0 can now import RETOMO volumes and proceed with rendering.
As for discipline enhancements, vortex tracking and CGNS are supported now in the CFD area. ATFX for I/O in NVH field, JT 10 CAE export, Autoform, Moldex 3D and ADAMS view with flex bodies for Multibody dynamics are also implemented in this version, together with a new toolbar for Fatigue Safety factors calculation.
2D and 3D plots are embedded in vector format ensuring high quality images irrespectively of the image size, while units, curve linked calculations and updates, as well as undo functionality for curves is now supported for 2D plots.
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.
