Enhancements in µETA
Crash report: When µETA crashes, a message will popup prompting the user to save the current session file or quit the program. In either way a .dmp file will be written in the current directory to help debug the problem.
A new read option named “Exclude Singularity elements”, both for scalar and vector nodal results has been introduced. Activating this option selectively excludes from the nodal results’ calculation values of nodes connected to rigid boundary condition entities and to specific Sets.
A new toolbar, named "Views", has been added to interactively manipulate the model view.
Abaqus: - Abaqus CFD results are now supported. – Abaqus beam elements are now read and drawn with their arbitrary shape cross section.
ANSYS: Contact results are now supported.
ANSYS CFX: Results are now supported for reading and post-processing.
CFD++: Supported now in the Section forces tool of µETA.
FieldView: Results are now supported for reading and post-processing.
LS-DYNA: support for: - LS-DYNA CFD results, -The MAT_USER_DEFINED_MATERIALS_MODELS and DATABASE_EXTENT BINARY keywords, and – Time history files “relax”.
MEDINA: The SKFENP keyword result is now supported.
Pam-Crash: FEMZIP ERF files are now supported.
RadTherm: Volume elements and results are now supported.
New fringe options for section results’ visualization have been introduced.
Calculation and graph-plotting integrals, and their weighted averages of values of PIDs from the Statistics list.
Calculation of Flow Uniformity Index in the Statistics list.
Streamlines can be drawn as pathlines for transient vector fields.
Sets can now be automatically created for GEBs and CONNECTORs defined in the input file.
Support of .pptx report layouts.
Rearranging the order of slides is now possible within the tree list of report slides.
Video file animation is now supported.
It is now possible to save report slides in .jpg and .png format.
Enhanced plotting of Neck injury criterion (Nij) results.
A new toolbar named Occupant injury Criteria has been added to automate the extraction of real-life and simulation results.
The pedestrian toolbar can now calculate the remaining depth and velocity in the summary table.
The BusRollover toolbar can now calculate the survival space using specific nodes on the vehicle superstructure.
Known issues resolved in µETA
Nastran: MAT 10 was wrongly listed as MAT1.
Pam-Crash: Part thickness and element & node names would not be read from ERF files.
Entity names were not read by plotting from the ERFH5 files.
Nastran *.pch files from ERP SORT2 analyses would not be read.
