Revision Date Description
72 Jul 24, 2019

New features and improvements:

  • Added new version available notice.

Bug Fixes:

  • Fix possible cell space errors when applied to PFC wall vertex spatial searches.
  • Fix bug in zone field variable system when a specific component is retrieved from a vector type.
71 May 27, 2019

Bug Fixes:

  • Updated interface node criteria for being in contact, if in tension and a non-zero tension limit was specified.
70 May 6, 2019

Bug Fixes:

  • An error in how internal state data assiciated with some constitutive models was discovered and fixed. This means some models would not be restored to the exact same state they were in when saved. The constitutive models affected are FINN, PLASTIC-HARDENING using the small strain option, and IMASS.
69 Apr 15, 2019

Bug Fixes:

  • Embedded liner element coupling spring properties in side 2 were not being initialized properly. If not specified they could have random values.
  • But fix to scale attribute command processing for plot items, the automatic state was being removed.
  • Fixed results file import/export of zone constitutive model information - including properties and state.
68 Mar 14, 2019

Bug Fixes:

  • Fix bug in zone.near, it was not excluding mechanically null zones from the search.
67 Feb 13, 2019

New features and improvements:

  • Added the reset keyword to the plot view command, allowing the view to be auto-calculated from the command line.
  • Added Python grid point array access for getting and setting pore pressures.

Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed the documentation for the plot reset command - this deletes all plots.
  • Fixed a crash bug when attempting to use the struct.mech.convergence, struct.mech.ratio.local, struct.mech.ratio.max, and struct.mech.ratio.avg intrinsics.
  • Fixed a plotting issue with line contours (Beam/Cable/Pile structural elements, etc.) when interacting with a cut plane. The contour values were corrupted.
