Improved Plotting and Movies
  • Plots can be set to refresh automatically or manually during model cycling.
  • Up to 20 movie frame sets can be created during cycling and saved to different folders.
New Commands and Keywords
  • Added SET digits command to specify decimal digits for outputs from PRINT command.
  • Added SET memory to specify RAM memory allocation within FLAC.
  • Added color option for the MARK command.
  • Added SET thtime t0 command to initialize thermal time, similar to gwtime and dytime.

  • Added the round() FISH intrinsic for arithmetic rounding convention.
  • Constitutive models can now be assigned via the z_model() FISH intrinsic.
  • Added FISH intrinsics esxx(), esyy(), and eszz(), for effective stresses.
  • Added badgeomrat FISH intrinsic for minimum aspect ratio over the whole grid.
  • Increased filename length limit to '200' if '@'symbol is used before a filename.
  • Added fish.xml to the FISH folder.
Improved Structural Elements
  • Added FISH option in the GUI for structural node load.
  • Added range for grids when structure nodes are rigidly connected to grid points.
Improved Automatic Rezoning
  • No limits on the number of constitutive models allowed in the rezoned region.
  • Added a dialog in the GUI for rezoning related parameters.
Updates to TABLE/HISTORY/PROFILE
  • Data from up to 100 tables can be exported to the same file.
  • Table/History/Profile can be exported to *.CVS or *.DAT files directly from the GUI or via commands.
  • Up to 50 colors are now available for TABLE and HISTORY charts.
Updates to Factor-of-Safety Contouring (Safety Maps)
  • An option has been added to use average velocity instead of instantaneous velocity; the number of steps for averaging can be specified.
