New Functionality in Version 4.3a

  • In all structural mechanics user interfaces, it is now possible to give a harmonic perturbation to initial stresses and strains.
  • Load and constraint groups, for load case modeling, for example, are now supported in the Membrane user interface.

New Models in Version 4.3a

  • Contacting Rings, a benchmark model involving stick-slip friction of a ring rolling inside another ring.
  • Oscillating FSI, a transient fluid-structure interaction simulation of a beam vibrating
  • Blasting Rock, a model with a transient analysis of the wave propagation in rock mass caused by a short duration load on the surface.
