Element types, components, materials, property used, and pilot node name [if used] are listed for each pair.

You can update contact definitions, properties, and materials of contacts at any time. The performance of solid geometry import for the CAD readers that import solid entities has been improved. Controls allow the original geometry to be trimmed, deleted and stitched, or simply for the new fillet surfaces to be created without modifying the original hotes surfaces.

Mass Calculations in summary templates. Ntes related to mass calculations in summary templates for BEAMS and composites have been corrected.

New API commands have been added to calculate the physical properties of solid geometry volume, center of gravity, moments of inertia, mass.

Adhesive support to connector property scripts has been added for: New and improved Model Browser.

Handles may be scaled with respect to a node or with respect to the centroid of selected handles. You can then select components, and define hypermdsh and break angle to define auto contacts. Options have been added for extended edges and depenetration for on elements type constraint. Improvements to the solid map functionality include a new capability that exposes full interactive mesh editing control of the solid before solid map mesh generation.

Only constant beam section and thickness elements are considered.

Block format is the latest of the two. The primary purpose of this functionality is to allow you to visually verify that model data is correctly entered instead of having to review the text details of the element and property card images to do the same.

New contact types such as point-to-edge and point-to-surface have been introduced. As a result, the htpermesh, performance, and quality of meshed output has significantly improved when comparing the same feature in previous releases of HyperMesh.

Available Product Updates

Nodes will continue to be written in command format until a future release. Tangency can be applied among multiple morph volumes rather than edge-by-edge.

Mapping and constraining domains, nodes, and morph volume edges to analytic surfaces described by algebraic equations can now be performed see map to geom and morph constraints panels. Fix 2nd Order Midnodes utility has been updated with options to allow movement of the internal middle nodes and an option to move boundary nodes along geometry first or move off geometry, if required. The Auto Contact browser appears in the Utility menu.

Improved solid geometry import performance.

New element configurations have been added to the special second order element creation macro. Individual entities are organized into the relevant components, with the components being organized into relevant assemblies. Previously, point load applied on nodes rotated to local systems was not properly handled. Handle locations can be interactively manipulated along the morph volume edges morph panel. This format has been implemented for elements, sets, and properties.

The element quality index can now be plotted using colors and legends. Several new line projection options for map-to-sections and line difference have been added. There are additional features that allow a partial fill of the selected volume along with direction control for the partial fill. The parameters in the. The robustness of the algorithm has been improved; more use cases are now supported.


Contact summary in script format is available. Adhesive support to connector hypermeh scripts. The benefits of the two-layer auto-bead functionality include significant notse to the interpolation of the topographical results.

Unoffsetable nodes for regular tetra meshing with quad transitions can be handled. Equation based mapping and morph constraints. Easier loading of property script for custom weld types. New panels and functionality. This provides better control of midsurface extraction for these types of connections.

Blending through the mesh option has been added for section mapping, line difference, surface difference, and normal offset. This tool lists all types of contact definitions present in the model. While interactively morphing on a plane, the plane hypermeah be inferred using the selected handles.

The adhesive parameters such as the width, thickness, and number of strips along the width and thickness can all be defined during realization. The introduction of the optimization model browser view allows you to setup multiple optimization problem definitions within a single HyperMesh session. Morph constraints and morph volumes are now available from the renumber panel. Issues related to the Convert panel on the Tool page have been fixed. A new capability for creating adhesive realization using seam connector building continuous hexa using lines as input has been implemented.

You can now turn off and on morphing of connectors outside domains. The main bulk of tetmesh model build time is usually spent in cleaning and organizing geometry. Within the tool, there are specific steps to help guide you through various operations nootes as organizing surfaces around holes, and fillet recognition and handling.
