midas GTS NX 2019(v2.1) has been released.
The following features and improvements have been added:
New Heat Transfer, Thermal Stress, Seepage-Thermal Stress analysis types (Construction Stage)
This analysis type can be used to model the thermal changes in the ground due to environmental changes, or due to the construction of facilities, such as buildings or pipelines. In GTS NX thermal energy can be exchanged based on following phenomenological ways: Conduction and Convection.
Thermal analyses (Heat Transfer, Thermal Stress, Seepage-Thermal Stress) are available as the steady state analysis and transient analysis (time dependent).
Improving Hyperbolic (Duncan-Chang) Model
Previously Hyperbolic (Duncan-Chang) material has updated as two types such as Duncan-Chang E-B and Duncan-Chang E-v with additional parameters.
Improving Slope Stability Analysis (SRM)
Previously it could be got the result of last iteration only. It can find the results from each step which are selected by user from now on.
Prescribed Strain Function
Prescribed strain function is using to apply volumetric strain by compulsion, can be assumed volume loss from Jet Grouting method or compensation grouting.
Load Table Import/Export for Thermal Analyses
Users can import the amounts of load sets from excel file and export defined load sets (node/element number, magnitude, and direction) as well.
Database for Unsaturated Soil
Previously, it was inputted by user manually. It will be used for reference from database of those parameters which are provided by GTS NX from now on.
Improving the Interaction between Function Table and Excel
It has updated to display real input values with upgrading the base of function table library. And the Microsoft Excel file will be created with Export to Excel function.
Extract from Result of Water Level (Line & Surface)
From the Iso Value Surface, coordinate with 3D can be export with text file from result of water level.
Extract with Word Formation from Input Parameter
Information of parameters (General, Porous, Non-Linear) can be exported with image or word file.
Extract Function to MIDAS Gen/Civil
GTS NX can export ‘*.mgt’ and ‘*.mct’ file to MIDS Gen and Civil. And static linear analysis can be carried out with those files (*.mgt, *.mct) from MIDAS Gen and Civil.
Dividing Mesh Set with Arbitrary Surface
After to create mesh from 3D model, 3D mesh set can be divided by arbitrary surface. Dividing location will be determined by large volume under the divided surface.
Apply Nonlinear Time History Type more than One Stage from Construction Stage Analysis
Previously, Stress-Nonlinear Time History analysis could be applied only 1 stage at last stage. Time history analysis can apply more than one stage.
Improving Searching Method to Mother Element from Embedded Element
Algorithm has improved to search whether element is deactivated which is designated as mother element form embedded element during construction stage analysis.
Changing the Default Method from Auto Connection
Default method has changed from imprint to Boolean from auto connection function to consider frequency of usage.
Improving Initialize Function
Previously, Advanced view control was remained when initialize function applied. Advanced view will not be remained with applying initialize function from now on.
