HW11.0.120-HWDesktop Release Notes
HyperWorks HW11.0.120-HWDesktop contains new features, enhancements, and bug fixes to the desktopapplications including HyperMesh, HyperView, MotionView, HyperGraph, HyperMath, HyperStudy, BatchMesher,Engineering Solutions, Manufacturing Solutions, and HyperWorks Enterprise Collaboration Tools. The details aredocumented below.HW11.0.120-HWDesktop supersedes and replacesHW11.0.101-NVH 
IBM AIX and Linux 32-bit operating systems will no longer be supported in future releases starting fromHyperWorks version 12.0.
New Features/Enhancements
-Major performance improvements when importing a solver deck over a network for HyperMesh andHyperView OptiStruct, Abaqus, Nastran, and LS-DYNA readers. Performance gain is subject tonetwork conditions.
Importing a single solver deck over the network expect up to 40% improvement.
Importing a solver deck with includes over the network expect up to 73% improvement.- Renamed the BCs Contour utility to Loads Contour.- Added a new data type "Pressure - Signed MAG" to the Loads Contour utility that considers if theresultant is in the same direction as the element normal (positive sign) or in the opposite direction(negative sign).- Tags visualization support has been added to the Visualization GUI.- Catia reader has been enhanced to read Composites Parts Design data (CPD) from Catia files.Related to this the context sensitive menu of the Model Browser holds new functionality:
Realize ply: Geometric ply shape information can be transformed into its FErepresentation. Elements belonging to a ply shape can be identified based on threeprojection rules described next in these release notes.
Realize laminate: Laminates can be realized into a FE model. Properties are created andassigned to elements to translate the generic model definition into a solver specific one.
Review ‘by thickness difference: For continuum shells the difference between the thicknessdefined on the property and the true element thickness is shown as contour plot. Theelemental thickness is defined as average of the distance between the nodes on thebottom and top face in the stacking direction.The new functionality has been added for RADIOSS (Bulk), Abaqus and Nastran interfaces, butcan be added to other interfaces in further releases. Functionality related to continuum shells issupported for Abaqus interface only.- Three ply realization options are available:
Project normal to target mesh: If the element centroid projected along every elementnormal lies within the geometrical ply definition, it is associated with this ply uponrealization.
Normal by ply contour: Projection along a normal on a surface derived from the lines of aply contour.
Specified direction: A user can define the projection direction.- Enhancements in reviewing composite definitions
Abaqus and Nastran interfaces now support 3D ply review including display of ply angledefinition.
For continuum shells a transparent representation of the original element geometry isshown in addition to the 3D visualization of the ply information assigned to the elements bya property. This mode is enabled when using 3D ply visualization in combination with‘Traditional and 3D element representation’ visualization mode.
New Features/Enhancements
-Add/Delete vertex for shell and solid sections
This mode is accessed by pressing the second to last button in the toolbar. This button isonly active for shell and solid beam sections.
Clicking this button launches into add and delete vertex mode.
In this mode, left clicking on or near any part (for a shell) or perimeter (for a solid) willcreate a new vertex on the nearest part or perimeter. The part or perimeter will be divertedto now run through the new vertex. If a clicked point is nearer to the end of a part than asegment of it, the part will be extended.
In this mode, right clicking any vertex will delete the vertex.- Text editing on screen
This mode is accessed by clicking the third to last button in the toolbar and is the same asinteractive dimension changing, vertex moving, and thickness altering.
In this mode, double clicking on a dimension or a thickness, which are represented onscreen as text, will allow create a box around the text and allow you to edit it. The onlyavailable options to edit the text are backspace to delete characters, the ten number keys,and the period. Exponential notation is not allowed.- Delete part or perimeter
This mode is accessed by pressing the last button in the toolbar. This button is only activefor shell and solid beam sections.
Clicking this button launches into delete part or perimeter mode.
In this mode, left clicking on or near any part (for a shell) or perimeter (for a solid) willdelete the nearest part or perimeter.- Auto-weld for shell sections
This functionality can be accessed in the HyperBeam GUI by right clicking a shell beamsection in the browser and selecting “Auto-weld.” It can also be accessed in theHyperBeam panel using the “section utils” radio button and selecting “auto-connect shellsections” option. Both allow you to set the tolerance and thickness for the welds.
If the segments or any part are within the tolerance, this functionality will create a new partbetween them with the given thickness. New vertices might need to be created to make theconnection, which should be centered at the area where the segments are the closest. Ifthe thickness is given as 0.0, the connection will be set to a thickness equal to its length.-Translation of shell and solid beam sections
This functionality can be accessed in the HyperBeam panel using the “section utils” radiobutton and selecting “position shell/solid section” option. You have three options: center thebeam section at the centroid, center the beam section at the shear center, or translate thebeam section by amounts in the local Y and Z axes.
The command for this is: *beamsectiontranslate- Export CSV command now available for all shell beam sections
In the HyperBeam GUI, click the File menu and select “Export CSV – all shell sections.”This will export CSV data for all shell sections in the model. In the previous version youhad to select all the shell sections manually (and only shell sections) and use the right-clickmenu to export CSV data.-RADIOSS, Nastran, and OptiStruct sections now display DIM1, DIM2, etc.
Dimensions for standard beam sections for the RADIOSS, Nastran, and OptiStruct beamsections are now shown as DIM1, DIM2, etc., and match the dimensions in the user’smanual.- Component names are now placed in shell beam section part names
Part names created in the HyperBeam panel using lines, elements, or surfaces will nowhave the name of the component referencing those entities incorporated into their name.- Command file support for the HyperBeam GUI
All changes to beam sections performed in the HyperBeam GUI will now be recorded in thecommand.cmf file. Running a command file where you made changes to beam sectionsshould produce the same changes to your model. The commands for this are:
*beamsectionsetdatageneric- New commands to create shell and solid sections
