Geo 18.1 Build 5 Patches: New Features

Geo 18.1 Build 5 Patches : New Features - Safe

  • Simple mesh specification added to Graphical Input view's features.
  • Better Undo facility - copes with undoing line addition / delete / split (but not simply editing) and region creation / deletion
  • Button added to generate "standard restraints" along bottom of mesh and down left and right vertical edges
  • Group selection and deletion of lines implemented
  • Splitting or deleting a line correctly deletes any subregions connected to the changed/removed line
  • Link to "Online demos" added to Help menu

Geo 18.1 Build 5 : New Features

Geo 18.1 Build 5 : New Features - Safe

  • Standard sets of units (SI, kN-m, kip-ft and kip-in) may be selected via the Units and Preferences dialog.
  • So as to help users to ensure that they are running the latest software a new version checking system has been implemented. This compares each executable file installed locally with the set that Oasys identifies as being the 'current' version. (The comparison is carried out locally; no data is transmitted to Oasys.) Executables for which updates are available are highlighted. Updates may then be downloaded from the Program's Downloads page on the Internet. This system enables rapid delivery of bug fixes and, occasionally, minor enhancements.
  • Graphical input has been revised and now includes:
    • switching between node and element selection (without having to change the view shown);
    • automatic switch between single and group selection;
    • setting restraints on mesh lines before generating;
    • graphical entry of seepage restraints; and
    • better graphical input of pressure loads.
  • In the graphical output:
    • multi-graph plots on the same axis have been reinstated; and
    • an envelope plotting facility has been added to the graph plot view.
