Xdisp 19.1: Minor Enhancements

  • If two or more imported displacement lines start at the same point, Xdisp would only import the displacement at that point for the first line. Xdisp now: (1) collects all the imported displacements from the file and at the time of analysis checks for coincident points; (2) assumes results are entered in the import data file with tag POINT_RESULT instead of entering grid, line and point results with separate tags (GPOINT_RESULT, LPOINT_RESULT, POINT_RESULT); (3) sums all imported displacements with the value calculated by Xdisp, when there are multiple entries of displacements at a point in the import file; and (4) adds imported displacements to the values calculated by Xdisp for all the points in the model with coincident co-ordinates (irrespective of type of data i.e grid, line or point.)

  • Xdisp modified to use the displaced horizontal distances when calculating points of inflexion and therefore segment lengths for building damage calculations. The program previously used un-strained horizontal distances when determining points of inflexion. The tabular output reports segment lengths according to their pre-strained situations. This change will be insignificant in the vast majority of cases.

  • Horizontal and vertical soil movements resulting from the installation of, and excavation beside embedded walls may now be calculated.
  • A 'Gateway' window has been implemented to provide easy access to input data, tabular data and graphical views.
  • The Tunset Toolbar has been implemented to provide easy access to the most frequently used views and commands.
  • The menu structure has been re-arranged to provide a separate 'Graphics' menu to access settings for the Graphical Output view.
  • The mining application has been converted from 'beta' status to 'full'.

Geo 18.1 Build 5: New Features

  • Data files may now be emailed directly from the program's interface via the 'File' menu.
  • The text output of the results view has been improved. It may now be exported to a range of file formats via the 'File' menu.
  • 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.
  • The Mining application type has been implemented as a beta feature.
