Title: Product: Siebel CR: Failed elements are not deactivated in PFA Marc 1-285939129

Fixed in Release:

Marc - 2011

Description ( External ): The number of layers of a shell element with regular material should be odd due to the integration procedure (Simpson's rule). This is automatically enforced in the code, but was accidentally also done for composite materials. The extra layer usually did no harm, but for progressive failure analysis with element deactivation it had the effect that elements were never deactivated if the number of layers were even. Elements are deactivated when all layers have failed, but the erroneous extra layer would never fail since it was not active.

MARC-1313
Title: Product: Siebel CR: Fixed in Release: Incorrect post file for magneto/struct job with Maxwell Stress Tensor Lorentz Force calculation Marc 1-286654571 Marc - 2011

Description ( External ): In a coupled magnetostatic-structural analysis the Lorentz force was only written to the postfile when the Maxwell Stress Tensor method was used. Since this method is chosen in a loadcase the postfile did not contain this force in increment zero. Also when for some loadcases the Virtual Work Method method was used the vector would be missing for these loadcase increments. Now the vector is always written when requested irrespective of the method being used. By default, however, this vector is not written, since only the summation of this force over a body has a physical meaning.

Description ( External ):

In a parallel DDM analysis using the Multifrontal Sparse Direct Solver (solver 8) results could deviate from the results obtained for the same job in a serial run. The deviations can be reduced by using a tighter tolerance on the SOLVER input (e.g. 1.0E-6). On platforms where the Pardiso (solver 11) or the MUMPS (solver 12) solver are available it is recommended to use to these solvers instead. They often are faster than solver 8 and don't show the deviations when comparing results from parallel and serial runs.

MARC-1279
Title: Product: Default creep testing tolerances Marc

Siebel CR: Fixed in Release:

1-287501480 Marc - 2011

Description ( External ): Mentat wrote the same convergence criteria values for either relative or absolute creep testing. The default auto creep tolerances on creep strain change and stress change were also inconsistent with the ones documented in volume C when the absolute testing option was used. The tolerances for relative testing were also being used for absolute testing. Absolute testing will now use a default creep strain change of 0.01 and a default stress change of 100.

MARC-1278
Title: Product: Siebel CR: Fixed in Release: nodes are sticking to NURBS curves in contact analysis at span points Marc 1-287513789 Marc - 2011

Description ( External ): In a contact analysis using NURBS with order (M) and having multiple occurrences of (M-1) knot vectors immediately following each other (e.g. 0 0 0 1 1 2 2 2 2 3 3 4 4 4) the contact could result in incorrect sticking of nodes at the span points.

MARC-1277
Title: Product: Siebel CR: Fixed in Release: Plastic heat generation not working together with remeshing Marc 1-287534141 Marc - 2011

Description ( External ): Plastic heat generation was not working together with remeshing in coupled thermal/structural analysis.

Description ( External ): In a two-dimensional contact interference closure analysis the interference direction between a NURBS curve and the nodes would be incorrect. With other types of rigid bodies the direction was correct.

MARC-1272
Title: Product: Siebel CR: Fixed in Release: In weld modeling the total heat received by the model does not match the applied power Marc 1-287648462 Marc - 2011

Description ( External ): In a weld modeling analysis using the weld path tool and a volumetric heat flux, the total heat received by the model did not match the applied power.

MARC-1269
Title: Product: Siebel CR: Fixed in Release: Coupled analysis with thick shell (reduced integration - element 140) gives bad results. Marc 1-287691090 Marc - 2011

Description ( External ): In a coupled thermal-stress analysis the temperature mapping from the fully integrated thermal shell element type 85 to its structural counterpart the reduced integration structural shell element type 140 was incorrect. This could lead to e.g. unsymmetric results where symmetric ones were expected. Mappings between element types 85 and 75 (also fully integrated) were not affected.

MARC-1267
Title: Product: Siebel CR: Fixed in Release: Incorrect strain energy density and equivalent elastic strain Marc 1-287721501 Marc - 2011

Description ( External ): The calculated strain energy density for Mooney materials was incorrect when the strain energy function had a nonzero C30 coefficient.

Description ( External ): The SOIL option with an exponential cap model in Marc was not correctly read by Mentat. This had to be explicitly set in Mentat after reading the model.

MARC-1239
Title: Product: Siebel CR: Fixed in Release: In the deact glue area. not all new nodes created from local refinement are added to the list Marc 1-288086801 Marc - 2011

Description ( External ): Deact glue combined with local adaptivity may go wrong if "hanging nodes" due to the local adaptivity refinement were in the deact glue region.

MARC-1237
Title: Product: Siebel CR: Fixed in Release: SDRC Marc 1-288118246 Marc - 2011

Description ( External ): For higher order elements (6-node triangular, 8-node quadrilateral, 10-node tetrahedral and 20-node hexahedral elements), the stress output in a .unv file was based on an incorrect connectivity.

MARC-1232
Title: Product: Siebel CR: Fixed in Release: Marc reader in Mentat cannot read in structural anisotropic material Marc 1-288207335 Marc - 2011

Title: Product: Siebel CR: Fixed in Release: There is a difference between results (deformation; nodal disp) in t16 and in t19 Marc 1-288247051 Marc - 2011

Description ( External ): The Mentat formatted postfile reader had a problem with floating point numbers where the exponent part contained 3 digits (1.0e-100 or 1.0e+100). For such numbers the exponent part would be read incorrectly. Binary postfiles were not affected.

MARC-1225
Title: Product: Siebel CR: Fixed in Release: I can not execute a job with user subroutine from mentat. Marc 1-288256851 Marc - 2011

Description ( External ): Marc jobs could not be run from within Mentat on network shares if they were accessed through their UNC path on Windows (i.e. via \\server\share). This is in fact not possible, but was not properly protected. Mentat will now refuse to submit a job from a UNC path. As a workaround the network drive could be mapped onto a drive letter and then opening the model file on the letter drive, instead of through its UNC path.

MARC-1224
Title: Product: Siebel CR: Fixed in Release: rigid body contact (2D) Marc 1-288316831 Marc - 2011

MARC-1137
Title: Product: Siebel CR: Fixed in Release: Scalar Plot NUMERICS may behave differently from CONTOUR BANDS when using ISOLATE ELEMENTS Marc 1-48687621 Marc - 2011

Description ( External ): There were problems with numerics and symbol plots in Mentat in combination with isolate elements and post files on which the mesh would change (due to remeshing, element activation/deactivation, etc). If an element set or a contact body would be isolated in a particular increment and the user would skip to another increment with a different mesh, then the elements of the new mesh in that set or body remained isolated, but Mentat would display the non-isolated values of element quantities (usually all zeros) for the nodes of these elements.
