  5. Stress trajectories are visible as in Examine3D.

Version 1.010 – August 12 2014

  1. In the case of constant field stresses and gravitational field stresses using total stress ratios, defined using trend and plunge, shear stresses in the XZ and YZ extrusion direction had the wrong sign. Fixed. Files need to be resaved and recomputed.
  2. Undo and Redo buttons in Results mode gave false impression that Interpret operations cannot be undone. Fixed.
  3. Geometry cleanup fails when piezo line defined. Fixed.

Version 1.009 – July 22 2014

  1. Right-clicking in a dialog chart (ie. Hydraulic Properties) crashed the program. Fixed.
  2. Remove option to “Auto-remove in excavated volume” in Add Bolt Pattern dialog. Fixed.
  3. Not able to draw excavated regions in Results. Fixed.
  4. Initial Pore Pressure incorrectly non-zero. Fixed.
  5. When importing Phase2 models, groundwater material method is now set to Transversely Isotropic if K2/K1 ratio is not 1.
  6. Tetrahedral mesh elements alignment causing initial stress computation crash in some cases. Fixed.
  7. Plane-hidden contours hide the mesh. Fixed.
  8. Adaptive load control is only applied when the model does not have any excessive failure.

Version 1.008 – March 28 2014

  1. Joint tension failure symbol: decreased in size, symbols put in contour legend.
  2. Materials mesh crashing under certain conditions. Fixed.
  3. End liner put of back of slice when automatic uninstallation option was selected. Fixed.
  4. Displacement vectors colored using the legend. Changed.
  5. Sequenced end liners not automatically uninstalled, even with option checked. Fixed.
  6. End Liner/Bolt in Sequence Designer with custom sequence or multiple backfill were all installed in stage 1. Fixed.
  7. Bug with liner results display. Fixed.
  8. Liner selection and viewing bug with all 3D slices turned off. Fixed.
  9. Added camera-dependent sorting after user interaction.

Version 1.007 – December 4 2013

  1. Isosurfaces Progress Bar - a progress bar while creating isosurfaces.
  2. Contours & Vectors - It should be possible to see contours and vectors at the same time.
  3. Cutting Plane Should Cut More - A contour plane that hides results on one side should also hide yield points, isosurfaces, and vectors.
  4. Reset Displacement - The user can now reset the displacements at a set of stages.
  5. Material Contour Options Mode - When the Contour Options Mode is Off, draw the material colour.
  6. Inconvenient Mesh Quality Icons - The Show / Hide Bad Elements icon is inconveniently placed.
  7. Custom Mesh Icon Alignment - The custom mesh parameters icons are not lined up.
  8. Cutting Deformed Mesh - A contour plane that cuts other contours now also cuts the deformed mesh.
  9. Turning Off Contour Plane Outlines - The user is now able to turn off contour plane outlines.
  10. Yielded Element / Surface Buttons with Elastic Material - The Yielded Elements and Yield Surface buttons should be disabled when there are no plastic materials
  11. Connected Beam Data - Beams are being connected incorrectly to display results. See Tutorial 4.
  12. End & Extruded Liners Together - Bug when end and extruded liners occur in the same model.
  13. Slow Interpret Context Menu - The context menu takes a long time to pop up in Results mode.
  14. Query Liner From Contour Plane - Contour planes are incorrectly unselectable in Liner / Interface mode, so the user can not create line queries from the intersection of the plane with liners or interfaces.
  15. Not able to customize mesh on Sequencer generated geometry
  16. Material Colours on Deformed Mesh - The colours on the deformed mesh should be a combination of the material on either side.
  17. Contours on XY-Regions and Extruded Polylines - After showing the solid contour on an xy-region or extruded polyline, the context menu no longer becomes available on these objects.
  18. Rotation restraints - restrain x,y,z should be different symbols (or colors).
  19. End Supports in 2D View - Switching between Front and Back doesn't seem to change the 2D view, even when only one side has end bolts or end liners.
  20. Exterior Contour Blocking Contour Planes - Sometimes the exterior contour prevents contour planes from being selected.
  21. Edit Displacements – if stage factors was checked but not defined in the ‘Edit Displacements’ dialog, the program would crash.
  22. GSI calculator – in the material properties dialog, you residual Young’s modulus wasn’t being pasted from the GSI calculator.

Version 1.006 – November 6 2013

  1. Slice Thickness & Check Model - Include a slice thickness check in Check Model. Run Check Model, instead of the geometry cleanup check, before meshing.
  2. Mesh View Plane Toolbar Dropdown - The three mesh view planes are now available from a drop-down menu in the toolbar.
  3. When entering a grid, add an option to pick points in 3D and define the total head at those points.
  4. Parallelize RecreateMaterialsMesh so as to improve speed.
  5. Dip/Dip Direction for Jointed Materials - Added option to define joints with dip and dip direction, rather than just a vector.
  6. Speed improvements, optimization - Miscellaneous updates to drawing and interaction to speed up entire program.
  7. Yield Points on Plane Always Displaced - Yield points on a contour plane are always displaced, regardless of whether the contours are deformed.
  8. Fixed bug in elevation status bar text in vertical mode when hovering in 3D.
  9. Fixed bug in copy material properties.
  10. Add ability to assign end patterns with a 'relative' offset.
  11. Add ability to move end patterns (piles, bolts) after they are installed.
  12. Ponded water drawing issues.
  13. Advanced groundwater dialog wasn't handling the 'auto' case properly for time steps.

Version 1.005 – October 9 2013

  1. Customer Release.

Version 1.0 – May 5 2013
