PulsimSuite 2.3.1 released
PulsimSuite version 2.3.1 has been released in February 2023. Part of this update concerns compatibility with the latest Windows versions.
Examples of more visible changes are:
- With the new visibility manager, you simply select the parts (Sections, Groups, Lines) of the model that you want to analyze, and the rest of the model will be hidden. The function that calculates the maximum response will only take into account the visible part of the model, of course.
- The inclusion of external mechanical models and external excitation forces in mechanical simulations has been made much more intuitive, by GUI support. A SUP or JNT object in PulsimSuite can straightforwardly be connected to any ANSYS model, by specifying the external model’s name and node to connect to. It is that simple!
- Also for the mechanical response analysis: external forces (forces that are not the pulsation-induced forces or cylinder stretch forces as calculated by PulsimSuite) can now be created with an External Excitation editor, which allows you to specify harmonic excitation force amplitudes and phases in a spreadsheet (copy from Excel is possible). You can also specify whether the force acts on a PulsimSuite node, or on a location in an external model.
- In the reporting, we have added the option to report results for the (static part of) pressure loss over all OR points (orifice plates) in the model.
