Corrected: mosaic plot for destructed nolinear bars; mosaic plot is generated from analysis results of physically nonlinear problems
In geometric transformation of finite elements (intersection, division, union of FE): clarified location of linear distributed loads applied to the plate rib in transformed elements
Arranged: simultaneous presentation of elevations and masonry levels on design model
Resolved: repetition of certain colours in adjusted colour palettes for reinforcement when you edit ranges
Clarified: information data in the working window of the program when you display total selected reinforcement for bars (as diagrams)

Corrected: update of list of stiffnesses from FEA in the ‘Stiffness and materials’ dialog box for Undo/Redo options
Correñted: possible program crash in case ‘Select vertical bars’ and ‘Select horizontal bars’ modes were defined - when you select elements according to the list in PolyFilter
Corrected: inaccuracies in presentation of problems with assemblage; such inaccuracies occurred when you switched from the mode of analysis results (by assemblage stages) to the mode of input data when you work with the model fragment
Corrected: scale in graphic presentation of reactions on fragment
Corrected: visualization (on the model) of offsets in bars when mosaic plots of analysis results and properties are displayed
Restored: option to use special ‘Dynamics-plus’ solver for analysis of nonlinear problems
Added: option to check data about criteria of rupture defined in parameters of nonlinear stress-strain diagrams for main materials in plate elements
Eliminated: possible failure in analysis of reactions on fragment; such failure occurred when you deleted on the model all nodes included into the list of the fragment and start analysis of the fragment
Clarified: algorithm to select and check reinforcement for circular columns according to DBN B.2.6-98:2009, no delay in analysis of reinforcement
Clarified: design parameters in punching shear analysis of RC slabs
Added: check of multi-contour option in analysis of reinforcement for RC bars of rectangular and circular sections and bars with composite (steel & concrete) sections
In analysis of reinforcement in bars with circular pipe section, clarified: ‘Asymmetry’ feature in parameters of RC materials
Added: additional checks when you save (to)/download (from) file of RC materials, and when you transfer data about RC materials to analysis of reinforcement
Pilot reinforcement (PR)
Clarified: location of mesh reinforcement in cross-section of plates for physically nonlinear analysis in case you use types of pilot reinforcement (PR) and reinforcement is described as formula (rebar diameter – mesh spacing)
Clarified: parameters of cracks in plate elements for cases when reinforcement is defined with types of pilot reinforcement (PR) - in physically nonlinear problems for RC elements and when you use NL engineering 2
Clarified: total reinforcement for PR types that have coincident rebars - in physically nonlinear problems for RC elements, when reinforcement is defined with types of pilot reinforcement (PR)
When you edit parameters of PR types, the program saves data about previously defined nonlinear stress-strain diagram for reinforcement
When you edit parameters of PR types, if data is defined in tabular format (in the left part of the dialog box), it will be simultaneously displayed in the right part of the dialog box and vice versa
When you modify dimensions of the dialog box for PR types, the zone for ‘Exact PR type’ will be scaled automatically
Corrected: check of hollow sections in steel columns
Added: analysis of steel structures in METEOR system for generalized problem, generated with DCL (characteristic)
Clarified: algorithm for calculation of DCF for problems with assemblage stages and problems with time history analysis
Clarified: calculation of pile stiffness when pile is located in the pile group and with account of mutual interaction
Clarified: analysis of bearing capacity of piles in earthquake of 9 units of magnitude for clay soils with yielding 0...0.75, and account of hd according to sect.12.4 SP 24.13330.2011 for low beam grillage
Extended zones for values of soil parameters inn order to present them correctly on the model
Cross-section Design Toolkit
The ‘Cross-section Design Toolkit’ module starts correctly from the main window of VISOR-SAPR module in some cases with nonstandard settings of working directories
When design model is restored from the screenshots previously saved in the Report Book, deformed shapes are presented with account of the saved scale of displacements
No limitations on allowed size of design models in calculation of principal and equivalent stresses and in generation of certain types of text tables
Enhanced presentation of colour palette elements when you print screen shots
Restored: option to save model in version SAPFIR 2016, 2015 and earlier.
Enhanced: option to cut analytical models of columns and beams for arbitrary plane.
When load is generated on the ‘Floor plan’ view, the warning is displayed that loads are not displayed on this view.
Corrected: option to copy load within the storey.
Enhanced: selection of load when ‘selection window’ is used.
Enhanced: generation of punching shear contours at the column base (bottom punching shear).
Enhanced: option to cut selected walls in the AutoCut mode.
For floor plans, restored: option to generate objects by layers that contain objects with steel sections and to create piles and columns by contour defined with a circle.
For SAPFIR study version (Academic Set), new option to transfer to VISOR-SAPR the earthquake load cases and design levels for analysis of masonry.
Enhanced: filter for selection by parameters for openings and spaces.
Corrected: error in work with floor plan if parameter ‘Indicate on plan’ is defined for zones with another thickness generated in the slab.
Corrected: presentation of boundary conditions when the floor slab is rotated.
Corrected: determining base point of the door in case the door is moved.
Corrected: program crash when you generate elevation for certain detail view of dowels into columns from foundation slab.
Corrected: minor errors when you deleted node ‘Door’ with the keyboard and when you connect node ‘Access to input parameter’ (InPar).
