  2. GSA option to import third party results

    Could be via Dyna PTF file, as Nastran results (and others?) can already be converted to PTF.

  4. Sigraph improved log plotting

    Improved logarithmic plotting
    - add option for intermediate tick marks (0.01,0.02,0.03,0.05,0.07 etc, not just 0.01,0.1,1,10,100 etc)

  9. GSA processing feedback

    The program does not distinguish between “Not responding” because the program has failed and “Not responding” because the program is completing a large task (eg. Saving the model). It would be useful to know how long a particular task will take, similar to how Microsoft Explorer estimates the time to copy a model.

  11. GSA - identify overall structure buckling modes easily

    GSA - identify overall structure buckling modes more easily.

    i.e. identify the mass participation in each mode in a similar way to how the dynamic mass is calculated in a dynamic modal analysis.

  13. Proposal to develop a postprocessor for design of reinforced concrete shell structures.

    Proposal to develop a postprocessor for design of reinforced concrete shell structures.

    This proposal is based on the work we are doing on the White Rose CGS.

    I would be happy to share my insight which is based on working with such tools developed in Norway the last 30 years. In addition I have been instrumental in the newest development of OO’s postprocessor, which is capable of doing simple nonlinear analysis by feeding back the stiffness to the FEM software and doing interactions.

    The development should be made in several steps:


    1. A stand-alone program with user input only. This have…

  16. Chart views have "case" drop down selector (and footfall charts have node selection drop down)

    Chart views could be made smarter by having drop down menus to select the case to plot, e.g. the modal analysis or footfall case - like the graphic view has. For footfall results it would be also good to have excitation and excitation node selection. This would remove the need to go through the toolbar menu every time the same chart needs to be plotted, for a different case or node selection.

    I’ve changed this to a ‘BIG idea’ as it would have a big impact on how chart views are handled. Currently the chart view is pretty dumb, simply displaying data that is passed to it and allowing some formatting adjustments.

  19. Node restraint definition by stage

    If node restraint can be associated to a specific stage it would make use of single model for multiple purposes much simpler. e.g. if you have a full building model you might want to analyse
    - whole building with diaphragms, cols and cores
    - just one floor and adjacent cols as mesh
    If node restraint were by stage this would be much easier.
