VA One 2016.0 5 Apr 2016

ESI VA One 2016.0 offers a wide range of enhancements that will enable users to address common modeling applications even more easily in the automotive, aerospace, marine and industry sectors.


Highlights of this release:

  • Generic Surface Pressure enhancement gives new ability to flexibly specify a wide range of partially correlated Statistical Energy Analysis (SEA) sources and enhance AVA modeling capabilities.
  • Overall performance speed improvements, particularly to read, write and solve steps.
  • Dedicated performance increases specifically for multi-core Boundary Element Method (BEM) calculations.
  • New! Ability to model ribbed panel with sandwich or general laminate skins. This completes the feature set for ribbed panels with any skin type using thick plate theory.
  • Enhanced non-uniform acoustic Finite Element (FE) mean flow predictive capabilities to accurately model the effect of flow noise on muffler Transmission Loss (TL) via automated OpenFOAM analysis when porous materials are present, completing feature set to allow combinations of complex geometry, perforated elements and porous materials in muffler design.
  • Ability to model uniform mean flow with BEM
  • Ability to model the effect of compression on porous fiber material properties
  • Script support for Hill criterion to predict failure from stress in structures
  • Ability to read forced response and modal damping from Virtual Performance Solution (VPS) files

VA One 2016.0 Batch Solver ( for RedHat Linux Enterprise 6+

Installation instructions:

The batch solver allows you to solve and save model files (.xml or .va1) that are platform independent. A .va1 file saved by the batch solver on Linux can also be opened by the graphical user interface of VA One on Windows. It is important to note that .va1 files created with earlier versions of VA One must saved in the VA One 2016 GUI (available on Windows only) before being used with the batch solver.

The Linux version of the VA One batch solver is distributed as a compressed tar archive VAOne2016_solver_1.11.0-9.x86_64.tar.gz

Note, you do not need to log in as super-user (root), but you will need permissions to add files to the directory where the tar archive file will be uncompressed.

1. Choose a location for the files on the workstation, for example, /opt/ESI.

2. Download the archive into the chosen destination folder.

3. Extract the content of the compressed archive to create the VA One 2016 directory.

cd /opt/ESI
tar -xvzf VAOne2016_solver_1.11.0-9.x86_64.tar.gz
4. Verify the files have been copied.

ls -l /opt/ESI/VAOne2016_64
