VA One 2016.5 3 Feb 2017

ESI VA One 2016.5 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:

  • Another significant speedup of BEM solve time, particularly on the data recovery side and for some specific cases strongly related to aerospace applications
  • A BEM memory requirement Wizard that estimates memory required for a model to allow proper computer resource allocation
  • Enhancements to allow scaling and automated pre-processing of multiple acoustic loads distributed on a surface
  • Improvements to the AVA/GSP user interface and options
  • Hybrid formulation enhancements which include the ability to visualize the direct field radiation into an attached SEA subsystem and improved trim support
  • Addition of a perforation model "Bauer" in the Acoustic FE mean flow functionality
  • Support for the importation of bitmap files for visual aid in model building

VA One 2016.5 Batch Solver ( for RedHat Linux Enterprise 6+

Installation intructions:

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 2016.5 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 VAOne2016.5_solver_1.11.5-5.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 2016.5 directory.

cd /opt/ESI

tar -xvzf VAOne2016.5_solver_1.11.5-5.x86_64.tar.gz

    4. Verify the files have been copied.

ls -l /opt/ESI/VAOne2016.5_64
