User tries to open a dsdb file by double-clicking on it and it opens in Workbench 8.0. He wants to use Workbench 8.1.
He can manually start WB 8.1 and open the specific dsdb, but he wants to doubleclick on it and open with the latest version.

A defect was created for this issue and the fix will be implemented into Workbench 9.0.

Q. When importing a single connected mesh in a 'Patran Neutral File' format into CFX Pre, it comes in as multiple assemblies. How do we glue them together into a single assembly/domain?

A. This is most likely a problem that happens during mesh import in CFX - Pre, due to the way the neutral file was written. Generic mesh formats (especially Patran Neutral Files) have a tendency to have duplicate nodes on internal solid/block interfaces. When such mesh files are imported into CFX Pre, the connectivity cannot be established at the interfaces and hence it gets imported as different mesh assemblies.

The recommended way to fix this is to turn on 'Duplicate Node Checking' in CFX Pre, during mesh import. In this case:
1) On 'Mesh Import' form select 'Mesh Format ' = 'PATRAN Neutral'
2) Select appropriate units.
3) Click on 'Advanced Options ' tab on the mesh import form.
4) Turn On (Tick Box) 'Duplicate Node Checking'
5) Keep the default 'Relative Tolerance' and -Apply- to import the mesh.

In most cases this should bring the mesh in as one assembly, unless there is an actual mismatch of the mesh between different regions. In there is actual mismatch in the mesh, you could opt to use the 'Domain Interfaces' (GGI) to connect the different assemblies together. Please refer to 'Help' for more details on the use of 'Domain Interfaces'.

When you turn on 'Duplicate Node Checking', nodes within the given tolerance are equivalenced into a single node, hence allowing PRE to establish connectivity between the different mesh regions. This operation usually can also be done in the package where the mesh was originally created.

Attempting to use the contact manager also produced this error, and one for CONTA172 as well.

This is defect 25456, which was fixed at release 9.0. Test files are attached to this solution.

The readme81A1.txt file associated with Service Pack 1 for ANSYS8.1 lists Defect 22725 (Correct possible abort during quad meshing - "divide by zero" ) as corrected. This appears to still be a problem in 8.1SP1.

After the defect was first reported and fixed for 8.1 SP1, a different scenerio produced the same meshing error which has been corrected for 9.0.<br>(Ref. Incident 341656)

Q. A DM model is made up of one part consisting of multiple solid from revolved sketches. User generates an ANF file and reads this into ANSYS.
Why are the nodes in resulting ANSYS mesh not all coincident at the interfacing areas as expected.

A. This is a limitation -- topology in multi-body parts is not shared when the model is exported to ANF, IGES, or Parasolid. This will be more clearly documented at 9.0 with the following statement.

"Note that bodies that are grouped in multi-body parts do not share topology when exported to Parasolid, ANSYS Neutral File, or IGES format. In those cases, all bodies are treated as if they are single body parts."

A possible workaround is to execute "VPTN,ALL" after reading the geometry into ANSYS .
