1.8  Release notes for SDT and FEMLink 7.0

1.8.1  Key features

SDT 7.0 is the only version compatible with MATLAB 9.2 (2017a), 9.3 (2017b) and 9.4 (2018b) mostly due to ongoing improvements of MATLAB graphics. Key changes of this release are

Key changes for FEMLink are

For MATLAB compatibility see section 1.8.3.

1.8.2  Detail by function

This list is not yet complete.

basisClarified error for repeated BasId. New methods for multibody transformations.
cbushmajor rewrite of documentation and introduced support commands for non-linear applications.
comguicomgui gui command clarifies robust opening of feplot, iiplot figures linked to projects. Robustness in presence of mixed MATLAB/Java figures was improved.
fe_caserobustness enhancements in name matching. getFixDof implemented as subfunction to allow external calls.
fe_cycliccompatibility with multi-physic periodic problems was enhanced.
fe_curveImproved sweep generation and many minor improvements
fe_defmany detail improvements on silent operation and robustness. SubResample command implements optimized resampling.
fe_eigtolerance strategy was changed in solver 5 for improved convergence.
fe_expunderwent a major revision allowing the use of MDRE and MDRE-WE algorithms with the use of reduced models as well as proposing associated energy displays.
fe_loadImproved generality of DofSet case entries.
