Computers and Structures, Inc. (CSI) has released an updated (version 19.2.1) CSI SAP2000, is intended for use on civil structures such as dams, communication towers, stadiums, industrial plants and buildings.
SAP2000 19.2.1 Enhancements:
Version 19.2.1 was released shortly after version 19.2.0 to address a few issues with the version 19.2.0 release. For this reason, the Release Notes for version 19.2.0 are also included in this list.
202778 The version number has been changed to v19.2.1 for a new minor release. Models run in v19.2.0 can be opened in v19.2.1 and the results displayed without re-running analysis or design. Likewise, models run in v19.2.1 can be opened in v19.2.0 and results displayed without re-running analysis or design. No results have changed since v19.2.0.
User Interface and Display
101387 An incident was resolved where in certain cases attempting to open a new file when an existing file was already open would cause an error.
202085 An incident was resolved where the selected line type on the Plot Function Trace Display Definition form was being reset to dotted whenever a function was selected in the list. This was a user interface issue only and did not affect results.
202089 An incident was resolved in which the program could terminate if a column header on the section designer DXFImport form was clicked. This was a user interface issue only and did not affect results.
202585 An incident was resolved in which the display of the analysis model did not show some area elements when area springs were present. This was a graphical issue only and did not affect results.
Results Display and Output
202692 An incident was resolved in which analysis results (deformed shape, forces, moments, stresses) were not being displayed in the model windows for load cases that continued from, or used the stiffness of, a previous load case, unless that previous load case was a staged-construction load case. This was a display issue only. Results were not affected, and were still available in the database tables and plot functions. The display of results for load combinations was not affected. Design results were not affected. This error was present only in version 19.2.0.
202161 An incident was resolved where the wave load Current Profile names in table Auto Wave 7 – Current Profile were overwritten with blank strings if the table was imported in the interactive database.
