Version 2020 SP2 - This version contains several new enhancements and updates for HVE and HVE-2D, and HVE-CSI users, including:
  • Vehicle Geometries - An checkbox as added to the User Preferences dialog giving users the option to store vehicle geometries internal to the case file. This works for prodution files (.hve) and distribution files (.hvp).
  • SIMON - Towed vehicle velocities and sideslip can be entered independent of the tow vehicle. If the towed vehicle velocity is left as '0' it will use the tow vehicle velocities in the same manner as previously. This allows users to start simulations with towed vehicles already sideslipping.  
  • SIMON - An entry box for the minimum time when a connection failure can occur was added to the Calculation Options menu. This will prevent a connection from failing due to high forces/moments during earlier timesteps. .

Version 2020 SP1 - This version contains several new enhancements and updates for HVE, HVE-2D, and HVE-CSI users, including:
  • Window Positions - A button called "Reset Defaults" has been added to the Technical Support dialog launched from the Help menu. This will reset the positions of the various dialog windows within HVE to their original positions. This is useful if you are unable to locate a dialog for example when switching from a two monitor to a one monitor setup. 
  • Reports - A checkbox was added to the User Preferences dialog to allow users to choose if the date/time information should be included when reports are printed from the Playback Editor. 
  • EDSMAC4/SIMON - Termination velocity conditions have been updated so that if the termination linear and angular velocities are set to zero, the simulation will not terminate when all vehicles are stopped. This allows all vehicles to be stopped at the beginning of a simulation and all vehicles to stop during a simulation without the simulation terminating. A stopped vehicle is still free to move as a result of throttle application or an impact. 
  • EDSMAC4/SIMON - The stopped vehicle conditions have been updated to reduce or eliminate sliding when vehicles are stopped. 
  • EDSMAC4/SIMON - The calculation used to determine Delta-V in the Damage Data report was updated to be consistent with the numerical integration procedure.

Version 2020 - This version contains several new enhancements and updates for HVE, HVE-2D, and HVE-CSI users, including:
  • Frames - An option to render to frames has been added to the Video Setup. The image frames can be imported into video editing software to make custom movies from HVE simulations. The image frames can also assist users when making diagrams from their HVE simulations.
  • Saving Movies/Frames - You will now be able to uniquely name a rendered movie and frames. This allows users to choose a unique filename prior to rendering the movie, making it easier to render multiple movies and/or frames with a different simulation, series of simulations or video settings. You will also be able to choose the folder to save your movies and frames.
  • Frame Rate - The video frame rate can now be set to any value between 1 fps and 1000 fps. Previously the lowest frame rate was 30 fps and highest frame rate was 300 fps.

EDKEY Driver Installation File - This file is the standalone installation for the EDKEY Drivers. This installation process is normally completed automatically during the installation of HVE, HVE-2D or HVE-CSI. This file is only required if EDC Technical Support specifically requests you to download, unzip and run the application to reinstall EDKEY Drivers to correct a problem with your EDKEY.
