SOURCE version 1.8 provides new features and a pre-release of Fluent TPA.
Complex Power Analysis
Complex Power can be calculated from collocated (vectorially associated) vectors of (blocked) force and velocity. In practice, this means that you can calculate power at every measurement point where you have force degrees of freedom and an estimation of velocity at that same point, in the same direction. Every pair of force and velocity yields a complex-valued partial power. Individually, these give information about the active and reactive power, which relate to energy dissipation and energy exchange. When summed together, it gives information about the distribution of vibration power (dissipation) throughout your assembly.
SOURCE leverages the Virtual Point capabilities to calculate accurate complex power. Two new options are available for In Situ Analysis under Settings > Additional Calculations:

Fluent TPA (experimental)
Fluent TPA is a completely unique approach to working with Transfer Path Analysis. It originates from the idea that every TPA analysis can be brought down to essential processing steps on datasets (operational data or transfer function data), often formulated as matrix equations (linear algebra). A sequence of these instructions would govern the calculation of for instance in-situ blocked forces; however, only for a single dataset.
Fluent TPA provides you with the building blocks for these matrix equations, combined with steps that focus on batch processing; i.e. querying the right datasets in larger projects. As such, it combines the power of SOURCE to efficiently handle large data collections, with the freedom to decide on your own specific analysis.
Fluent TPA is now released as an experimental feature. The scope of features will be extended over time. You can experiment with it by creating a new Fluent TPA analysis in Analyze under the drop-down to create an analysis. This opens the Fluent TPA editor. Scripts made here can be saved and loaded for re-use.
