  1. Answer: For the 3D urban building vector data WinProp supports the formats as mentioned under: http://awe-communications.com/Databases/Urban.html Most common formats are MapInfo and ArcView Shapefiles. Some sample databases for urban scenarios can be provided on request.
  2. Answer: For the topography and land usage maps WinProp supports the formats as mentioned under: http://www.awe-communications.com/Databases/Topo.html Some free DEM data (topography) in a supported format with a resolution of approx. 100m can be obtained via: http://dds.cr.usgs.gov/srtm/version1/United_States_1arcsec/
  3. Answer: Generally the clutter data (*.mdb files) can be only used for rural scenario projects. If you want to use some of the clutter classes as vegetation layer for the urban scenario you can do this by converting the clutter map to a *.veg file, which can be done in WallMan by File => Convert => Vegetation Database. Here you can select the *.mdb and *.mct files and then assign corresponding heights to the vegetation classes in your clutter data (e.g. 10m to forest and 5m to park). Then these heights are saved as pixel data in a *.veg file which can then be considered in ProMan (under the Database tab) as vegetation layer for the prediction in the urban scenario.
  4. Answer: The pre-processing in WallMan is only required for the IRT ray tracing models (both for urban and indoor scenarios). The single pre-processing of the 3D building vector data determines the visibility relations between all the considered objects and ensure to accelerate the ray tracing predictions. The other wave propagation models, both the deterministic DPM model as well as the empirical models can be used without pre-processing the building data in advance.
  5. Answer: Rx power in dBm can be computed by subtracting the path loss in dB from the Tx power given in dBm (typically the computed path loss includes already the minus sign): RxPower [dBm] = TxPower [dBm] – Pathloss [dB]
  6. Answer: Please ensure to define the same settings in ProMan and the API, e.g. power value in dBm and power mode output PA (power amplifier, in this case the antenna gain will be added) or EIRP (in this case the antenna gain is already included in the defined power value). In the API the corresponding parameters of the WinProp_Antenna data structure are: double Power; /* Power in dBm */ int PowerMode; /* Power mode (0 = output PA, 1 = EIRP, 2 = ERP) */ Please note that the result values computed in the API are path loss in dB (not Rx power in dBm), i.e. you need to compare to the path loss of the GUI result.

    License error

    Since the license is based on the wifi ID, the wifi must be turned on when you start the application , is this done? Please note that the student edition license will only activate the student version of the software that must be downloaded and installed from the links in the license mail also pfa, If you have installed the student version of our software from the links in the mail, then please tell us which application you are trying to start here

    License Usage

    Additional options for almutil include several reporting features as well as interacting with the Hosted HyperWorks Units (HHWU) system. In order to provide both familiar and more useful status data the following option was added to almutil: -licstat[-host -port -feature -user -inuse -collapse] Display license statistics, by default list everything Information can be limited with optional arguments Multiple -feature and -user can be specified -inuse will limit output to features with usage -inuse may not be used with -feature and -user options -collapse will collapse shared checkouts into one entry For additional information you can run almutil -–help Altair now provides a graphical version of almutil. It provides all the functionality of almutil along with additional views of license usages, etc.

    How do I apply the new license to FEKO?

    HI, We see that you have ordered the Altair student edition and this was delivered to you, The software requires a license file to function, You should find the license file attached to the email After downloading the license file, rename it to altair_lic.dat and place the same in the <installation directory>/security folder If you have set an environment variable, then the older license will be used, make sure the variable points to the new license file in that case, it is suggested you remove any Altair variable if you have set it, If you have already done the above and still face the error, let us know and we will troubleshoot accordingly.

    Error 9

    Can you please send the entire output of ipconfig/all Run ipconfig/all in command window and check for physical address under Ethernet adapter local area connection: The listed physical address under Ethernet adapter local area connection should be used to generate the license file, if there is no listing of Ethernet adapter local area connection, the address under Wireless Adapter LAN Wifi must be used.

    Error 9 in HW 2017 student edition

    Hi, It is possible that the ethernet ID changes, at this moment we see from the ipconfig output that the usable ID is the one under wireless lan adapter wifi.
