Detailed Specification

Compatibility of LUSAS Bridge software products

Model and results files created by a lower product (such as Analyst) can be viewed and edited by a higher product version (such as Composite plus). 

Model and results files created in a higher product can be opened for viewing or editing in a lower product version provided the model contains only those elements and analysis options supported by the lower product.

Compatibility of LUSAS Composite software release versions

LUSAS model and results data can only be read in a particular software release version when it was written by a version with the same or lower 'major' version (such as V14 or V15), and also the same or lower 'point' release version (such as V14.5 or V14.6).
