    Good afternoon,

    A good start to see what it was replaced and what it was remain the same search on Google documents which present comparisons between versions of ANSYS. Other thing, in ANSYS help you will find all element types available.

    I hope this information is useful also in the future.
    Keep in touch.

    Best regards.
