Hi,

Check the ds.dat file and find for "ET, " and verify the no. of element types the model/region has been assigned. For the element type to be change, please use the following snippet;

 

*do,i,1,14
*do,j,15,28
et,j,223
esel,,type,,i
emodif,all,type,j
keyo,j,1,11    !  structural-thermal
keyo,j,2,0       ! Strong coupling
keyo,j,9,1       ! Thermoelastic damping suppressed
keyo,j,3,1                ! Axisymmetric
*ENDDO
*ENDDO
alls
etdele,1,14
alls

In the above example of the snippet, I am trying to change the element type " Plane 293" to "Plane 223".  Default element type was Plane 293 was assigned to "1 to 14" element type no., I try to reassign it to "15 to 28" element type no. Prior to that, define the element type with Plane 223. Don't forget to set the Keypoint option relevant to the new element type...thanks

Regards
