It was an unknown error. The materials are:


- Bolt: ASTM A325


- Beam and column: ASTM A572


- Plates: ASTM A36.


Yes, I have large deformation effects ON. Oh! I have not looked at the Newton-Raphson residuals, I will read the article, thank you.


But the problem was that I was applying the load in a edge of the solid parts, so I applyed a pressure on the beam flange with the same value of the crosssection (line pressure) and it converged. The results are OK, now I posted another topic: Symmetry.


 


Thank you, very much!!!
