Difference between a pre-integrated and mesh beam cross section

      I am working in a model composed by some beam elements. I have a question concerning the cross section. There are two options: Mesh or pre-integrated. What is the difference between them? And why are the frequencies and the modes so different in the modal analysis for my structure when I change this property?

      In a static analysis just with the gravity, the reactions are different when I use mesh and pre-integrated.


      What is the difference between them?

      Please reply with more detail. Insert an image of the cross section. Attach a .wbpz archive file after you post your reply and say which release of ANSYS you are using.
