Error: Beam Post Processing for Pre-Integrated Sections

    • drdmsthesis


      Is there relevent documentation for the following errors: 

      1. Bending and Combined Stress results are not valid for a Beam Tool scoped to a geometry with a User Integrated cross section
      2. Bending and Combined Stress results are not available if the User Defined mesh cross section is sent to the solver as a Pre-Integrated section.

      Thank you.

      Hey drdmsthesis!

      You are getting the above errors due to the limitations of the Beam Tool.

      The Beam Tool does not support bending or combined stress results when scoped to a geometry that:

      - Includes a User Integrated cross-section (or)

      - Includes a user-defined cross-section when the 'Cross Section (For Solver)' property is set to the Pre-Integrated option. Specify the Mesh setting for this property in order to obtain the stress results.

      - Originated from the SpaceClaim Eurocode Library.
