November 19, 2019 at 6:37 pmSerenoSubscriberHy everybody!
I was just modeling a simple structure (a portal with 2 columns and 1 beam) and I associated to the element that I drew on SpaceClaims a Cross Section taken from Eurocode like an IPE profile. The problem is that when i run the solution in the Model Space the following message appears:
"One or more beams with user-defined mesh cross sections have been sent to the solver as pre-integrated sections. Beam section results will not be available for these bodies. If these results are desired, please change the Cross Section (For Solver) property for those bodies".
What does it mean? I don't get the results because of this reason. Can anyone help me to solve this problem and get the results, please?
Thank you so much in advance.

If you look at the ANSYS help page for the Beam Tool, it includes this note:
Note: Note the following limitations for the Beam Tool:
The Beam Tool does not support bending or combined stress results when scoped to a geometry that:
Includes a user-defined cross-section.
Originated from the SpaceClaim Eurocode Library.
I think the workaround is to not use the SpaceClaim Eurocode Library. Use instead the Profile tool in SpaceClaim.
If they are I beam columns, then add an I beam and edit it to the dimensions you need.

When you create a beam with a custom-section in Spaceclaim , you will have “Cross Section (For Solver)” option in Mechanical in the details of the line body.
Please try setting this to “Mesh” and solve again.
Best regards Rohith

I have the same Problem here, and I'm happy to know that there's been a solution for it. Could you provide a screenshot where is this “Cross Section (for Solver)” option?

I have faced a similar problem. There is a warning; Please set the beam section results to Yes to display stresses in the beam elements. I tried to implement the solution you provided however, there is no option of cross-section (for solver) in ANSYS 2019 R2. Could you please give me any idea how it could be implemented here?

It is working. Brilliant. Thanks buddy.
March 6, 2021 at 10:09 amdeepakchandanSubscriberWell after going through the overall pst of the members which clearly stats that the knowledge shared here is very vast and commendable. however, the information of ASTM A36 IPE BEAM can be gained at Ranflex Metals.n
