Wired Beam orientation/ plot in FE model

      Hi. I have a shell and beam model. Those beams are stiffeners attached to the plate. The orientations and offsets of these beams in geometry model look good.

      However, after I meshed my model,  I found beams were in wrong orientations. They just flipped over and attached to the plate top instead of the bottom side in oblique (shoud be perpendicular to the plate). please see the attached figs. Can anyone help? tks.

      Which software are you using here for geometry preparation and meshing?

      Hi, I modelled in SpaceClaim and meshed in workbench mechanical. Wondered how it happened? Attached please find the plot of stress contour using beam tools,

      I've tried to change the beam orientation angle. And it only changes in geometry view. But after meshed, the beam section view in  FE never changes as posted previously.  Is it a bug?
