DESCRIPTION:

        SUPERELEMENT WITH SAME NAME AS A MEMBER OR FINITE ELEMENT

     If a superelement is given the same name (identifier) using the
SUPERELEMENT DEFINITION command as a member or finite element, an abort
will occur during a subsequent DEVELOP STATIC PROPERTIES command.

Workaround:

     The documentation states that a superelement must have a unique name
- different than any member or finite element.

Applicable Sections of the Documentation:

SUPERELEMENT DEFINITION        -        Section 2.3.11.1, Volume 3,
                                        GTSTRUDL User's Manual

                                        GTSTRUDL User's Manual

Note: Superelement became a release feature in version 9301. Other
version (9101, 9201, ...) had superelements as prerelease (non-QA'd)
feature.

DESCRIPTION:

             CALCULATE AVERAGE WITH DYNAMIC LOADINGS ACTIVE

     The CALCULATE AVERAGE command will abort if dynamic loadings
(transient, response spectra, or harmonic) are active when the command is
specified,

Workaround:

     Use the LOAD LIST command to activate only static loadings which
contain results from either a STIFFNESS ANALYSIS or NONLINEAR ANALYSIS.
Note that dynamic analysis results may be copied into pseudo-static
loadings using the CREATE PSEUDO STATIC LOADING command.  The CALCULATE
AVERAGE command may then be used to output the results of the PSEUDO
STATIC loading.
