DESCRIPTION:

               SUPERELEMENTS WITH INACTIVE BOUNDARY NODES

An abort will occur during the STIFFNESS ANALYSIS or the PERFORM
ASSEMBLY
commands if the boundary nodes of a superelement are inactive. 
The
problem that detected the problem contained numerous
superelements.  The
user incorrectly specified the boundary nodes of a later
superelement
which caused the boundary nodes of an earlier superelement to be
inactivated.  Only the boundary nodes of a superelement are
active during
a STIFFNESS ANALYSIS or PERFORM ASSEMBLY command - all internal
nodes are
inactivated.

Workaround:

The user must check and correctly specify the boundary nodes of
all
superelements.

Applicable Sections of the Documentation:

Definition of Superelement -  Section 2.3.11.1 of Volume 3 of the
                              GTSTRUDL User's Manual.
