The MAXIMUM AXIAL FORCES option of the CHECK command for a member with an axial force exactly equal to 0.0 for all active load conditions may result in the following warning message. The code check will not be performed. **** WARNING_STTPLC -- RESULTS NOT AVAILABLE FOR MEMBER 9 LOADING CODE CHECK NOT PERFORMED FOR THIS LOADING. Note that the loading name is missing in the above warning message. The MAXIMUM AXIAL FORCES option of the SELECT or CHECK command is applicable to the transmission tower codes (TOWER, and TOWER2 only. Example: PARAMETERS 'CODE' 'TOWER2' ALL LOAD LIST 1 TO 10 SELECT MEMBERS 5 MAXIMUM AXIAL FORCE DESIGN ONLY or CHECK MEMBERS 9 MAXIMUM AXIAL FORCE CHECK ONLY The maximum axial force for members 5 and 9 for the loads 1 to 10 is equal to 0.0. Workaround: Do not use the MAXIMUM AXIAL FORCE option of the SELECT or CHECK command for the members which have 0.0 axial force for all active load conditions.

The cross section of the member was specified using TABLE properties and the cross section is supported by the POSITION option of the LIST SECTION STRESS command. 2. The sign of the normal stress is the same (either all positive or all negative) for all sections along the member, for all loadings, and for all positions that are applicable to the member's cross section using the POSITION option of the LIST SECTION STRESS command. If the above conditions are true and the normal stress is always positive, a zero (0.0) will be output for the minimum normal stress instead of a positive number which is less that the maximum normal stress. If the above conditions are true and the normal stress is always negative, a zero (0.0) will be output for the maximum normal stress instead of a negative number which is less in magnitude than the minimum normal stress. Under most conditions this error should not govern a design since for the case of the normal stress always being positive, a correct value for the maximum normal stress will be output. Likewise, for the case of the normal stress always being negative, a correct value for the minimum normal stress which is larger in magnitude will be output. Workaround: Do not use TABLE properties to specify the MEMBER PROPERTIES of the cross section. Print out the properties using the PRINT MEMBER PROPERTIES command and then specify the properties using MEMBER PROPERTIES PRISMATIC.

The value of the minimum normal stress will be correct except as noted in a previous GPRF No. 96.04. Workaround: The only known workaround is to change the order in which the loadings are created so the minimum normal stress is not caused by the first active loading when the LIST MAXIMUM STRESS command is given. For most models, this is not practical.

Workaround: You can issue the following commands, ENABLE and SCAN OFF in order to restore the savefile and all the data will be restored correctly. EXAMPLE: RESTORE 'STIFF' ENABLE SCAN OFF PLOT DEVICE PC o o o FIN The PLOT DEVICE command also needs to be issued before any graphics commands. One can resave the file under 9601 PC and the data will be stored correctly.
