DESCRIPTION:



     Before entering GTMODELER for the first time in a GTSTRUDL session,

the PLOT DEVICE PC command must be issued, as in previous versions.  If

this is not done, the PC may hang and have to be rebooted.  The Scope

Environment and GTMENU do not require the PLOT DEVICE PC command, and if

either the Scope Environment or GTMENU have been entered previous to

GTMODELER, the PLOT DEVICE PC command may be omitted.

DESCRIPTION:



     A DYNAMIC ANALYSIS command (ASSEMBLE FOR DYNAMICS, DYNAMIC

ANALYSIS

EIGENVALUE, DYNAMIC ANALYSIS MODAL, DYNAMIC ANALYSIS PHYSICAL) may

abort

under the following conditions:



     1.   Elastic member end connections are present in the model.



     2.   The Dynamic Analysis command follows a STIFFNESS ANALYSIS

          command.



     3.   The INERTIA OF JOINTS and/or DAMPING RATIOS commands precede

          the STIFFNESS ANALYSIS command.



Work Around:   The DYNAMIC ANALYSIS command following the STIFFNESS

               ANALYSIS command will complete correctly by placing the

               INERTIA OF JOINTS and DAMPING RATIOS commands following

               the STIFFNESS ANALYSIS command but preceding the DYNAMIC

               ANALYSIS command.
