DESCRIPTION:

Deletion of a rigid body erroneously inactivates any of the rigid body incident joints to which only one additional conventional member or finite element is attached. A message of the following syntax is printed when this condition is encountered:

****INFO_STMJDL -- THE FOLLOWING JOINTS WERE MADE INACTIVE WHEN THE ABOVE MEMBERS WERE DELETED 601 602 901 902

The problem cannot be avoided; however, the joints identified in the message can re-activated using the ACTIVE command.

DATE:

DESCRIPTION:

Member elastic end connection data may be stored incorrectly if the units are not inches and pounds. This error does not always occur and is dependent on the sequence of commands which preceded the MEMBER RELEASE command with the elastic connection data.

The user can verify that the elastic connection data has been stored correctly by issuing the PRINT MEMBER RELEASE command.

Workaround:

Always input the elastic connection data in inches and pounds or specify the MEMBER RELEASE data with elastic connections at the beginning of the input data before any other data has been specified.

Applicable Section of the Users Manual:

Section 2.1.8.2 of Volume 1 - MEMBER RELEASES Command

Section 2.1.14.2 of Volume 1 - PRINT MEMBER RELEASES Command
