Re: Release DOF

Unfortunately, operating on the beam section properties won't work. For example, assume you have two cantilever beams with a common node: untitled.PNG The beams are still capable of carrying bending. However the bending Degree of Freedom is zero for the common node. Many thanks however. Perhaps in ...

Re: Running Z88

Thank you Markus... That's what I've been doing most of the time. The linear static analysis always left the files behind after closing Z88Aurora. When I ran the non-linear case, I never found the Z88Man.txt file. ...until I left the "Z88NL: ran successfully!" window up... per your suggestion... and...

Re: Running Z88

Oh... the life of graduate school. I remember "fondly" having reviews with my professor at 2:00 AM.

And... its interesting how aging turns things like that into fondly. :roll:

Thanks Markus. I'll give that a try when I get home from work this evening.
