First off, thanks very much for the new version of Z88Aurora. I am very intrigued by the possibility of non-linear analysis. I was trying to start using shell and plate elements and was converting a mesh I created in Salome. At first I was having issues with the ordering of points as the face normal convention is different, but I got it imported properly (I believe). However, the results of my computation are incorrect. I noticed that the super mesh analysis says the determinants are incorrect, but I am not sure if this is an issue with the conversion, the original mesh, or my lack of familiarity with plate/shell elements.
I'm uploading the content of the z88i.txt file I generate as it is not too large. If anyone could help enlighten me that would be appreciated. Thanks!
The Salome element 208 is equivalent for the plate 20 or shell 23 (if nodes are in same plane)
