When I calculate my modell i get the following error: instability of type 3 in RX direction

I have looked at the node but everything seems to be correct. I the releases box I have tried to tick off RX, but that did not help.

Open calculatin Report , find there Max min values on stiffeness matrix diagonal and write here these two values.

if the difference between these values is greater than 1e11 \ 1e12 program reports instability number 3.

It is related to big differences in stiffenes of elements for example very short elements exist in model = some inaccuracies.

You can check it this way: on dummy model select everything, make intersection, then open Bars table on View tab. Find shortests bars. Then locate nodes \ places on original model and correct location of nodes.

If it is not the case. Send me model. You already know how.

Hi,

please find attached 2 files.

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/79282449/AUVENT_V2.zip

the first, AUVENT_V2, is calculated without sismic load and is free of instability.

the second, AUVENT_V2_SISMIQUE, contains sismic loads and shows instability.

Calculation report :

Elém. diagon. de la matrice de rigidité  
                Min/Max après décomposition:    4.067231e+002     2.066486e+015
     Précision:    2
Shortest calculaltion element : 0.16 m -> I think it's not too short

 

- Why?

- How be sure than we can ignore this instability (after checking node displacements, shorts elements)?

- Is it possible to highlight calculation node?

 

thanks
