Panel Maps after non-linear analysis

Hi guys,

 

When I run a shell element with a non-linear analysis, the results map is just black. 

It only goes black when the layer is on "middle".  I get a normal map when the layer is upper or lower. 

 

Is this an error in the program, or am I doing something wrong?

Tony,

 

What kind of results you display (stresses)? Please check the values for the middle layer in the panel results table - are they 0s?

Artur,

 

No, it is black for stresses in middle layer only for non linear combinations. 

For the simple cases it works fine.

 

Upper and lower stresses report correctly, just not middle.  But there IS stress in the middle layer.  So I'm not sure whats going on

Tony,

 

Please send us both the model and screen capture that shows what to look at (and how it looks on your machine). Thank you.

hmmm told you I was having a bad Robot day.  It seems when I run the file I sent to you, it works OK.  I only opened it in recovery to cut down the file size, but it seems to have fixed the problem too. 

 

Sorry for posting without trying this first.  :smileyembarrassed:
