Hi Madg1,


It is a general FORTRAN error which doesn't mean too much. If you have not tried running the analysis again, please do so in case the error is random.


About the only things that can be gleemed from the error are the following:

  • first line. DS.T14 is a temporary file used to -- store temporary information during the solving. Since there was an error writing to it, it could be a disk space problem or a "random" glitch (the file was still open a split second longer than normal and caused a problem when trying to write more data to it)
  • first line. what is the name of the file? "U:_3_2_stp" or "_3_2_stp"? If the filename is "U:_3_2_stp", I was not aware that you could use the ":" character in the filename. Perhaps FORTRAN is having a problem with that. If the name is "_3_2_stp" and "U:" is the drive, it should work as long as U: is a local drive. If it is a network drive, that could be a problem for the FORTRAN code. I would not expect the "_" character at the beginning of the filename to be a problem, but that would be something else to check.
  • third line. SRUNX is related to one of the linear stress analysis types. If the problem is repeatable, try changing the type of solver. This is set under "Setup > Model Setup > Parameters > Solution" tab (depending on the analysis type.)

It might be helpful to know when the problem occurs; that is, what are the lines in the log file immediately preceeding the FORTRAN error. Linear stress goes through several processes (programs and subroutines), so you may be able to bypass a problem if you know when it occurs.
