I’m having trouble getting B32 beam elements (with a rectangle beam section) to work properly when specifying NORMAL at the nodes. The ‘height’ of the beam comes through, but the ‘width’ appears to be zero.
When I delete the NORMAL specification from my *.inp file, it builds elements with thickness – but of course oriented in the wrong direction.
Can anyone help figure out what is wrong with my input file? I’ve placed it in a Google Drive here. Let me know if it is not available for some reason.
Thanks for any help.
