I am analysing a bridge made of prestressed beams. In the SYSP section, I am defining 15mm diameter cables in line with the example in TEDDY. For simplicity, I am modelling all cables at the same level as 1 SOFISTIK tendon setting NTEN 12 (for example 12 tendons). Certain tendons dont run along the full span of the beam meaning that there are tendons overlapping. When I run the analysis I am getting the following warning:
+++++ warning no. 70121 in program INIT_LOCATIO
Area for tendon 206 is very small and will be ignored
section 101 element 2000001 X= 0.000 LC 3 ITER
Does this have to do with the fact that the program tries to delete the material within the area of overlapping tendons? Is there a way to stop the programm from removing the tendon area to suppress this warning?
Thanks in advance
