Error Message Question

Hello I am getting the Error “error no. 202 in program TVERS” when I attempt to run a load combination of 1.35dead+1.35roof+1.5wind+1.5snow, and I am unsure of how to resolve it. I am also getting this:

Please check hinges, moments on QUAD-nodes, chain of truss elements …
+++++ warning no. 195 in program PHI
Node 1 rotates more than one time around its axis in LC 1028
+++++ warning no. 195 in program PHI
Node 2 rotates more than one time around its axis in LC 1028
+++++ warning no. 195 in program PHI
Node 3 rotates more than one time around its axis in LC 1028
+++++ warning no. 195 in program PHI
Node 16 rotates more than one time around its axis in LC 1028
+++++ warning no. 195 in program PHI
Node 17 rotates more than one time around its axis in LC 1028
+++++ warning no. 129 in program PHI

Any help on this problem would be greatly appreciated

Hello

Can you calculat the linear loadcases without warnings or error messages? Have you checked the support conditions and the hinges of the system? Perhaps they are not modelled correctly.
For further information, please have a look at our example files for the program MAXIMA. You can find the files within the TEDDY:

Hello, when I reduced the snow load, I was able to run the analysis of combined loads, however when I try to run the Design Steel Cross Sections Resistance (Beams) I get
“error no. 910 in program AQB
31. element selection31 0 0 1 has not found any elements or sections
or these elements are already selected by an other selection set
or only explicit forces without load case have been designed”

Could this be due to me not using the filters when inputting the loads on the Sofiplus model? I simply assigned the loads to their respective loadcases in the loadcase manager when inputting them into the sofiplus model

Have you followed the steps, described in the tutorial about steel structures?
