The Abaqus *Beam General Section in the pm1 file has an extra input when defining the beam section profile. Abaqus (Abaqus 6.11) looks for 7 inputs for the I-Section, but Hypersizer is creating 8 inputs in the pm1 file. The 7th of the 8 inputs is showing a web thickness of .00000E+00 for a "T" beam, when it should be .40000E-01 in my case. Is there a reason for this? To work around this I have to delete the 7th input from each *Beam General Section input line before I can run my FEA iteration input file.
*Beam General Section, Elset=SHROUD-1_FRAME_FWD1, Density= .17466E-04, Section=I
** offset, height, w_flg bot, w_flg top, t_flg bot, t_flg top, t_web **
.10000E+01, .10000E+01, .00000E+00, .20000E+01, .00000E+00, .40000E-01, .00000E+00, .40000E-01
Any information about this would be helpful.
