Section Stiffness Scale Factor

Question:

Hello,


Whilst trying to run my model an error message appears:


 Main Control Data : In a current version, Section Stiffness Scale Factor varying with load cases shall not be used for calculating stresses.


I am not sure how to resolve this, if you could have a look at the attached model it would be greatly appreciated.


Answer:

Hello,

Good morning!
Actually the different stiffness scale factors for different load cases could be used only for load distribution in the structure.  For stress calculation, only the defined section property is used.  Scale factors can be used, but in that case, they should be same for all the load cases. Kindly un-check the option as highlighted in the image below.

Kindly let us know if further assistance would be required.
