Maybe it is my ignorance, but to me error seems in the beam element  

# beam
         beam3: BEAM_ZONE0,
                 NODE_P1, null,
                 NODE_P0_P1, null,
                 NODE_P0, null,
                 reference, REF_P0_P1, eye,
                         6, linear elastic generic, diag,
                         7.6e+2, 2.46e+2, 2.46e+2,
                         6.4e+3, 2.29e+3, 1.62e+3;

what is the statement < reference, "iso", 6, > referred to? Try  
removing the line and, please, report. The input of a beam element  
requires the definition of the constitutive law immediately after the  
first the declaration of the section orienatation matrix.

What version of mbdyn are you using? This problem is probably related  
to a previous bug in the math parser. This should not happen with  
newer versions, surely it is fixed in the latest release (1.3.9).

Hope this helps.
