[MBDyn-users] Unknow error

I am using MBDyn 1.3.7.
You right, the problem come from constitutive law, when I change :

                "6, linear elastic generic, diag,"
                "linear elastic generic, diag,"

It runs well. Thanks for your help.

Best regards,

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.
