Markus Baumgärtel General RFEM RSTAB

During the plausibility check before calculating a model, the following error message appears:
Error no. 16 when generating FE network> Two or more nodes have the same coordinates.


In this case you can try to fine tune the FE mesh. It is better, however, usually to regenerate the model and the nodal coordinates z. B. to 6 places to round. You can also find duplicate nodes via the model control and in the dialog of the function choose what to do with these nodes of the program (see Figure 2).
