In RF- / STEEL EC3, I receive the error message saying that a node with supports does not exist in the set of members. What is the reason?

Answer

One support was defined at a node that is not part of the set of members in the window ‘1.7 Nodal Supports’ of RF-/STEEL EC3. In this case, it is necessary to define support at a node existing in the set of members or delete this nodal support in the window '1.7 Nodal Supports' of RF-/STEEL EC3.

In Figure 1, for example, a set of member supports was defined for the set of members 1 on nodes 2 and 7. When the calculation starts, the message 'Node No. 7 with support does not exist in the set of members No.1. Please correct this in Table 1.7.' appears (Figure 2, Figure 3). 

In window ‘1.7 Nodal Supports’ of the RF-/STEEL EC3, it is possible to get displayed only the selected set of members by clicking the 'Show Only Current Object' button and the node numbering can be displayed by clicking the 'Local Coordinate System' button (Figure 4). It is obvious that the node 7 is not contained in the set of members. Instead of at node 7, the support must be defined on a node contained in the member set (for example, node 6).
