Calculation RFEM

When generating the FE mesh, I get the message that an internal node is too distant from the surface. How do I go about this?

Answer

This message is shown if an integrated node (node in a surface) is not located in the surface plane.

To solve this problem, move the node in the surface plane or delete the corresponding nodal number from the integration list of the surface definition.
