A blank "Analyze Error" dialog is displayed when running the RAM Concrete Analysis. In some circumstances it can also result in "Analyze Error 4"
Note, Analysis Error 4 with additional details such as "Invalid Distance between nodes..." is another matter and happens when the program cannot mesh the model to the current geometry. For tips on resolving that see: RAM Meshing and Segmentation
The error is associated with corrupt settings in the Analysis Criteria dialog. See below. Common examples of bad settings include:
1. No solver selected.
2. Values of 0 for mesh parameters: Merge Node Tolerance, Max Distance Allowed Between Nodes, and Geometry Tolerance.
3. Large value for Minimum Number of Stations per Beam.
4. No Rigid End Zone option selected.
5. No Beam Torsion Stiffness option selected
We are working to prevent this from happening, meanwhile avoid closing the Ram Concrete Analysis module if the 'framing tables' process is running.
Redefine the settings with appropriate values. The program installed defaults can be found here:
RAM Concrete Defaults
Note, starting in version 17.02 future corruption of the analysis criteria should be prevented.
