Tendon Profile Error

Question:

Hello,

In the attached model, when we try to add a tendon to section name FKTF, it gives such an error as in below;
[Error] The element no. 2165 is an element type in which Tendon Profile cannot be entered.
2165 is changing with different element as you may guess.

Normally, the section has being used in different models with tendon. So what is the problem here? What is limiting us in this point?

Thanks.

Answer:

Hello,

There is an issue with how the elements have been defined.  They have been defined as truss type.  Truss can't have prestressing tendon.  

Kindly modify the member type from Node/Element > Change Parameters > Element Type.  Do let us know if further assistance would be required.
