My colleauges and I have been evaluating Algor's ability to translate NASTRAN models in order to collaborate with one of our subcontractors on future projects. The tech support people at Algor have translated a model for us, and allowed us to attempt to run the model ourselves so that we may compare results with that which our subcontractor produces in NASTRAN. However, we have yet to be able to run the model successfully. The strangest thing that happens is that we will get displacement results, but no stress results. This baffles even the Algor support personnel, so I come here hoping for any suggestions you may have as to why this happens, and how to fix it.
