Msc/Adams Error

Msc/Adams Error

I g this error while simulating . when I move one single part of the hardpoints this Error comes up :

OS-environment variable
Asol SDK. Enforces Adams Solver (C++) to use the Adams Solver (FORTRAN) message file style when reloading.

command: FILE/COMMAND=a_parallel_travel.acf
command: file/model=a_parallel_travel

ERROR: A syntax error is in this function expression.
ERROR: Statement : SFORCE/17

ERROR: (The element at or immediately after the error is

ERROR: Errors in the Adams dataset prevent it from being loaded into the database.

Maybe you need to add a FILE/MODEL=pathname, OUTPUT=prefix command to the command (*.acf) file.

RE: Msc/Adams Error

"ERROR: Line number : 1931

That is a remarkably helpful error message for ADAMS. It is telling you exactly what it doesn't like.

So, run the original model, and the one that didin't work, and export their adm files. gdiff the adms to find what the differences are, and put it right.
