I have a problem with the slabs automeshing property. When I do it over a beam, the beam is automatically connected to the slab, equivalent nodal loads are applied to it and deformation compatibility is achieved. But if I do that with a slab over walls (i.e. a slab beared over four walls) this conectiond does not occur if I use the automesh option. The only way to link the slab to the wall is by doing the manual meshing wich is apropiate for academic models, but not for real buildings because it is time consuming. Is there any way to fix that deformation compatibility problem?
