Triangle elements

Post by sanazzz » Thu Apr 27, 2017 7:25 am


I am getting an error while I run a model in Openseessp with the triangle elements-tri31 (the same model works fine with quad elements), and I am wondering is there anyone else who faced the same problem? Does Mumps support tri31 elements?

This is the error:

Fatal error in MPI_Recv: Message truncated, error stack:
MPI_Recv(186).....................: MPI_Recv(buf=000000000DB4B3F0, count=1, MPI_INT, src=0, tag=0, MPI_COMM_WORLD, status=0000000003BAF8C0) failed
MPIDI_CH3U_Receive_data_found(129): Message from rank 0 and tag 0 truncated; 24 bytes received but buffer size is 4

job aborted:

it is either Mumps or the triangle element not sending themselves correctly .. does the error occur on the first analysis step?

Yes. The analysis does not start at all. I found this could be the source but I do not know how to fix it.

Some elements are not created for parallel compiting. In my case, I use section LayeredShell which doesn't work in parallel.
