    Disappearing beams

    Darrin Dame

      I am modeling a plate/beam model.  I have treated some items as beams and then created bonded contact sets between the beam elements and the solid/plate elements.  On one of my models the beams stay connected to my shell/solid.  In another model,  set up the same way, my beam elements disappear and look to be floating above my solid.  I have attaches a quick report.

       

      What is the best way to connect beam elements to shell/plate elements so that the beams do not disappear?
