Total strain energy plot - non-linear

Question asked by Azman Tauhid on Aug 9, 2012

I have this strange plot for total strain energy. The energy unit does not show up on the plot, and when I "list selected" the whole structure, the sum energy is almost zero. This has got be some bugs. I did the same thing using static linear, and results shows closer to what I would expect. see plot below

Non-Linear plot - no unit of energy??

Linear plot of using same conditions. sum looks more realistic.
