Attempting to define "resultant" moments on a footing of anassembly.

It seems that we can only get the reaction moments if we areusing "shells" and a mixed mesh. 


Does this give me accurate information?  The numbers we areseeing do not match what we have calculated outside theprogram. 


Also, can you get resultant moments (not just reaction forces)using a solid mesh?  If so, how is this done?
