How do you make FEMAP assign a TREF to a PCOMP card?
I'm trying to run a simple thermal analysis (static solution) but having the following problem. I have some laminate elements (nastran PCOMP cards). The Reference Temperature on the material card (MAT8) is ignored by nastran when a PCOMP card is used. It's looking for a Tref on the PCOMP card. But how do you tell femap to ouput that? If left blank nastran uses the default Tref of 0.0, which, since everything else has a starting temperature of 70.0, causes a problem. I searched this forum, the web, the help files, and I can't find any mention of this problem.
