Shell and Beam elements


Hello engineers,
I do FEA in which are combine shells with beams and the beams are offseted to represent
the sheet plate with beam as shows figure in pdf document.
In NX5 I created the model.
From the previous analysis done in Femap + NX Nastran and according to simple engineering
thinking it is assumed that the results in Recovery points up and down will be different.
But in NX it shows the same values. Does anybody have the same experience? Or Could
anybody help me to understand this puzzle?
Thanks in advace.
