Hi, How is PIPE288 element type different from its previous version PIPE16 (Ansys v. 14) ? I was reading a tutorial which modeled a cantilever beam with PIPE16 model using real constants to define the pipe thickness and outer thickness. But according to my software version PIPE288 does not require any real constants. So I had to assign those values using SECTYPE and SECDATA commands. The result I got was different from that of the tutorial. I would like to know why? Thank You in advance!
