Hello everyone,

I am in urgent need of help so whoever has any information on this error please post right away. Help your fellow FEA guy.

I am trying to do a simple structural analysis of a hollow structural steel tube which is subjected to a high temperature and is kept fixed at both ends.
After I run the simulation and try to visualize it, it blows up into a much larger outer dia hollow tube.

Images are attached to describe this weird phenomenon. I am unable to explain it properly in words because it just seems to be abnormal.

Solution.jpg file is the weird structure that i get when i try to visualize
Original.jpg is the original geometry from the same perspective

The results visualization scale is huge in your solution.. Just choose 'true scale' from left top corner result toolbar and you would be able to see the real-time deformation not the 'blown up' model.
