Why is ANSYS 11.0 aborting when I request stresses for this beam model using a complicated user-defined section? The db model contains only 4 beam 189 elements with a user-defined section assigned to them. Simple sections work fine but this one causes ANSYS to crash. I am working on an x64 with 16GB of ram so memory should not be a problem.

This is indeed due to the very large number of elements in the mesh used to create the user-defined section. The error number is defect 60629 and it is fixed in ANSYS 12.0.
