Why does this tapered BEAM188 model give the message below that
integration point is outside of end stations?
*** ERROR *** CP = 4.688 TIME= 12:58:02
Element 1 integration 1 point is located outside of end stations.

Tapered beams have to lie on a line between the sections
used to define the taper. I listed tapered section 10 below.
Element one`s nodes don't lie between these two points. Admittedly, this
requirement makes it difficult to define curved tapered beams.
