User runs an analysis with the REINF265 elements without error. He leaves solution, re-enters and tries to resolve. He gets the following error message.

"No base element is found for reinforcing Element X. Use of isolated reinforcing elements is not permitted."

What does this message mean? Is there a workaround?

This is a code defect at 11.0 (defect report 62469). A new internal node is created during the solution for the base element to hold pressure DOFs. Reinforcing elements fail to recognize the base elements due to this change in base element connectivity. This has been corrected for 12.0. The workaround is to remain in /SOLUTION processor for subsequent solves if possible.
