    Hi,

    I am assuming this is Abaqus you are using, if you go to the mesh module then mesh->Element Type -> select the appropriate sets, click done -> then you can modify hourglass controls. Also, if this is the default behaviour for some reason then changing to Full integration elements (turning off reduced integration) means that hourglass prevention is not required.

    Best Regards,
