Problem with pipe element orientation

Dear Aster community,

We are working on a model of a pipe system, with TUYAU_3M modelisation (pipe elements).
The definition of the element orientation (in AFFE_CARA_ELEM->ORIENTATION->GENE_TUYAU) does not really
work on one of the segments (on other segments it works properly). A picture about the wrong orientation is attached.
The errors are on the arcs.
We did not find any reason why, and did not find any workaround.
I attached the necessary files, to reproduce the problem.
We use the version 13.3.

Any help would be highly appreciated!

Regards
DT.

Re: Problem with pipe element orientation

Additionally I would like to highlight some typo in the documentation of the AFFE_CARA_ELEM (U4.42.01) in chapter 10.8 (pg.31):

‘CRITERION’ should be ‘CRITERE’
‘RELATIVE’ should be ‘RELATIF’
‘ABSOLUTE’ should be ‘ABSOLU’

Best regards,
DT.
