Hi Everyone, I'm running an optimisation with multiple load cases. The solution gets really close to converging (in the .OUT file) the first and second convergence criterion are met and just as its about to converge the solution diverges. It runs for the maximum number of iterations (80) before it stops. Is there any way to change how long the optimisation will for so that a solution is reached before the maximum number of iterations are reached? Or does it more than likely suggest my load cases are incorrect, or theres something wrong with my model? etc.
Hello, I am trying to do a linear buckling analysis on a telescopic mast of 12m. The assembly has a blend of 1D, 2D & 3D elements followed by contacts. Anyways i have taken care of all the parameters like element quality, free edges, T connections etc. As usual, I carried out a FREE-FREE Analysis first followed by MODAL & then a STATIC Analysis (Gravity Loading). All the rigid body modes have been eliminated and my modal frequency are as follows 0.676, 0.677, 6.75, 6.78, 19.53, 19.70, 39.55, 39.71, 45.30, 59.39. I don't know why the modal frequency fetched such initial low values and how to interpret the intermediate frequencies occurring in pairs? The Static Analysis results are also satisfactory with a max displacement of 0.235 mm (Mag) and stress of 11.34 MPa.The stress flow pattern is also satisfactory. Now when I simulate a linear buckling analysis I get this error: ERROR 165- Gram-Schmidt reorthogonalization did not converge. This is caused by ill-conditioning of the shifted matrix in Lanczos run. I have gone through a few other posts in this forum which said to remove rigid body modes, but i don't have any rigid body modes as such. And it is quite evident from the static analysis that my model is well connected and contacts are acting. Could you please let me know how to resolve this issue? Thank you.
Hello! I'm trying to perform an analysis on Opstitruct. On the increment 6, the solver stopped and finished the analysis. But, I request 20 increments. The output file doesn't show me the because of this. There is no error message. In the end there is just a message "Job Completeted" and none message about the convergence of analysis. The program doesn't made the H3D file too. What can i do? Can i continue from the increment 6? Thanks! pinca_imp_aumento diametro pastilha.out
