Hi, I'm trying to build a model in order to simulate a shear test on a composite panel with honeycomb core. I've been trying with non-linear static load-step but I get a non-convergent results and the error you can read in the title. One possible solution I've tried, could be tuning the NCUT parameter in the NLADAPT collector, but this couldn't solve the problem and I get the same error. I'm also not sure about the type of analysis I've chosen, do you think a non-linear transient or explicit simulation could be more suitable for this kind of problem? I attach here my model and the .out file of the run, I'll really appreciate your help! Thank you in advance. Model_1.hm solver_deck_s1_e.out
i am trying to simulate shear failure in bolt in which head of bolt tears off due to shear load. I've used type 13 spring along with a local co-ordinate system and pre-tension curve . What is the best way to capture shear load failure. and what is the best way to apply pretension type 32 or type 13 spring. Should washers be modeled as rigid.?
