Error in vwtAnalysis.1.MeshSim (Code 1201)

Recommended Posts

Hello HW-Team,


I've got a problem in executing my simulation. About 25 min after starting the simulation I get an error with python and an error in vwtAnalysis.1.MeshSim.

What does this mean? The wheels are penetrating the ground and the mesh quality is equal to models that worked perfectly.

I had a look at the error position in the .nas file, but for me there should be no problem! As I wrote before, an other model "worked" at this area of the mesh (with the same parameters (mesh size, etc.).

Estimated element count should be about 60 mio.


The simulation runs on a 16 core/512 GB server.


Thank you in advance!

This seems to be a case of coarse mesh and the batch mesher not being able to create boundary layers near those coarse elements.


There are two remedies:

- finer mesh in those regions

- disable boundary layer generation for those regions (assuming they are in separate component).


Can you post a pic of the affected region?
