Hi yashwanth,

it seems there was a problem with the element CBEAM 188. I think it is a duplicate element. And I found more duplicates in your model, I deleted them. There is one more error in your model you hav to define the static load in your model. You have used the SPC for both SPC and Load. Define some load and the model has to run succesfully. I have uploaded the model below. Hope it helped you.

i have gone through your model & few things which would like  to share you -


1. For Material ( E & U should be specified for Isotropic Materials ) & U was missing in your model 


2. For Meshing -

a. Check for Duplicates

b. Check for Connectivity

C. Check for Mesh Orientation Error


3. BCs -

a. SPC & Force should be in Separate load collectors

b. Constraints should be applied at proper locations like suspension pickup points, while in your case it should was applied on Cross-members as well. Which you need to remove & try to understand the Physics of the problem. Kindly update these things.


You can check all above provide steps & if the problem persist them let us know.
