reinforcement bar not solved


the reinforcement in my model refuses to solve and I do not know why

I am a beginner on ansys and I do not know if I am doing the right thing

This is a reinforced 3D printed concrete beam I modeled and imported into ansys workbench

3D printed reinforced beam

the reinforcement bars are embedded between the layers. all bodies are labeled so i assigned the concrete and structural steel materials accordingly

i treated it as a simply supported beam, 


only the hex dominant mesh worked for this model and it got solved but the rebars did not deform. I do not know how to use codes or APDL, but i copied the prep 7 code to try to bond the concrete to the steel but the solution output got stuck midway without progress for a long time

this is the material parameters I set for concrete (its a cementitious mortar actully) and I am using the default structural steel for the rebars


please help, it`s an emergency
