nWhat version of ANSYS are you using?nWhy are you using Transient? Why not Static Structural?nYour material includes a Norton Creep model but your simulation time is 3 seconds. Is it important to model creep in this simulation? If so, the creep constants do not have any temperature dependency. Young's Modulus does have temperature dependency and the thermal condition is quite severe.nHave you considered using Symmetry? Do you expect a symmetric solution?n
