Hello Array nIt looks like your mesh is highly segmented with lots of edges. It would be a good choice to use virtual topology to merge these small surfaces, so as to create a better mesh (which might be one of the reasons for non - convergence). Check out this link on how to create a virtual topology https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u5zceTG5DnE. After doing this also make sure that the mesh is sufficiently refined on the contact faces. The bonded contact is a linear type, any reason why you are doing a non-linear analysis ? If not you could switch the large deformation option off. nHere's a link to ANSYS help troubleshooting documentation - https://ansyshelp.ansys.com/account/secured?returnurl=/Views/Secured/corp/v194/wb_sim/ds_Prob_Situations.htmlnnRegards,nIshan.nhttps://forum.ansys.com/discussion/3978/how-to-access-the-ansys-online-helpn
