,nAny reason why you are using explicit dynamics and not transient structural?? Explicit is generally used for cases where the phenomenon is happening really fast, Iike bullet impacts etc. You may want to duplicate this and run it as a transient structural (you will have to do a few changes though). Regarding the energy error please check this detailed post 1) https://forum.ansys.com/discussion/3363/turning-simulation#comment-4141f19e-9a0d-44f8-9824-a98b01036366 2) https://forum.ansys.com/discussion/4519/explicit-dynamics and 3) https://ansyshelp.ansys.com/account/secured?returnurl=/Views/Secured/corp/v192/exd_ag/exd_ag_impexp_solninfo.html?q=energy%20error.nnRegards,nIshan.n
