Hi

Can you do the following:

Use linear material, and no large deflections, and only gravity (no thermal loads) and see if that runs.
Same as 2., but add large deflections.
Same as 3., and add add NL material.
Same as 4., and add thermal loads.
Let us know the outcome of this and we will give some more feedback.

Thank you

Erik
