Hi,

For the error message:

Plasticity algorithm did not converge for element xxx

This message is displayed when Ansys is not able to converge plastic deformation increment. This generally occurs when the load is rapidly applied. I would suggest you apply load more slowly by increasing the number of substeps using the NSUBST command. // Command Reference // XV. N Commands // NSUBST.
