Hello Jia-Wei,

Hyperelastic materials such as rubbers are used in a variety of engineering applications for sealing and other purposes. In many of these applications, the components made of hyperelastic materials experience large strains, and modeling such cases often involves accounting for geometric, material and contact nonlinearities. Due to these reasons, we often encounter the excessive element distortion error when using hyperelastic materials in our simulation. In this video, experts discuss why element distortion errors occur and you get to learn how to understand various error messages and use them to diagnose and fix the underlying issues.
