Hi Han-yu,


It could be that 19.1 can solve it as is, but 16.0 can't without more help.  I have version 16.2 still installed on this computer.  Archive your model, attach it to your post above and I will try running your model under 16.2 to see what has to change to get it running. I doubt there is much difference between 16.0 and 16.2.


I suggested you use a Rigid behavior on the Nickel body on the plug, since there is almost no deformation on that side. That would cut the number of elements that have to converge in half.  That might help.


I suggested you use symmetry on two planes to cut the model in half again and again. That will cut the number of elements that have to converge to a small number. That might help.


Regards,


Peter
