Composite + Beam Static Structural Solution

      I have imported a composite racecar frame + suspension assembly into ANSYS. I created connections between the suspension (represented as beams) and the frame surface, and defined layups in ACP Pre. Now, after applying boundary conditions and solving, I encountered an issue here in the image below, circled in red.


      One of the beams disappeared after solving, and when I zoom out I see what appears to be one of the mesh elements of that beam



      I have never seen this before, and I would appreciate help on solving this problem. Could this be a result of underconstrained boundary conditions?
