convergence problems in CPT 215 element.

    • safel

      I am trying to model a reinforced concrete beam using CPT 215 element for the concrete and reinf 264 element for the reinforcement. in the analysis i have got the following problems.

      • drucker-prager cap plasticity integration algorithm  did nit converge for some listed elements and material number which refers to the concrete.

      • due to opening dimensions it was unable to use mapped meshing for volumes with openings and when i use free meshing and insert reinforcements it will not allow to the reinforcement to maintain its shape as shown below. any help please!
