Crack propogation using SMART crack

    • venkata sai prakash koppisetti

      I am trying to simulatre static crack growth using SMART crack in ANSYS 2020 R2 student version. I had given a displacement of 0.5 mm to the top face of specimen with bottom face fixed. The simulation ran just fine for two three iterations and later on i have been seeing an error as shown below. FYI i had already rebuilt the same model from scratch 3 times, restarted the software and PC as well, that didnt help.
