I want to know is there any way to apply pressure on rigid in ansys, if yes how ?
actually I'm applying force instead pressure where I'm facing somany convergence issues please help.

From a physics perspective, applying a pressure of 1 Pa to a 1 m^2 planar face of a rigid body is the same as applying a force of 1 N at the centroid of that face.
Please insert images to explain what you are trying to accomplish.
There are many reasons for convergence problems. Please explain the convergence issues in detail.

There are many posts that you can find using the Search button on this site that have to do with Excessive distortion. What is the housing material? What is the rigid cap material? Is there designed in interference?
What is the overall simulation goal for this assembly? Do you need all the detail shown in the cross-section of the rigid cap to the housing? What if you simplify the interface to a Bearing connection so there are just springs connecting the housing to the rigid cap? Maybe you should build a submodel of a single rigid cap to housing to characterize the stiffness of the connection so you know how to idealize it to a spring? Maybe the submodel can be a 2D Axisymmetric model if the load is purely axial.

Rigid cap- structural steel
there is no designed interference but to be mentioned penetration is there
overall simulation goal is to calculate life of the housing
I do not know whether I can go for springs connection I have to check thoroughly

Steel is only 3 times stiffer than Aluminum. I would not set the "Rigid cap" to have rigid behavior.
If I had a neoprene rubber being deformed by a steel part, then I would make the steel have rigid behavior.
You want to calculate the life of the housing, does that mean the pressure load is cyclic? Are you worried about fatigue?
