Hello, I have made a composite swingarm in Ansys and trying to do some FEA on it. When I apply my fixed support and force but when I do I receive this warning
"Solver pivot warnings or errors have been encountered during the solution. This is usually a result of an ill conditioned matrix possibly due to unreasonable material properties, an under constrained model, or contact related issues. Check results carefully."
Can anyone help? I'm not sure where I have gone wrong and why it is will not solve. I have made bonds between the mechanical model and the composite model. I tried to do bonds for all of the composite faces to them too but that didnt fix the problem.February 7, 2022 at 4:31 pmAshish KhemkaAnsys Employee
Do you see any node number associated with this warning/ error? Generally, it is highlighted that which DOF for a particular node is unconstrained. Do you have a gap in any of the contact pair (contact is open)?
If you attach snapshots of your setup and solver output then it might be easier to comment more.
