      Hi All,


      Not sure what causes the model to disappear in Ansys Mech when i click on Animation Play button. Thanks!

      Does the solution output show a completed solution? Also, look at the force convergence plot if this is a non-linear analysis.


      Also, please provide the version no. when you reply?

      Hi Sandeep,


      Its R19.2


      How can you check if the solution output is a completed solution?


      Where is the the force convergence plot? This is not a non-linear analysis.

      This is what it shows :


      Nothing in the solver out Worksheet

      So your simulation isn't running at all or there is nothing in the file you opened (you must have opened an Archive). Can you right click on Static Structural (A5) and clear generated data and try running it again? You should atleast see some warning or error messages.

      If you opened an archive file which was archived without results you will see a green check mark against it since the model completed fine on the computer it ran but it was just not packaged/archived with the results. 


      One quick check is to look at the solver output but also right-click on the Solution (A6), open the solver files directory and see if you have the file.rst there, this file contains the results.


      Anyways, glad it worked.
