nonlinear convergence

    • diegog

      I am trying to calculate a two-story structure with four pillars on the second floor and three on the first (I simulate the loss of a pillar) subject only to its own weight but it is impossible for me to obtain convergence. Any suggestions?

      I am using ansys workbench

      That image seems to be broken. Can you use inline images instead and also post snapshots of what analysis you are doing. Depending on the error please provide snapshots of analysis settings, contacts, boundary conditions or the materials used?

      It will also help if you can show the error, force-convergence & newton-raphson residuals plots
