Penetration Problem in Ansys Workbench

      Hi Everyone,


      I am trying to analyse precast arch bridge in ANSYS Workbench. The model needs alternate hinges to be formed and hence a program using ANSYS APDL commands is performed. 


      The results showing penetration of the last blocks. Even if the value is small the it is not providing correct stress values.


      Kindly help me with the problem.


      The following program governs the concept:


      *get,myncmls,active,,solu,ncmls


      *if,myncmls,gt,0,then


      cmsel,s,intrados element


      elist


      nsle


      nlist


      seltol,1e-12


      nsel,r,s,1,-1E20,0


      nlist


      *get,numnode,node,,count


      *if,numnode,gt,0,then


      /prep7


      esel,s,TYPE,,241


      edele,all


      ELIST


      /solu


      *else


      /prep7


      esel,s,TYPE,,242


      elist


      edele,all


      /solu


      *endif


      allsel


      *else


      fini


      /config,noeldb,0


      /solu


      *endif
