Problem size limitation and time step

      Hi everyone,


      I am willing to use ANSYS in my PhD and I had a question about the problem size limitation.
      I will be doing a dynamic mechanical analysis of an offshore structure and was wondering if the 32k nodes limitation includes time increments or if there is no limitation of time increments ?
      I have seen that solving contact problem can make the number of nodes go higher than 32k but I won't be solving contact problems.


      Thanks in advance for your help.

      You can run as many steps as you want, but cannot exceed the node count. However, if you're using ANSYS for you PhD you will need to be using the University licence: read the small print on the Student licence agreement: simply it's for you to learn how to use it, not to replace University tools for your studies.
