      hi,


      i am doing a semi elliptical crack growth on a quarter part of the body by using symmetry option. but when i am trying to do crack propagation i am encountering a problem to find the node matching to propagate. can any one suggest me any other options

      Hi, Can you post an image of what you are doing? 


      Most likely the crack path is on the symmetry plane which is not supported.

      hi SandeepMedikonda


      i have attached the ansys file, is there any alternative way to do the crack propagation because my crack path is on the symmetry plane.


       


      Thank you
