SMART crack featrure problem

    • SimonShi93

      Dear Ansys community/Team, 

      i have a question regarding the SMART feature within Ansys Workbench 2019 R3. Ive been researching the crack propagation of polymer composites within a CT speciment starting from a pre crack using this feature and have had consistent results with the R1 version. However the same simulation doesnt work with the latest R3 version. Instead an error message tells me that a unknown APDL error has occured. Looking at the solver output, the software tells me that producing a  qualitatively good mesh was not possible which is why the simulation was stopped at t=0,3. 

      I would be grateful for any tips or information or discussion
