Smeared reinforcing of shell elements

      Hi,


      I am using mechanical model of Ansys Workbench . I am facing problem as I want to reinforce SHELL181 element using the smeared reinforcement approach. With help of the below APDL command I have tried to create/define the smeared reinforcement.


      But I receive an error during solution phase: "An unknown error occurred during solution.  Check the Solver Output on the Solution Information object for possible causes". When I go to the solution information I see that there is no error message:


      NUMBER OF WARNING MESSAGES ENCOUNTERED=          2
      NUMBER OF ERROR   MESSAGES ENCOUNTERED=          0


      I kindly would like to ask if anyone has an idea about possible solution for this problem.
