Number of Element Nodes

Number of Element Nodes

I keep getting an error when I try to run a static analysis.  The error is "Number of element nodes is greater than maximum allowed Element Number =1."  It meshes fine. I have tried it with the mesh from coarse to fine and from alternate to standard meshes.

Any help would be appreciated.



RE: Number of Element Nodes

I answered my own question so I wanted to post it for others.

I kept deleting parts out of the assembly and kept getting the same error but with different element number at the end. I final had a single part with one restraint and one force.  Then I got the error, "No element group is defined."

I found the answer here:

It looks like the problem had to do with a change in the assembly that wasn't reflected on the Cosmos side.  I right clicked on the study and selected to update all.
