PROBLEM ANSYS TRANSIENT STRUCTURAL

RE: PROBLEM ANSYS TRANSIENT STRUCTURAL

Domenico9,

The error message indicates you have an object that is connected to 2 or more rigid bodies. Depending on what you need from your simulation, a possible fix would be to make your bodies flexible.

(OP)
Thanks to the "sk_cheah" response,
I also thought of making the flexible bodies, but the computation time is greatly lengthen and also the convergence is not favored .This analysis was done for all steel bodies and now I'm trying with all components in different materials, with "Bilinear Isotropic models hardening ".
The two analyzes have the same mesh and the other with all steels and is flexible to rigid bodies did not give any problem, after I changed the materials I presents the problem written above.
To use all different materials how many properties have to be specified for each material? Have you tips on how to set the materials in general? winky smile

RE: PROBLEM ANSYS TRANSIENT STRUCTURAL

The "Material Reference" section in the help documentation is a good start. I also like to look at "Verification Manuals" to gain insights on example applications.


Best regards,
