Nonlinear implicit SOL 600 contact analysis

Hi frds,

Im new to patran/nastran.

Nonlinear implicit SOL 600

Have anybody done cotact analysis for composite materials(Deformable) with a rigid body in Patran /Nastran?

i cant make a successful one? im getting errors sayig: During the approach stage of a CONTACT analysis, a rigid body did not contact a deformable body within 1000 trials.

But i can establish a contact between a sheet metal of small thickness(Deformable,2D orthotropic material)with a rigid body.

can anyone help me?
