Iterative Solution Failed Due to Insufficient Memory (Nastran 5.1)

Iterative Solution Failed Due to Insufficient Memory (Nastran 5.1)

Iterative Solution Failed Due to Insufficient Memory (Nastran 5.1)

(OP)
Hello everybody!!

I started a CAE Analysis of a big assembly, and I have this elements:

I need some help with this problem:


*** USER WARNING MESSAGE 3000 (SITDEL)
     THE USE OF CTRIA6 OR CQUAD8 ELEMENTS IN THE ELEMENT BASED ITERATIVE
     SOLVER REQUIRES THE USE OF THE PARAMETERS AUTOSPC AND ELITASPC.
     WITHOUT THESE PARAMETERS, A SINGULAR MATRIX MAY OCCUR.
 *** SYSTEM FATAL MESSAGE 3000 (SITDELC)
     ITERATIVE SOLUTION FAILED DUE TO INSUFFICIENT MEMORY

The Virtual memory that I can set is: 8 GB.

Do you know how to increase this memory?
Somebody does know how can I complete the test?

RE: Iterative Solution Failed Due to Insufficient Memory (Nastran 5.1)

I was suggesting you to use the Element based iterative solver (CASI SOLVER). You can activate with SMETHOD=ELEMENT.
But with this solver, very good for big models made of solid elements you cannot solve heat transfer problems.
I suppose you need to buy some more memory and maybe switch to 64bit machine.

RE: Iterative Solution Failed Due to Insufficient Memory (Nastran 5.1)

Dear David,
Forgot at all the iterative solver and use the regular Direct Sparse Solver. The iterative solver is targeted to solve problems with huge 3D solid models meshed with huge CTETRA/CHEXA solid elements, when you have in the model Shell or beam elements better use the direct sparse solver, is more robust than the iterative one. And your model is relative small (I see 350000 nodes), then you can solve the model perfectly in any 32-bits workstation.

Best regards,
Blas.

A lot has changed since the 90s. You don't surf the Web using dial-up anymore, so why are you still using a legacy PLM solution that's blocking your ability to innovate? To develop and launch products today, you need a flexible, cloud-based PLM, not a solution that's stuck in the past. Download Now
White Paper - Using Virtualization for IVI and AUTOSAR Consolidation on an ECU
Current approaches used to tackle the complexities of a vehicle’s electrical and electronics (E/E) architecture are both cost prohibitive and lacking in performance. Utilizing virtualization in automotive software architecture provides a better approach. This can be achieved by encapsulating different heterogeneous automotive platforms inside virtual machines running on the same hardware. Download Now
