Pipeline, supports, buried pipe, Error

In a pipeline of 28 km, to pass a buried pipe gives me the following error:
"Too many soild supports needed for the model. Please break the model down and use the large include"
How can you do to separate the model number and perform a single analysis?
thanks for the help

RE: Pipeline, supports, buried pipe, Error

Personally, I normally identify where all of my changes of direction are, calculate the virtual anchor length manually, and then I only model somewhat more than that distance of the pipeline on either side of the change of direction.

An answer has been suggested in the CAESAR II Forum on the COADE website.
