Adams/view model error

Adams/view model error

Adams/view model error

Hi all, I was wondering if someone could help me I constantly receive this error when I want to simulate my model in Adams/view. Does anybody know what the cause of this may be? Thanx in advance.

Static equilibrium analysis has not been successful.
The maximum number of iterations 25, has not been reached.
For the last attempted iteration:
The equation with the largest error was TyreTester.Tyre_tester3 Comp = 1 Error = 998.811170
The variable receiving the largest increment was TyreTester.Plank_road_3D.road_joint Comp = 3 Delta = 7004.917533.
ERROR: Simulation failure detected.

RE: Adams/view model error

Basically there is something so wrong with your model's initial architecture that the solver is struggling to assemble it.

You could try switching gravity off, changing the solver parameters in the static phase, changing solver type, or lift your vhicle clear of the ground before assembling it.

At a guess your tire's contact patch is beneath ground level and your tire model isn't happy.
