USER Fatal Error 316 (IFVDRV)

USER Fatal Error 316 (IFVDRV)

Hi Guys,

I am trying to do some analysis for my container structure. Everything is working out fine until I hit the user fatal error 316.

User Fatal error 316

I have try to rearrange my gluing target, master and source but no avail.

PS. I cant upload my meshed files as it is too big and unmeshed file(unknown reason).

RE: USER Fatal Error 316 (IFVDRV)

Dear Matt,
Open the nastran *.dat file using any text editor (for instance, wordpad) and search for BLSEG and hitting NEXT go to BLSEG#29, surely the line is empty, then the error (you should see a list of grid nodes). This happens if the mesh is not associated to the geometry used to create the edge region. Also, revise the EDGE REGION#29 to check that everything is defined correctly. In any case in FEMAP issue the command "MODEL > ANALYSIS > PREVIEW INPUT" and check that not any RED message appear!!.
Best regards,

eBook - Mastering Tolerances for Machined Parts
When making CNC machined parts, mastering tolerances can be challenging. Are general tolerances good enough? When does it make sense to call out for tighter tolerances? Do you need a better understanding of fits, datums, or GD&T? Learn about these topics and more in Xometry's new e-book. Download Now
eBook – How to Choose the Correct Corrosion Testing Method
When designing a metal component, engineers have to consider how susceptible certain alloys are to corrosion in the final product’s operating environment. In a recent study by NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers), it was estimated that the direct and indirect costs of corrosion in the United States is approximately 6.2% of the GDP. In 2016, that cost exceeded $1 trillion dollars for the first time. Download Now
