Begin Static Solution

STATICS: Original static solver will be used with the Sparse linear solver.

---- START: ERROR ----

Static equilibrium analysis has not been successful.
The maximum number of iterations 25, has been reached.
For the last attempted iteration:
The equation with the largest error was model.REAR_SUSPENSIONN.nsr_SPRING.force Comp = 0 Error = 6237.821732
The variable receiving the largest increment was model.REAR_SUSPENSIONN.ger_FOX_MOUNT_CHASSIS Comp = 5 Delta = 980677.163237.

---- END: ERROR ----
Static Solution failed to converge

End Static Solution

Simulation failed

Analysis failed!
Please check the error messages to determine the cause.

I'VE MADE THIS TEMPLATE BUT FACING AN UNKNOWN JOINT ERROR ON SPRING TOP MOUNT
CAN ANYONNE PLEASE CHECK OUT THE TEMPLATE ATTACHED AND HELP US OUT.
THANK YOU.

### RE: ADAMS PARALLEL WHEEL TRAVEL

Sorry, where do you get the idea it is an 'unknown joint error'?

Looking at the error message it looks like the initial attempt at assembly has failed. Try increasing your STATIC MAXIT, and increasing or reducing your ERROR setting (either works, for different reasons).

You could also try a static funnel, if you have that option in Car - I am not a Car user.

Cheers
