No convergence could be reached. Try to decrease the initial time step length of auto-timestepping. If the physical contact is involved, than try to adjust it’s parameters so that convergence can be reached easily.
The solution diverged due to no convergence even after decreasing the increment size to the lowest possible level.
This error occurs when using the auto timestepping scheme and the solver tries to solve the problem by automatically decreasing the increment size until the lowest limit is reached after which the increment size can’t be further decreased.
This error normally occurs when your problem involve some kind of nonlinearity and can’t be solved under specific increment size. You can counter this error by doing the following:
