I tried several different meshes with this model, including standard mesh. All result with out of memory error upon running simulation. Please advise ways to potentially fix. Thanks.
A description of the project and what you are trying to achieve
Trying to simulate a fan wheel stresses up to 200 rad/sec and above.
A description of what is happening, screenshots or error logs are helpful

The machine ran out of memory. Please choose a larger machine by increasing the number of computing cores or reduce the domain size and/or the fineness of your mesh.

Hello @melizabeth , thanks for using the SimScale Forum!
The first thing I noticed is that all faces have been assigned a remote displacement boundary condition, and all displacements (translation, rotation in all axes) are constrained to zero. I suggest only applying this boundary condition where the part is actually supported, and using a Fixed Support boundary condition may be another alternative.
To optimize computational resources and time, I recommend using the Cyclic Symmetry boundary condition for this application.
