    Increamental plastic strain is too large

    Thulani Sobekwa

      Good day,

       

      I am running this nonlinear static study. It runs up to 19%  (step 6), then the warning massage pops "increamental plastic strain is too large; Autoomatic reset".

      Then it adjust itself according to the number of allowable adjustments, eventually the study fails.

       

      I tried to adjust my stepping options by decreasing the initial time increment and the max. increment, it did'nt work. Now I am wondering where the problem is, could it be the mesh quality or anything else?

       

      Any suggestions please.

       

      Thanks,
