Strange Beam Behavior

Question asked by David Hooper on Jun 22, 2017
Latest reply on Jul 13, 2017 by David Hooper

I have a very complex mixed mesh simulation with beams, shells and solids.  I have a beam that is splitting in two?  I have never seen this and unsure on how to make solidworks treat this single beam as a single beam that will not just split. It shown below in the displacement model.  The red beam and its corresponding blue bent piece are actually one part; however, in the model for some reason it splits in two? Any ideas?

If anyone has seen this before please let me know?

 

 

Thank you for taking the time to look at the model.

 

David
