    Odd simulation issue, forces not applying.

    Andrew Cuttle

      I have an odd problem for a simple simulation. I have a shell model of a simple skid frame, applying a force to a set of planar surfaces I was checking the constraint resultants and saw they didn't add up. Looking further, of the x14 surfaces the force was applied to only one was seeing any load. Screen-shot attached with a high loading to make the effect obvious.

       

      Tried it as a per item and total application for the same results.

       

      If I apply the force individually to one of the problem surfaces then it won't solve, bringing up a 'no loads applied' error?

       

      Looked online but not seen anyone having any similar issues. Thought it could be bad geometry but the model is pretty simple and the mesh looks fine?
