improper or no target define for contact element

Question asked by Hamiti Abd Elghani on Mar 6, 2018

Hi everybody,
I'm new on solidWorks simulation, so maybe I did something wrong, but here is my problem:
I have to do a static study of a frame  which is  composed on beams and four  metal sheets with gussets. the structure will be supported by the four metal sheets.
I kept global contact as default ( bonded) and I created contact set between the metal sheets, gussets and the beams on which the sheets are welded.
I fixed the sheets and put the load on the structure: gravity + weight supposed to be supported by the structure.
When I run the analysis after meshing, this message appears: "improper or no target define for contact element XXXX"
Could someone help? I'm lost!!

Thank you.
