    Equilibrium satisfaction

      Could someone explain what error is occurring when the pop up box displays "equilibrium satisfaction is not achieved"? It then asks if you would like to continue to run or start over.

      I'm running a rotational model with one contact set between a strip spring and a driving feature. I'm running it as solids because I'm interested in the deformation of the spring over the driving feature and not so much the stress, and I can't get the contact right using mid-plane shells. I have chosen both options. When the analysis is completed it appears to be correct either way I run. I would like to understand this warning so that I do not place false confidence in my model.
