Weldment Model is Unstable

Question asked by Scott Pratt on Aug 5, 2010

I am trying to analyze a model that consists of round tubing that I am treating as beams and sheet metal sides that I am treating as shells. I applied loads and fixtures points and then welded the contact surfaces between the tubing and sheet metal. When I ran the stress study I get an error that the model is unstable. Am I treating the members correctly? Is there something I can do to figure out why my model is unstable? Thoughts?
