I'm running a simple static analysis where I'm applying a temperature to an assembly. I get this error message when the solver starts to run but it keeps running anyway.
Any idea what it's trying to tell me?
Usually when a Load/Restraint/Temperature transfer fails it means that Simulation has lost the face or whatever you had applied it to. Try rebuilding your model, Updating All Components and then re-checking all your loads to make sure the proper face or whatever is selcted.
In fact I applied the temperature by clicking the "select all faces" button so I'm a bit surprised that it's selected a set of faces and then couldn't find some of them again.
I'll play around with the model a bit and see if I can find out where the problem is.
If you cannot get your current study to work you could try creating a new, identical study. I have had to do this in the past when something like this happens though I think since 2010 I have not really needed to do it. Don't duplicate the study though, unfortunately since it is much faster, this does not always seem to fix the problem.
Just another note in case anyone reads this as I did. I had the same problem but solved it by increasing my mesh resolution. I assume that some of the small faces selected on my model when pressing "select all faces" are lost when you apply a too course mesh and then you see these transfer errors.
Andy, this didn't help me... but I eliminated some fillets and got it to work. I think I may have had some really tiny surfaces.
I solved this by suppressing all my non-essential fillets. Not sure what the problem is... my stress analysis runs fine with them on.
