Simulation failing, volume meshing error

I am trying to run a buckling simulation on a pretty simple assembly part that consists of two parts, but I am constantly running into meshing errors. No matter how I design the part or assemble it I still get the same meshing error when I try to run the simulation. The error is:


Failure Diagnostics: "Surface mesh successful.Volume mesh  failed.Reducing element size or increasing number of elements per circle  may help."


I have tried to set the mesh to the coarsest possible, but still no luck. I'm not familar with the other meshing options.


If anyone has input on how to make this simulation run, I would really appreciate it!
