    solver problem:"Number of target sub-surfaces per element > 1000 "

      Hi again.

       

      I need to evaluate the stress concentration in a shaft´s keyseat.

      The solver runs with a standard mesh:

      However I need accuracy, so I refined the mesh on the keyseat but a problem came up.

      "Number of target sub-surfaces per element > 1000 "

      I defined the general contact as non penetrating and the local contacts between the faces of the key and keyset and cube as non penetrating too.

       

      Has anyone dealed with this? I searched in the forum but I´ve found nothing.
