Hello,

 

Right now, I am trying to perform a drop test simulating a drop impact at 10 m/s for this structure. However, I keep on meshing and adding appropriate materials and setup values but the simulation keeps on overloading and never finishes. As a result, I need to close the SolidWorks application and return back to where I had started. The material I intend to use is 6061 Aluminum Alloy. An image of the scenario has been provided.
