Large Fan Assm. Flow Simulation and FEA Coupling

I am trying to account for the air resistance (fluid pressure) acting on a large fan assembly in my FEA study. There is nothing special about the assembly. Simply four propellers and a hub plate with a hole in the center. I conducted a flow study and got rather accurate results compared to my test data. However, when I import the results from the flow study to a FEA test in Solidworks it won't complete solving... Any suggestions or tips?
