    helical conical spring simulation, equilibrium not achieved

    Feng-Yueh Chan

      Hello everyone,


      I'm trying to simulate a helical conical spring  to acquire spring k-value.


      Beside the spring itself, I modeled a circular disk on each side of the spring to support and to apply force.


      I use large displacement and soft spring to solve it.


      Everytime I execute, the dialogue pop out, tell me that equilibrium not achieved.


      I checked previous post and checked my contact condition, can't figure out what's going on.


      The spring itself will contact after force applying onto, so I set no penetration between sweep body; and both the disks on each side are set BONDED to the spring.


      Is there anything I miss-operated or I forgot?


      Please check the attachment and give me some advices.
