if you can upload cad data , ı can say certain things.
I guess the pipe's mesh incompatible with stell box.
You should define contact set bonded with steel box and pipe.
Even if you do it , Solidworks sometimes could not create contact set.
İf its is possible define steel box as shell. Then use split line for proper mesh.
you can see how mesh should be on the picture.
Thanks allot for the help! I defined the steel box ass shell, and that helped. You can see the here:
But before I run the simulation I tried to find out more about the split line you mentioned, but I didn`t
found out how it work. So the mesh pattern isn`t like the one on your picture.
But anyway, I tried to run the simulation, and it worked. Now I will try to add some pressure on the
steel box in different directions, and I will also try a fatigue simulation. Hopefully that will go great,
thanks for your help!
with that mesh you can not transfer load from pipe to that plate.
The mesh file must be like the foto of previous message.
You should use split line for knitting nodes.
