Ansys: Contact issues

2018-03-21 13:30:02

I've modeled a composite sandwich specimen.This deals with piezoelectricity stuff..which contains 4 substrates(with sequence 45-0-0-45) added resin on both top sides of substrate 1 and substrate 4, next added Kapton on both side and top of that placed a macro fiber composite patch which acts like an actuator. I made all contacts as bonded. Used 2 types of elements, solid186 for the substrate, resin, and Kapton, and solid226 for macro fiber composite (actuator). Need for a static structural analysis.

Error obtained in the solution output ~ element type 2 is not the same shape as solid186. I have tried all my ways, but couldn't ignore it. I hope, I'll get a help from you.

Thanks.
