Static Structural Tool in ANSYS, General Error
Just a quick question, hopefully someone could shed some light upon what I'm doing wrong here?
I'm using ANSYS Workbench to apply a force to what is effectively a cantilever beam, fixed at one end, with a load applied at the other. To be more specific it is a spring strut of a light aircrafts landing gear, where the load is a calculated force at touchdown of landing, so the load bearing end has a wheel assembly attached that I created using Siemens NX.
I've defined the materials of each section, produced a mesh and applied the load force and fixed support at either end, but when I run the solution I get the following error message:
"An error occurred inside the SOLVER module: general error."
Does anybody have any idea what could be causing this? Appreciate any help you can give. Thank you.

I was having the same problem, but i just worked out what was causing it for me.
I think I am using an education license, which limits the number of nodes you can have in a model. If you exceed it then it gives you this error. I reduced the size of my model and reduced the number of nodes I was using and the problem went away.
The model I am working with at the moment has just under 125000 nodes. A model twice the size didn't run, so id guess the cut off could be between 125000 and 250000 - although I'm not sure.
Try reducing your model size.
