Hey all, First off, I'd like to mention that I am completely unfamiliar with this ANSYS and have been fighting with this program for last 2 and half weeks. Any feedback and help is greatly appreciated! Please refer to the photos attached for referral. My project currently involves analyzing the stresses and deformation occuring on the gripping blocks as well as the piece of pipe. Basically what i'm trying to model is a piece of pipe being clamped by two blocks. The blocks have a profile on them that grip the pipe. The pipe is clamped by equal and opposite forces being applied on each block. Under connections->contacts, I have frictionless contacts between the face of the pipe (target) and the profile of the gripping blocks (contact). As for meshing, I'm currently just doing a very coarse test to see if the analysis works. I'm not sure if this is a good method but to save time I am doing this method for now. I have forces applied onto the blocks as well as frictionless supports for where I cut it in half (due to symmetry) My problem is that when I solve for it, the blocks vanish as if its not there. I hope this is a simple fix and i'm just missing something very simple. I apologize if I missed out on a lot of crucial information. Please feel free to ask anything I may have missed out on that would aid in my situation and I will respond ASAP.
