How to define a Contact analysis with Hyperelastic materials
I am simulating a scenario where 2 parts are touuching and one is made of a hyperelastic material, hence i can only run it contact.
- When I run it with 2 Output time steps (0-1), the solution converges (Single Pass) and I get some results.
- When i take the same run, and increase the output to 5 time steps, the solution always terminates because it fails to converge at a load factor less than 1.
Can someone pleasae help? How can the solution converge in the first case, but not in the second? Any guidance is appreciated. (If it helps, I also added a lot of mesh refinement points in he contact region and raan the 2nd analysis again and it still failed.)
