Hey everyone,

I'm attempting to run a coupled fluid-structure analysis with ANSYS Workbench 17.2. I have licenses individually for Fluent and Mechanical, but even though the Fluent and Transient Structural runs work fine on their own, when coupled using the process described here (Part 1:

; Part 2:
they error out as shown:

Attached is an image of the runtime errors we get during the co-simulation process. 

It seems that there's an additional coupled-simulation license required for this type of co-simulation? If so, does anyone know how we can obtain this license?

Thanks a lot

Can you try launching User License Preferences v172 (make sure all ANSYS GUI's are closed) -> then select 'Use a separate license for each application' .

Do you still get the same error ?

Thanks,

Win
