Dear colleagues,

I'm having trouble with my analysis, in the solution information i've got "Element 4048 has excessive distortion" messages.
I'l try changing the mess size, but it's not helping.

I hope you guys can give me help finding solution to this error.
My model is attached.

Thank you.

Thank you so much Aniket,
Luckily I solve it by changing the element order to quadratic, and it solve so the end.
