I'm modelling a half RC beam, as shown.
This is the material command for concrete:
This is the material command for reinforcement:
1. For concrete, Patch conforming method, tetrahedrons, element midside nodes dropped.
2. For reinforcements, Body sizing, 1mm, soft behaviour.
Symmetry: Symmetric region applied at the face of the middle of the beam.
1. Solver controls
Solver type, weak springs- program controlled, large deflection & intertia relief- off.
2. Non-linear controls
Force & displacement convergence- on. The rest under non-linear controls are program controlled.
Displacement applied on the edge of "add frozen" concrete body. Free only at x-direction, constant at y & z direction.
*** ERROR *** CP = 18.422 TIME= 21:23:01
Solution not converged at time 1 (load step 1 substep 1).
*** WARNING *** CP = 18.422 TIME= 21:23:01
The unconverged solution (identified as time 1 substep 999999) is
output for analysis debug purposes. Results should not be used for
any other purpose.

RESTART BY RE-RUNNING THE ANALYSIS
Above are the details of the model settings, which doesn't yield proper result. Please guide me through my problems. I'm not sure how to rectify the error.
Below are the deformation response under this setting:
