Hi guys, I am trying to do static analysis of refrigerator in which I have used all frictional contacts. And for door of fridge I have used a revolute joint. I kept large deflection ON but still I am getting a 'Solver Pivot error' . Can anybody please help to solve this? It would be really a great help. Regards, Jay

Jay, the solver pivot error tells me that your model might be under-constrained. Please try the suggestions listed in this post to see if it helps?

If it didn't help, can you please post some snapshots of your model, boundary conditions, and contact details that we can get a better idea of what's happening.

P.S: If this is a structural mechanics question, please post in the correct category in the future to get faster help.
