Using Explicit Dynamics to Model a Car Crashing into a Barrier

Hello there, I am currently trying to model a car crash in ANSYS using Explicit Dynamics, however, I keep getting lots of error messages, such as: “An error occurred when the post processor attempted to load a specific result. Please review all messages.”, “Current result file may not contain requested result data . Please clear the solution and solve again.”, “The result file  cannot be opened.” & “Solver checks failed - see log file for more details.”


I am not very good with ANSYS, so I don’t really know what these error messages mean, or how to fix them. I’m hoping someone here can help me. I don't know how to attach the files I am using to this post, so if you need them, please tell me how to get them to you, haha. Also, if you need any more information about the problem, please don’t hesitate to let me know


Thank you.

Read this discussion.

One of the posts includes an Archive of an Explicit Dynamics model that is working.

Here is the discussion on how to create and use Archives.

Unfortunately, that didn't work. I still received the same error messages as before.

Do you have any other suggestions?

Which model did you try to use?  Please reply with the Permalink to the post that had the attachment.

Did you RMB on the Solution branch and Clear Generated Data and then Solve?

Sorry for the delayed response.

I think this is the link

And, yes, I have repeatedly cleared the generated data before solving, to no avail.

There are two posts that have attached files.



Which one did you try?
