5-Minute Abaqus Debug - Numerical Singularities and Rigid Body Motion - Fidelis Features

Here's the first in our Fidelis 5-Mintute Fix series, where we aim to provide punchy answers to some of the common (and not so common) questions we get asked as Abaqus support engineers

In this installment, we go through the warnings and errors that you'll see in the message file (.msg file) when you have rigid body motion in your model. This will always be a result of non or under-constrained components and can sometimes be tricky and annoying to diagnose if you don't know what to look for.

Hopefully these videos will help some of you out and in the end we're all better analysts for them! Don't forget to LIKE and SUBSCRIBE if you'd like to see more simulation related content!
