I have a model with two bodies connected by bolts. Contacts are represented by bonded contact in bolt locations and frictional contact in other contact areas. Bolt pretension is applied along with acceleration loads in the model and this model got converged.
Now the same model with a cylindrical body in place of bolt, without pretension I am trying to analyse, but its not converging. Force and moment values are converging, but displacement is not converging.
Please provide some suggestions on this,
