Sometimes, when you are building your model in ANSYS® Mechanical, you can build the model underconstrained and contacts can be under-defined. These issues can lead to situations of ill-conditioned matrix operations in solver which will produce solver pivot errors. You can manage these errors with Solver Pivot Checking options.
How To Adjust Solver Pivot Checking Options In ANSYS® Mechanical?
As you see in the screenshot above, it is very easy to do. Click on ‘Analysis Settings’ then select an option from the ‘Solver Controls’ section.
- If you select the ‘Program Controlled’ option, the solver will select the required response.
- If you select the ‘Warning’ option, the solver pivot problem will appear as a warning message. And the solution will go on at the solver level.
- If you select the ‘Error’ option, the solution will stop in the case of any solver pivot problems.
- You can completely off the solver pivot checking if you select the ‘Off’ option.
