Issues with Abaqus/StarCCM co-simulation

Post by andrew80 »


I am trying to simulate a wind turbine blade, looking at the deformations of the blade, and how that impacts upon the aerodynamic performance with the StarCCM / Abaqus co-simulation engine. I keep getting the following error: "Can't map traction to X number of cells" and therefore keeps the load applied to 0. For some reason, the X corresponds to the number of elements I have on my Abaqus model. The element type is valid for the co-simulation, and I am using shell elements.

I have tried everything I can think of (remeshing, assigning and re-assigning conditions, checking co-simulation settings in the Abaqus input file) and I am at a complete loss with what to do next.

I know my Abaqus input deck is correct by itself as I have ran a modal analysis and have performed a simple stress analysis on the blade like a cantilever beam.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Sarkari job

Sorry, but it seems that this question is an Abaqus error message.
It is not related to GiD at all, then this is not the appropriated forum to be asked.
