    Hi,

    I am a beginner to Ansys AQWA and performing a hydrodynamic simulation for floating spar platform but i have recieved an error while solving the simulation setup for pressures and motions result.
    Error description: ILLEGAL CONNECTIVITY. Element 18882 is joined to element 25371 and element 27404.

    I need some help if anyone has experienced this error or know how to resolve this.

    are you talking about element types? if yes then I used tetrahedron elements with a global meshing of relatively smaller size 0.05meters.

    Are all 3 elements noted above, the same element type?
