one way FSI: large deflection of cantilever beam inside a microfluidic channel
 
2 Attachment(s)
I am facing a negative element volume problem in my simulation of a large deflection cantilever beam inside a microchannel.
I have successfully simulated the large deflection of the cantilever beam alone, without including it inside the microchannel.

This is the error which i have:

+--------------------------------------------------------------------+
| ERROR #002100012 has occurred in subroutine cVolSec. |

The location of the folded mesh is shown in the attached figures.
Help please.

i have loaded the mesh in the last step before the folding to ICEM to check the mesh and i get this error:
Delaunay violation
