While running a transient run, I am getting the following error. Please suggest me the solution. I have tried the run by increasing memory allocation factor as 1.2, 1.4, 1.8, 2.0, 4.0, 9.0.
I've even increased the real memory as 2x in advanced options. But I am getting the same error as:

+--------------------------------------------------------------------+
| *** INSUFFICIENT MEMORY ALLOCATED *** |

When you cannot recover from this error with 2x stacks then it tells you something is fundamentally wrong with your simulation setup.

Generally this is caused by something which is much more complex than normal - it could be a GGI, material properties, lots of CEL or something. What is unusually complex in your model?

sometimes (happened to me) it helps if you set up instead of 2x for example just 1,2x and it works...

Thanks a lot for your reply.
I've run the same kind of simulation with lesser number of nodes. And it was a success.
I've checked my ANSYS Pre file by comparing both the files. I could not find any difference. Even I've remeshed the geometry atleast 10-12 times but I'm unable to solve the problem. My simulation involves multi-phase.
