Look at where the mesh has folded and either remesh to stop the folding of use the mesh stiffness control to adjust the smoothing to stop the folding.

hello, i applied a lot of changes in mesh setting but the error messages displays yet.when i decrease inlet pressure the simulation runs normally because the deformation in solid is very small.if ansys solves only FSI problems with small solid deformations or i should set a suitable mesh setting to see large defornations? thanks, s.ghassemi
