Problems with circular shapes in FSI simulations

Hello,

I am working on a impact model of the human head. Skull, Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and the human brain.
First I made a very simple model without the brain. Just a simple square filled with the CSF. There is a force applied (starts at 3e-5 seconds ends at 9e-5 seconds ) at the front of the square which represents the impact.
BUT when I model the brain in this square (see it as a circle in a square, around the square is the CSF) the simulation stops always at the timestep when the force will come up.

I tried all different kind of meshes and it didn't help. Maybe the problem is the density of the brain and the fluid, because they are almost simular??

end time = 3e-3
time step = 3e-5

Hope someone can help me.

Could it be that the CSF domain gets squeezed so thin the mesh goes to zero thickness (or inverts)? You should output the mesh at several time steps to get a feel for how the mesh is moving.

You may also be able to do this using the immersed grid feature in V12.

I am modeling head with 3 parts: skull, CSF and Brain
The two-way FSI example in ANSYS tutorial only mentions
1 solid parts and one Fluid part.
When I define two interface between solid and fluid
1 for Skull-CSF and one for CSF- Brain
I get error that the solver can not get the total mesh displacement for
CSF-Brain interface.
Do you have any idea what the problem can be?
Thanks
