Error message involving pressure load


New member
I am trying to run an assembly that has many welded parts.
Basically its an air-tight box with support inside and I am testing to
find the stress with an internal 10 psi pressure load. I keep
getting the error message:

"...loads will be deleted because:

on a face or edge that was split,

on a face or edge that was merged,

on a face that was collapsed to an edge during compression,

pressure load on multiple surfaces having inconsistent normals..."

has anyone seen this before and how should I troubleshoot??

Can you send me your assembly or simplified one such that I can help you.

Its difficult to say anything about the error message without looking at it.
