Impact plan

I work on SEM with no linear materials and I have a rubber structure which is submerged under water and blown up with water. The structure is fixed to the floor.

I would like to create a impact plan (the floor) where the structure crushs when it is deflated.

But when I start the analyse, it doesn't work...

My model works when I delete the impact plan..


Is anybody have this problem and (or) have a solution...?

The impact plane is mainly designed for drop test simulation.  All the nodes of the model should be located at the same of side the impact plane.  If your model must have a zero gap with the floor, you can set the contact tolerance for impact plane as zero.
