When I simulating the liner as retaining wall during excavating process, the system can not get equillibrium.
In 2D, the liner is a beam-type element, and share some properties with beam. So I create the liner with by-line command, but in my model, the links between the liner and zones are seems failed to create.

the stress field in zones is unchanged.
Would anyone help me to check it?
