Step 7: Solve!
Before we start the solution, we should check our model for errors. Enter
check in the Input window and press Enter.
All warnings and errors found will be displayed in the Output Window. There are no errors but you will see the warnings regarding element shapes that we encountered before. So we're finally ready to kick back and let ANSYS do some of the work: assembling the local and global stiffness matrices and inverting the global system to determine the displacements at the nodes.

Click OK in Solve Current Load Step menu.
ANSYS should cheerfully report "Solution is done!"
Verify that ANSYS has created a file called crank.rst in your working directory. This file contains the results of the (previous) solve.
