MBDyn Users,

When running certain simulations, I receive the following error:
Simulation failed because no pivot element could be found for column 
3639 (TotalJoint(20): dof(3) Fz) after 26 iterations during step 139; 
An error occurred during the execution of MBDyn; aborting...

/What is the best solution to fixing this problem.  Refine the 
time-step?  Or adjust some other solver parameter?
