I am modelling low velocity impact of a ball on a plate. The plate is modelled with 3D brick elements and ball with rigid shell. Now while defining a contact (plate as slave), since I do not have 2D elements, is it normal to define this with the available 3 D elements of the plate? OR Should I create 2D elements on the surface and then assign slave? If this is so then wont these 2D elements affect the results?
