Hi, I want to know contact force at each slave node or master segment. In /TH/INTER, I can check only the sum of contact force in contact interface. How can I check the contact force at each node? Thanks.
Hello, I am doing snap fit analysis for Bottle Cap Contact. I want to check force required for capping of bottle. I used assembly of bottle neck and Cap meshed with Tetra mesh. I used Type 24 Contact, Mat Law 36 for Material and P14 Solid for property. I run the analysis. But the results are not satisfactory. when the cap is forced to fit into neck, Neck deformation seems very high as compared to practical one. Neck deformation looks like waviness which is not practically possible. Capping force is also very high. Almost 1400 N. I think there is mistake in my model. Please help me. I attached video to observe neck behavior. Capping.rar
Dear All, I want to calculate press in force required to push the bearing outer ring into the housing using pressing dolly. I have defined contact between pressing dolly and outer ring; outer ring and housing. Is that pressing force is contact force between pressing dolly and outer ring ?? Need your opinion for the same. (I’m using Radioss for this analysis) Also, Is it possible to do above analysis at -30 degrees surrounding temperature? Please revert with the above queries.
Hello, I'm using HyperMesh and Abacus 3D Contact Solver in my project. This is a FEA Contact Simulations of two mating terminals, as shown below. Basically, terminal 1 will insert and withdraw during the mating process and terminal 2 was fixed at the right surfaces. I would like to plot the contact force between the two terminals during the insert/withdraw process. However, it is not available in HyperView. Can anyone help?
