Hi, I've a problem with my 3PB model of a sandwich structure (honeycomb core). Contact between sandwich structure and supports isn't realistic. I set contact in "SLIDE" but the result is wrong. So I obtained a displacement of 177 mm with a force of about 15000N, not real. I can't also view the results of CFAILURE, but I've set it in output requests. Can you take a look to my model? Thanks in advance. Hearing from you. Regards. 3PB_1.hm
I am carrying out a linear static loading of helical spring, which is interfaced between two plates and have defined slide contact between the spring and the plates. Upon applying the load to the top plate i obtained the spcf forces on the bottom plate nodes. However, I am obtaining unexpectedly high loads at the contacts (100 times higher than the loading force~1000). Am i doing something wrong in setting up the contacts? I am attaching pictures of result, setup and contact surfaces for clarity
