Hi everybody, I was running a test with optistruct using two simple cubes. They are both fixed at opposite ends. Their faces are separated by 0.1 mm and can, if pushed, become engaged in a contact (type SLIDE). Type of analysis: nonlinear quasistatic. Issue: Even if I fixed both cubes at their bases and there is no applied force and no contact is engaged (shcdist=0.001 and the solver warns me that no contact elements have been defined during the analysis), the cubes translate of 2 mm as if they are moving like rigid bodies. I have already tried to constrain some more nodes, to no avail. Any explanation for this thing by anyone? Thank you in advance. Find attached my .fem file to check SHRCTOL001.fem
Hi. I have to model the contact between that shaft (see the picture) and the housing. After creating the interface, I have choosen "SLIDE" and I have run a non-linear quasi-static analysis. Is the choice SLIDE correct? Thank you.
Hello, I want to simulate the following mechanism I need the orange pin to slide trhough the green slot when the green slot moves due to other machanism movement. This is the configuration of contact that I used: Nodes on the all arround the slot are the slave and all of the pin elements (membrane of a 3D) is the master. And the results are these: what do you suggest i can do? What is wrong with my contact card, or what other approach do you suggest? thank you for your itme.
