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
