tied interface and AMS

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am trying to run a model with tied interface (Type 2) and AMS. The interface is defined with contact surface as master and nodes on the slave side. 

During starter the following warning appears:

WARNING ID :          852
** WARNING SLAVE NODE OF AN INTERFACE TYPE2 & AMS

and during computation: 

WARNING INTERFACE          2
 NODE     xxx DE-ACTIVATED FROM INTERFACE

 

Can this deactivation of slave nodes be avoided when using AMS and type 2 interface? The same model was run successfully using DT/NODA/CST.

Actually, the deactivation of nodes was due to another interface (type 7) and it was solved by setting the Irem_gap to 1. 

 

I would still like to know the reason of WARNING ID : 852

Hi Ivan,

In AMS for RADIOSS, a node cannot be slave to a Type 2 interface and a Type 7 interface at the same time. A node can therefore be slave, either of type 2 or of type 7. Please correct your modeling in order to solve this observed behavior.

Hi George,

Thanks for the tip. The manual also suggests this contact deactivation can be avoided by using Spotflag=25 or 26 (TYPE2 penalty formulation).

Both methods avoid WARNING ID :  852 ** WARNING SLAVE NODE OF AN INTERFACE TYPE2 & AMS; however some slave nodes of type 7 are still de-activated during simulation, eventhough they are not referenced in type 2. So this de-activation is probably caused by type 7 interface definition (ouput file):

Hi Ivan,

The possible workaround is setting /INTER/TYPE2 Spotflag to 25 (to switch from kinematic to penalty based tied interface formulation) and it will be affected only to the nodes referenced to TYPE2 interface.

The /DT/AMS will increase the time step of small elements.  The warning message  NODE xxx DE-ACTIVATED FROM INTERFACE you are getting is due to the kinematic time step of the interface. It is because that the node is penetrating too far into the gap. You can try increasing the Gapmin in your TYPE7 interface which will allow the contact to work sooner and prevent node from penetrating so far.  Or you could try making the interface stiffer, Istf=3 which uses the maximum stiffness of the slave and master.

Increasing the min_gap worked, but during computation the energy error suddenly drops to -99.9% and unrealistic stresses propagate through the structure, when compared to the run with traditional mass scaling (at 1/10 the timestep of AMS).

Hi Ivan,

Please ensure that fully integrated elements are used for the run. Also check the hourglass energy in the model.

Can you please share the engine out file?.

Hello,

 

I have sent the requested files to dropbox. 

Some parts were modeled with under-integrated elements but hourglass energy is constant throughout.

I also ran the fully integrated model and the same issue occurs.
