Defining Output for Contact force between two particular components

Recommended Posts

I've been recently working on a Knee joint model . I need to find the contact force vector between two particular components.  I have been getting a lot of errors and unable to run the model. 

All the contact pairs and properly defined and I am able to generate all typical outputs except for contact output. please help me out. The output blocks defined so far are node and element outputs for all 8 components defined. 

 

Thanks in advance!

Hi Bharath,

Normally for contact forces an output block for contacts is created. As a workaround can you try the same approach in Abaqus?.

Hello George,

 

Thanks for the responses,  could you enlighten me with steps to correctly define the output block for contact forces in this case. I have tried but I feel that I am getting it wrong. I need to find the contact force vector between the components. I have defined a Tie contact here. 

Thanks in advance. 

Awaiting the response.

Hi Bharath,

Please try this:

You can output this through output block. Check the output option and select the contact output option.
