How to separate nodes on contact sufaces

Recommended Posts

3D model with solid elements, there are two surfaces in contact and friction interaction were set in Hypermesh.

When .inp file was imported to ABAQUS and check data, there is a warning "the slave assembly has 1200 nodes in common with master surface".

Should I separate the nodes on the interface and how to do it?

Hi lanwujiu,


I think you have chosen same nodes while defining contacts. Please go through the below video and create contacts as shown.

Thank you



Thank you for your instruction video.

I also managed to do this by detaching the connected elements and generated new nodes.
