Problem during FEA analysis

Recommended Posts

Hi Ivan,

thanks for your answer but the real problem is that there is a little gap between clip and body in resting position. Then, applying the load, the body crosses the clip without contact.

It has been a while since I last used the Inspire, so I am not up to date on its functionality.


There was Clearance Parameter for Contacts introduced in 2018.1 version, which allows you to define when a contact is considered in cases where there is a slight separation between parts in contact.

 Also check contact validity.


If the initial gap is too big it is a contact non-linearity, but the Inspire is based on linear solver, so it might not be suitable for such problems.
