Hi Farouk,

Could you be more specific about the OptiStruct contacts as there are many contact formulations which OptiStruct supports.

Thank you


Hi Prasannak, 


Thank you for your answer :) 


Yeah I now exponential, cubic laws .... The idea is for each NSET (Contact interface) we compute our own law ... 


For example, we assume that we want to perform contact simulation between 2 bodies (see the model below). The idea is to divide slave surface into 6 sub-surfaces and for each sub-surface we want to use a specific contact law (house development). 


Best regards,
