Contact Enhancements in ANSYS Mechanical and MAPDL 15.0

Contact technology is used extensively throughout ANSYS Mechanical and Mechanical APDL to enforce compatible behavior between different portions within a model. With each release, ANSYS improves the breadth and robustness of our contact technology. In ANSYS 15.0 some existing contact capabilities, such as trim contact and bolt pretension, have been enhanced. In addition, new technology was introduced to improve compression-only supports and to simplify bolt thread modeling. These enhancements enable more robust implementation of contact technology in Mechanical and Mechanical APDL models.

This webinar explains the ANSYS 15.0 contact enhancements. It highlights the advantages and applications of these new technologies.
