Contacts are widely used to simulate the complex interactions of parts and assemblies under field conditions. Contact, a changing-status nonlinearity, can lead to highly nonlinear behavior and requires significant computational resources to solve. Contact parameters play an important role in achieving high simulation accuracy and smooth convergence behavior. It is important that the analyst understands the physics of the problem and invests the time to set up the model to run as efficiently as possible.
In this webinar, you will learn about the best practices and highlights of recent enhancements related to the rich library of Ansys connection technology:
Contact options to achieve simulation accuracy and efficiency
