Automatic Contact Detection For Solid And Shell/Solid Models

ANSYS Workbench provides automated contact detection for assemblies. Using algorithms based on surface proximity, ANSYS Workbench will create possible contact pairs. This detection works for solid-to-solid detection as well as for mixed shell/solid models. Face to face, face to edge and edge to edge contact can be detected. Contact pairs can be renamed based on the underlying bodies. This demo shows the user can finy setup the contact properties (bonded, frictional, rough, etc.) as well as numerous contact options.
