Defining Output for Contact force between two particular components

Recommended Posts

I've been recently working on a Knee joint model . I need to find the contact force vector between two particular components.  I have been getting a lot of errors and unable to run the model. 

All the contact pairs and properly defined and I am able to generate all typical outputs except for contact output. please help me out. The output blocks defined so far are node and element outputs for all 8 components defined. 


Thanks in advance!

Hello George,


Thanks for the responses,  could you enlighten me with steps to correctly define the output block for contact forces in this case. I have tried but I feel that I am getting it wrong. I need to find the contact force vector between the components. I have defined a Tie contact here. 

Thanks in advance. 

Awaiting the response.
