edge_to_surface contact

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

who have had problem like me and have solved it?

i'm trying to do edge_to_surface contact in optistruct.

i can't add model. 

if i have large model with ribs panel will impact to them.

could you give me any tricks to win it?

thanks a lot.

thanks, but i've yet tryed n2s, it's didn't help.

i tryed to create pairs ribs tube; and tube to ribs S-M and M-S, but it hasn't worked. i have been solving it issue for 3 weeks!

it issue have yet solved in NONLINEAR geometry implicit solver in optistruct (it uses radioss ), but i have got a task to convert it in quasi-static nonlinear static.

small ribs have distorted while plate has deformed.

have you got any idea, guys?

hello @Prakash Pagadala!

of course, i have used large displacement analysis. it's my first goal to use nlstat large displacement analysis instead implicite nonlin-geom analysis.

thanks a lot, i'm going to see your file!

could your give me any advice how to solve large strain in my issue?

i think the problem is large distortion of elements.

you can see, i tryed to use finner mesh, but it didn,t help.

i'm just newbie in altair solvers, i have been using abqs for a long time.

I can see that you are using PCONT with FREEZE on it. Is there a reason for that?

 

Can you change the stiffness on PCONT to AUTO instead of soft and check if that helps?

 

Also, please add CNTSTB card. 

No. i have written about it in privious message. i've done finner mesh, i thought it will has helped. but i was wrong. there mesh has been connected grid to grid. i had released it and did finner mesh. and after it i've done TIE (for altair it's freeze). do you understand my explanation?

thanks, i will try to use your advice and after it i will write about the results.
