Question

Does the nonlinearity that can be activated for a surface support in the z‑direction refer to the entire supported surface, or only to the areas that correspond to the nonlinearity?

Answer

The nonlinearity of surface supports, that is, "Failure if positive/negative contact stress in z," see Figure 01, only refers to the relevant area.

In the remaining area, the surface support acts accordingly, see Figure 02.
