I placed two solids on top of each other. There are nodes / lines / surfaces which are used by both solids. Is it possibility to generate a failure criterion?


If the contact between two superimposed plates or solids is to be simulated, it is usually necessary to model the contact solid between the two plates/solids with a thickness from center axis to center axis of both contact surfaces. The material of the contact solid should be the same as of the two surfaces to be connected. If the materials of the surfaces are different, we recommend to use the material with the poorer properties for the contact solid. Under the following link, you can find some technical articles about contact solids on our website: Technical Articles | Contact Solids You can also watch the modeling of a contact solid in a short example video under the following link: Example Video - Contact Solids (DE)
