How can I display the contact stresses on a contact solid?


The result values described in RFEM as "Contact Stresses" are by definition reserved for surfaces with surface supports (see RFEM Manual).

Instead, contact solids can be evaluated like standard solid elements. According to the definition of the contact solid axis system, it is thus possible to display the stresses in the contact direction as well.

Please note that for the evaluation of contact solid, the option "Remove Contact Solid from Display" must be deactivated in the Display navigator (see Figure 2).
