Modeling | Structure RFEM

I would like to apply to a surface a protruding reinforcement that should improve the load application and reduce the voltage peaks in the contact area. How can I achieve this with the least possible effort?

Answer

Of course, the easiest way to do this would be to insert an opening for the area that will be used and then close this opening again with a thicker surface (area thickness + thickness reinforcement). However, this would have the contact between the area and the gain (possibly train failure) not taken into account. A closer to reality consideration of z. B. over contact volume, however, would be more time consuming depending on the model in terms of modeling. However, this provides the more accurate result.
