How can I quickly create a contact volume between two contact surfaces in RFEM?


The fastest way to create a contact volume between two flat surfaces is to use the Create Solid with Contact feature. To do this, select both contact surfaces and select the corresponding function in the context menu (see Figure 1). The program then automatically generates a contact volume including all boundary surfaces and openings in the solid. For this only the contact properties in the settings of the contact volume have to be defined (see picture 2).
