RFEM 6

What is the fastest way to create a contact between two surfaces?

Answer

In RFEM 5, a contact solid was required to create a contact between two surfaces. In RFEM 6, this can be done using a surface contact:

1) Define a surface contact type: Either in the Data navigator under "Types for special objects" or directly within the surface contact under "Special objects" → "Surface contact," see Image 01.


2) Assign the corresponding surfaces and the surface contact type to the surface contact, see Image 02.
