Defining node to node contact with APDL snippet in Workbench
Good day. I'm trying to learn how to add node to node contact using APDL command snippet in workbench.
Below are some screenshots from my test model. I've modeled two fixed cantilevers. One is pressed with force downwords. I would like to add node to node contact which will transfer only compressive force and allow for sliding.
I made some trys in classic apdl and try to repeat it in command snippet. But in nither enviroment i didn't achieve result that I've expect.
As you can see on below plots there are lines defining the contact. But there is no reaction of the lower cantilever. It looks that there is some problem with KEOPTS..
I've got two question
1) What setup to use in KEYOPT of CONTA178 to achive node to node contact described above ?
2) Is there any node to node contact eqivalent inside Workbench ?
Thank you in advance !
