Ansys Learning Forum Maintenance

NOTICE: We will be performing backend maintenance of our Learning Forum from April 5 to April 12, 2021. The result will be a new infrastructure but with little impact to user experience and design. Currently the forum is accessible in read-only mode as we complete our final migration. Thank you for your patience. For urgent issues please visit HERE.

Bond Strength — Ansys Learning Forum

Bond Strength

Is it possible to incorporate a bond strength of 60 kPa between a contact and target body in a static structural project? and if so, how?

    Read Chapter 13 of the Contact Technology Guide: Contact Debonding. Open the ANSYS Help then paste the following text into the Address Bar.

    The debonding capability refers specifically to separation of bonded contact. It can be used to simulate interface delamination where the interface is modeled using bonded contact with the augmented Lagrangian method or the pure penalty method. A cohesive zone material must be used to define the traction separation behavior of the interface.

    The cohesive zone material will have 60 kPa as one of the material constants.
