Hello Khemka,

Consider that two bodies come into bonded contact. I want to include body 1 in my analysis, but due to computer memory limitations I do not want to include body 2. I am trying to eliminate body 2 from the analysis and replace it with an Elastic Support. Lets say that body 2 behaves as linear elastic, isotropic, homogeneous material with material constants (E=100GPa, v=0.3). Can you please tell me how can you determine the value of the Foundation Stiffness with respect to (E=100Gpa, v=0.3);
