Hello John, I have been thinking about what you advised that Wraping the contact around the edges. Do you indicate that I should create one sinlge frictional contact for both parts at the bolt hole. i.e. around the edges. Is the "combined" detection method the new function in ansys 2023? I am using 2022 R1 right now. 

Really appreciate your could give some guidance at your convenience.

Kind regards,
