You might need to add another command object under the contact pair in question with the command:


This will create a permanent parameter (cid1) for the contact element type # of interest that you will refer to later for post processing.

Also, it might be necessary to specify saving all General Miscellaneous and Contact Miscellaneous results to the rst file. (See Analysis Settings Details Window =>Output Controls…)

Also, with regards to your question about meaning of EIJKL…

E = average element results

I = ‘I’ node results

J = ’J’ node results

K = ’K’ node results

L = ’L’ node results
