Hello, I appreciate your help earlier. I have another query. Is it problematic to have frictional contact? I've come across guides online indicating that frictional contact results in a non-proportional load for fatigue tool, yet I haven't found any practical examples illustrating how to address this scenario. I find it quite perplexing that after days of searching, there's a lack of information on simulating fatigue in bolts. Additionally, the Ncode tool in my Ansys appears to be malfunctioning; while I can set up the analysis, I'm unable to execute it. Any insights or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Is it possible to pay for an hour or two of consultation from someone experienced in the field? I need assistance in making the correct assumptions, as this project is crucial for me.
