Hello Mr. Peter,

I am running a Static Linear analysis in Ansys 17.2 (Academic Research). The model was created using Materialise software with Tet4 elements and mesh size of 2mm. I want to apply pressure at one end of the bone and check how much pressure is received by the disc. Material properties are mentioned in the wbpz file. The initial contact tool showed no gap in the model. Whereas, after adding a manual contact point between 2 bones, it showed a gap. Actually, it is not supposed to be in contact but may happen while applying moment (rotation).

I haven't turned on Large Deflection and no sub steps.

*Note: I am a medical student running simulations for my research. Hence I request you to give me your feedback or suggestions in simple terms so that I can understand!!
