Archards Wear in ANSYS Mechanical

      Hi,


      I'm attempting to simulate wear using the Archard's wear model built into ANSYS. I have activated the wear model through inserting an APDL command into the contact between my two components as shown:


      K=0.000117
      H=480   !hardness, MPa
      m=1   !exponent on contact pressure
      n=0   !exponent on relative pressure velocity
      !


      TB,WEAR,cid,,,ARCD
      TBFIELD,TIME,0
      TBDATA,1,0,H,n,m
      TBFIELD,TIME,2
      TBDATA,1,0,H,n,m
      TBFIELD,TIME,2.01
      TBDATA,1,K,H,n,m
      TBFIELD,TIME,20


      My problem is that if I run the model with and without this command, the deformation plotted stays the same. Does anyone have any ideas as to what the problem could be?


      Thanks.
