I have modeled three similar parts in contact. I assume that the parts are perfectly glued to each other. Therefore, in that case, I merged duplicated nodes in their interface to provide a tied contact condition. However, after delamination, the plies cannot see each other and pass through each other. I wonder if I can define an extra proper contact between the plies to prevent such an unrealistic behavior. I wonder whether the Automatic-Surface-to-Surface contact algorithm is a proper one.
I would appreciate it if you could give me some advice.
Thanks in advance.

November 14, 2023 at 2:35 amJim DayAnsys EmployeeYou've set SURFATYP to 3 so that means SURFA is interpreted as a part ID. To put multiple parts on the slave side, you must set SURFATYP to 2 and then you can set SURFA to a part set ID. A part set is defined using *SET_PART.
