Contact condition scoped to a specific set of faces

      Is it possible in Workbench LS-Dyna to create a contact that is scoped to a specific face or set of faces in the model? The Body Interaction object seems to only allow contacts to be scoped to entire bodies.

      Yes, you can create contacts for specific faces which are in contact by defining contact and target side. You can also use body interaction for some particular bodies instead of scoping it to all bodies. You can add additional body interaction objects as required.
      Body Interactions can exist with Contact Regions. But, do not use both at the same location. Otherwise, contact forces will split, contact stiffness will be doubled.
      Thanks Amaniyar
