Contact geometry correction

    • destroy

      Dear all,

      I am trying to model 3D fluid-structure interaction of two flaps undergoing large deformation due to flowing water.

      The flaps are close to eachother. I want to block their deformation, telling ANSYS Mechanical to not deform the body if the distance between the bodies is lower than 0.3 mm.

      To do that, I set the frictionless contact, however, it does not help - you can see the minimum distance about 0.2 mm which is lower than 0.3 mm:



      Additionally, I checked the contact informations:


      Could you please tell me why it does not work? Or - what to change? Maybe change the "contact geometry correction" or "target geometry corection"  from None to Smoothing? But, I cannot find in manual what smoothing here means.


      Kind regards
