I work on a subject where I have to study the pressure on a surface (as shown on the picture) in a static structural analysisMay 19, 2021 at 8:26 am1shanAnsys Employee1) Yes that's the normal stress on the surface.
2) Could you define a single contact with 13 faces scoped to contact and the opposite face as target, and see if it works. Also, what happens when you set the definition of those 2 contacts to symmetric. The pressure should be visible for both sides unless the contact is not detected.
May 19, 2021 at 12:42 pmdimitri.hamelinSubscriberthank you for your answer, it worked creating only one contact, I just had to refresh the contact tool results :)
Now I would like to integrate this pressure on this 13 surfaces, is it possible in the results in static structural ? And how to do it please ?
(I already tried to search in the ANSYS User Guide without success)
Best regards Dimitri

Thank you so much :)
Have a nice day !
