Contact Tool Solution Problem

      Dear All,

      I work on a subject where I have to study the pressure on a surface (as shown on the picture) in a static structural analysis

      1) 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.
      Regards Ishan.

      thank 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

      You could use a force probe and scope it to the contact to get the total force in normal direction. First you will have to change 'nodal forces' and 'contact miscellaneous' included in output controls under analysis settings to 'yes' .
