How should I model this contact? (Shell to Shell)

      What is the best way to model this contact between this two shells? This is the connection between the Spar Cap and Wing Ribs. This contact does exist. However when I use the contact tool it says there is a big geometric gap.

      The orange color is because there is a gap between edge and face. Although you can use space-claim to extend the faces to close the gap, as long as the contact is closed it shouldn't be a problem.

      Thank you for the confirmation! Great, to know such!
      In fact the general behaviour of the simulation was making sense.

      Best Regards Pedro
