How to find the interaction load on each contact surfaces.

      I'm trying to simulate the explicit dynamics. Bar 1 strikes on the Bar 2, and Bar 2 hit on the surface of plate. I'm now facing the trouble trying to determine the interaction loads on two contact surface locations. Between Bar 1 and 2, & Bar 2 and plate surface. And I really have no idea how it works. I tried the contact force, but it would not let me select the face, but a entire body.

      You can insert two body Results Trackers of Contact Force under Solution Information and scope them to the Bar 1 and the Plate. This will show the time history of contact force between the Bar 1 & the Bar 2 as well as the Bar 2 and the plate. Body Interactions are used so results trackers of contact force must scope to a body or bodies.n
