How to have bonded contacts and initials state at the same time

      Hi,nnI have several parts that they are connected with bonded contacts (I cannot use the sharedtoplogy since it will make so many difficulties for making a good quality mesh). All these parts has initial states (strain or stress). The problem is that when I introduce these initial states, bonded contacts are not recognized by the solver and parts start showing the penetrations. I removed the initial stats and thing are working properly. Is there any specific setting for the contact in this problem that I can change and solve this issue?!nIs there any better way than bonded contact to tie parts in ansys?.Thanksn
