Hello, I am trying to do a Modal Analysis of a 500k element model. In the begining the model had some frictionless contact that had to be changed by No-Separation contacts. The model also has fixed supports and compression only supports. I tried to solve the model but it was impossible, so I decided to change the compression only supports for displacement constraints, setting X,Y free and Z=0, but I know they aren´t equal. Does it exist some way to model a compression-only support with displacement constraints, or is it possible to solve the model using compression only support?
Thank you in advance,

The contact surface will not penetrate across the rigid target, but is free to separate. It should be in a closed and sliding status. For the modal, it should be reduced to its linear equivalent, which would be no-separation. I think your manually defined displacement constraints do same thing, assuming Z is normal to the compression only surface.
