Measuring force reaction at a certain face

      Hi everyone,

      I am trying to get the force rxn at a certain face (Face 2 in the following picture). I have a simple structure, a cubic PDMS joint (that between points 2 and 3) is placed between two Silicon beams. Whenever I try to choose face 2, it gives an error (a question mark next to 'Force Reaction' [see in picture]).

      Hi

      If it is a contact then you want to go to analysis settings and activate (set to yes) most output quantities (nodal forces, contact and general misc,...).

      Thank you
