I would like to model objects coming into contact then not being able to come apart, but slide relatively. Does a 'no separation' definition achieve this or does it have to be initially in contact?

You might use the COMBIN40 element which has a Gap feature. A "lockup" feature may be selected with KEYOPT(1). This feature removes the gap opening capability once the gap has closed.
