No, I haven't. I will go with edge (red) and area (green) contact and I think that will do it. Thanks a lot. Will let you know soon.

anticipating contact will be face to face due to deformation instead of edge to face, Go for face to face contact instead.

I can't add Edge and Face contact at a time ? I anticipated that the edge will rub first and then the area might come in contact (not sure though, will have to check). I have around "8 faces and 2 Edges" on contact and "8 face" contacts on target. I am not able to select face and edge simultaneously. Thanks.

Hi, I tried the method you suggested. It restricted deflection beyond the metal surface but unfortunately it started with that area in contact. I need the tongue to deflect during insertion but the tongue shouldn't cross boundaries. My apologies, I should have mentioned this at the start of this discussion. I found following result.
The yellow (bow shape) marked is undesirable, Green and Red faces were taken to be in contact. I need to take edge contact for green and face contact for red but it seems it will give similar result. Should I add another manual contact along with previous ones ?
Thanks. Any suggestion is most welcome.

Yes Sorry, my bad. It's behaving at it should the only amendment was to provide edge contact to face contact. Thanks for your solution. You're awesome. Much obliged.
