Which surfaces should be included in contact pairs? Which interface method shall be used?

      I am trying to model the insertion force required to push a barbed connector (nylon 66 material) in a holed bracket (Stainless Steel material). I have tried several combinations of contact-target pairs in the frictional contact I used. Can someone please guide me what should be the correct way to model this contact and where am I going wrong?

      I suggest you use Explicit Dynamics to solve this problem. The benefit is the contacts are automatically created for you.
      I also recommend using smaller elements.
