      Hi.

      Could you please share what does negative contact pressure in the 'Contact Tool > Pressure' mean ? I am simulating interference fit problem for a bearing and shaft, and getting negative values of conatct pressure on the shaft. Does it mean compressive pressure or pressure direction to be radially inwards? 

      Thanks!
