Compliance factor (CFACTOR1) - acceptable value for better convergence

Pioneer

Hello,

 

Reference: https://community.plm.automation.siemens.com/t5/3D-Simulation-Femap-Forum/sol-601-contact-definition...

 

I came across this post on compliance factor yesterday. If I use 0.001 instead of 0 it helps to converge some otherwise divergent frictionless contacts. Does anyone know how high can I go with this value without adveresly affecting the simulation results?

 

Best regards,

Su
