Contact in NX8

Hello,

 

I am student and have a propably short question (using NX8).

I want to create a simulation of a falling sphere on a thin plate. I use SOL 601, 129, but the "results"-button disappears after solving.

I tried to create a Surface-to-Surface-Contact, the plate as the bottom-region and the sphere as the top-region. But no results after solving...

I hope you can help me. Thank you very much!

Best regards from Germany

Hi Robin,

 

Here is the modified files. A lot of parameters changed.

The main reason why you are not getting your result is because you did not use Strategy Parameter at all. ATS (automatic time stepping) setting is required whenever Sol601 is used.

Hello Tuw,

 

thank you very much for your reply.

I tried to rebuild it and tried to figure out, what your changes have been. I thought I found all changed paramters, but my solution stops exactly before contact. Do you have a final advice?

 

Thank you very much!

Many regards,
Robin
