I have to model an impact on a bundle of tubes. Therefore it is necessary to define contact between all neighoring tubes and selfcontact inside each tube.
Is there any function available in Sol 701 which is similar to the General Contact option of Abaqus?
Using the automatic funciton is quite a lot of work, becaus it is also necessary to consider that each tube needs to be considered as source and target.
Thanks for your comments.
Solved! Go to Solution.
In the animated SOL701 model below only TWO REGIONS exist:
And only TWO CONNECTOR exist:
Then at the beginning it seems very complex, but sometimes defining contact is very simply and straightforward, give it a try!.
Here you have more examples of NX NASTRAN Advanced Nonlinear Module:
Thank you for your answer and for the link. I guess I will also try some of this examples to get more experienced with NX Advanced Nonlinear.
