'3_rings' simulation project by slon


I created a new simulation project called '3_rings':

Testing 3 rings according EN

Hi, that is an interesting project. I have a few recommendations.

While defining contacts, you can limit yourself with selecting the faces that will be in contact instead of whole volumes/bodies.

Also, take care in assigning the Master and Slave entities in a contact. The faces which have a smaller area or a more refined mesh is favoured for being the Slave (refer:



I think it would be better to reduce the number of solids to simplify the model(i.e. you could merge the numerous solids in the rings to form one solid). Once the calculations for this simplified model provides good results, you may indulge in including further details.


Thanks a lot for giving the user some good advices @rrajakrishnan! :+1: Let us know if you have any issues with your project @slon!

Cheers and happy SimScaling!
