Automatic Contact Detection


#1

ALGOR and other FEA software has the ability to automatically detect surfaces that are in contact with each other. This is a huge time-saver on assemblies with parts that contact each other.

Once the program identifies these contact surfaces, it is easy to pick them out from the list and assign different types of contacts as appropriate.
