    List Contact Force Distribution Across Face?

    John Willett

      Is there any way to dump a list of individual contact-force values (normal or otherwise, or reaction-force values for that matter) at all nodes across a selected face?  I'm running SW Premium (linear static simulation only) 2015 SP4.0.)

       

      I know how to save such a list for stress, displacement, or strain on a selected face (only through an existing plot), or for all node locations on that face (through Show Mesh), but all I can get for contact force is the resultant vector.  I presume SW must calculate values at all nodes behind the scenes to get this resultant... -- John Willett
