no penetration contact not taken into account

Hello visitors,


There is an assembly composed of: a structure (1, see image) which is supported by four fixed parts (2). Contacts structure/support are

No Penetration Contact.


My goal is to observe the flextion of the structure (1).

The problem is that one of four contacts is not taken into account (there is a lack o support, a side of the structure is not supported => the stress is very low on this support) consequently there is an anormally high stress and torque on the opposite support (which is not normal).

Do you know:

1 why this contact fails?

2 and how to correct this failing contact?


thank you in advance for your ideas


P.S. I use Slidworks 2013
