    modeling glue stiffness with cosmos

    Loic Ancian
      I m trying to take into account a very thin layer of glue in my model. (static analysis)
      The thing is that the thickness is 0.2 micrometer and I only know its young's modulus.
      I know there is the possibilitry to specify a spring in cosmos between two faces but I need a distributed stifness in N/m/m^2 ??!!

      A workaround would be to mesh the glue but then my model becomes huge.

      Any idea?
