I don't know the details of your setup, so forgive me if some of my remarks do not apply.
- From looking at the undeformed model, I anticipate some nonlinearities in your model (stress-stiffening, large displacement, more?). You should be running a nonlinear study and not a static study
- Another reason for using a nonlinear study is that you want the applied normal pressure to update with the deflection of the model. This is an option in available nonlinear studies only.
- Whenever you want to assess whether deformed components interfere or not, you should look at the deformed model at true scale. Is it the case?
- Did you make sure to define no Penetration contact between the faces you think may get in contact?
