In simulation 2009 when creating a surface to mesh a solid part with shell elements, Is it have to be a mid-plane surface or can I use one of the faces of the solid part to create this surface?
From Simulation 2009 and forward, the true thickness of the shell that you input in its definition is considered in determining contact, just as it was with COSMOSM
What does it mean "considered in determining contact?
And, is it wrong to make the shell surface just on the solid body surface (i.e. offset the solid body surface by 0 mm distance)?
