No, COSMOS 2004 doesn't support multi-bodies (I get that message when I don't pay attention to a join command or something like that). However, it does appear to act like 2 bodies. I e-mailed you the file. Thanks!

Hi Peter, I don't think CW2004 supported multi-body parts which makes your problem even more confusing. Can you send me the model and let me take a look at it? I won't be able to try it in v2004 but I might be able to see something.
I created a single part (with a single body) from an assembly that I joined all the parts together. My purpose was to create a weldment that didn't require weld beads, etc, for simple analysis. However, one component of the assembly separated when I ran my simulation. The component was created as an extrude up-to-surface. I thought that since it was contacting another surface, it would be considered united to that surface. Where am I going wrong?
BTW, I checked "Force Surface Contact" when I joined the parts.
