Location of the resultant of contact force

Question asked by Alessandro Tornincasa on Jun 27, 2012

Hi, I'm making some tests on friction and body equilibrium.

Firction force is dependent on the deformation of the body, therefore I would like to get some indications by looking at the location of the resultant of contact force (friction component).

 

I think that the graphical location of contact forces that you see in list resultant forces is just put at the center of the face and has nothing to do with the real location of that force.

 

Is there a way to determine its XYZ location ?

 

Thanks,

 

Alex
