Can we do Explicit dynamics analysis only for metal to metal contacts ?
ccan you elaborate on what type of analysis you want to run and why you want explicit?
Please refer the image- Impact analysis between wings and rigid ball
No, SW won't be able to do what you're showing. SW might be able to handle the rigid body motion of the ball and the impact with a deformable object, but I'd take the results with a grain of salt. Furthermore, it looks like the code that generated the above images allows for element-death, which SW cannot do (to my knowledge).
impact analysis can be done in simulation premium either with linear dynamic or nonlinear dynamic depending on your goals
but like shaun said, it doesn't include element death
