    Thread analysis-How should I set up the contact between the thread faces.

    Peter Shefte

      Trying to do an analysis of two parts to see how they threads interact.  Made the thread flank faces a no penetration contact set with a small gap between them.  The analysis runs, but gets to a point where it seems to get into a loop and will not complete.  Do I need to break the thread surfaces into several smaller contact sets? Looking for suggestions.
