    How to analize this contact problem?

    Pablo Jorge

      There is a piece, working as a lever. The second piece is the base, just a reduce part of the real piece, to avoid extra work for my computer.

       

       

       

       

      The question is what to use. Von Mises? Contact Pressure? other?

       

       

      If I analyze the base alone, I see the is clearly a specific contact point that, I'm afraid, will produce a permanent deformation

       

       

      Curiously, even using an h-adaptative. I don't see a refined mesh around the critical point.

       

       

      Where is the option contact-to-surface or node-to-surface? Sorry, but I don't find it. I find in the help but not in the program.

       

      Well, you see the problem. Any suggestion will be welcome.
