Edit Contact Conditions

Specify the type of mechanical interaction for a connection between parts.

Contact conditions are defined for all analyses in the design study. Contact conditions that do not apply are automatically adjusted, for example, thermal analysis or separating contact in modal. Global contact conditions can be overridden at the analysis level.
  1. In the Project Tree, expand the Connections workbench.
  2. Right-click on the connection you wish to edit and select Edit default contact condition from the context menu.
  3. In the dialog, choose a contact condition type.
  4. Click OK.
    The contact condition is applied at the chosen connection for all analyses.
    Note: Contact conditions can be customized at any analysis level. For more information, go to Review Part Contact Conditions.
