Working with gap elements

combined stressTo demonstrate FEMAP Gap Contact feature of Nonlinear Static Analysis a cantilever beam is used. One end is fixed and the other will be loaded with a force normal to the axis. The gap is small enough and during the deformation it will close and create a contact. Combined stress is displayed in the animation. This is an exercise presented in the software manual.

For more details on this study please leave a comment bellow and I will answer asap.
