    In this class, we will go over various contact types for linear and nonlinear stress analyses. You will learn when to use which contact type and the types of meshes one needs to get the best results when using contact. This session features Simulation Mechanical and Fusion 360.

    Key Learnings

    • Learn about the types of contact available for linear and nonlinear analyses
    • Learn when to use matching mesh and when to avoid it for models containing contact
    • Learn about different friction laws and what they represent
    • Learn about advanced contact parameters
