Duration: 57:55

Get an introduction to the updates for mechanical contact modeling in the Structural Mechanics Module as of COMSOL Multiphysics® version 5.5 from Tobias Gasch, product developer at COMSOL. Follow along as Tobias takes you through the specialized features and functionality for setting up and analyzing mechanical contact problems, including:

  • The Solid Mechanics, Multibody Dynamics, Shell, Membrane, and Layered Shell interfaces
  • Contact across interfaces and toward any meshed boundary
  • The penalty method
  • Friction forces in local tangent directions
  • Adhesion and decohesion
  • And more
