Problem with New Contact Element

Hi everyone! I hope you people are having a nice break there. I wanted to use zeroLengthImplexContact element for a 2D model. But STKO gives an error saying that I am mixing 2D and 3D models. I am pretty sure there is not any problem with my model because if I use old zeroLengthContact element, ther...

Re: High Displacements with Plastic Material Stage

Update: I talked with Prof. Pedro Arduino this weekend and he suggested this method If you want to get rid of this lateral displacement accumulation. You can create a thicker (10~100 times thicker) region at the end of the boundary, just before the free field columns(Also the free field columns). I ...

Re: Using Multiple Computers

I see. Do you have any suggestions for analyzing large SSI models like with 200-300k elements? While monitoring my system resources, I realized that computer RAM (16GB) is used almost full. Maybe adding more ram may increase the speed?

Using Multiple Computers

Hi STKO Team;

Is it possible to solve models using multiple computers using Prof. Tarque's pack?

Thanks.

Re: Hexa Meshing Issue

Solved it, sorry to bother you. There were some overlapping lines in my dwg file which I imported my model from. This was the culprit.

Hexa Meshing Issue

Hi STKO Team; I am trying to build a soil domain and wanted to start some meshing tests before advancing in the model. I want to use a structured, hexa meshing. Although my domain has a very regular geometry STKO meshes it with with Tetra elements. In your webinar you easily created a hexa mesh, but...
