Automatic contact force component measures

Automatic contact force component measures

As part of contact QA, freebody force balances are required.

 

For this x,y,z, contact measures are required. Automatic Magnitude is not sufficient.

 

If there is only 1 contact then there is not much hardship other than human errors.

 

If one models a spline connection, for example, then there may be 10's - 100's contacts and human error will occur when creating x,y,z measurements, it takes considerable time and models that have many contacts take a long time to re-run ...

 

Could be switched via a config option or as a check box when creating the contact

 

Contact force components could be stored in a separate csv rather than cluttering the summary file

 

Have default recording in the WCS PLUS at least one other of the user's choice.

We should include:

 

CONSTRAINTS

SPRINGS
