Implementation of 3D frictional contact condition Academic Article uri icon


  • This paper deals with the formulation and implementation of frictional boundary conditions. The presented method excludes the necessity of usage of interface elements. The key point of the presented contact algorithm is the choice of a local coordinate system that allows to establish uniquely the states of slip and stick. This is done by applying at the contact point a conical coordinate system in which the total contact force vector lies on the meridian of the cone. The algorithm is fomulated in incremental form and the slipstick condition are …
