In a previous post a few days ago, I was showing t you how to simulate a glued contact between 2 solids.
I realised that there were few nuances that I didn’t describe in that video when you needed to make a contact between a solid and a plate so I made another video to complete it.
So here’s what you will learn in this tutorial:
- How to imprint a solid on a plate
- How to mesh more finely around a contact area
- How to create a contact normal
- How to assign a contact between a solid and a plate
- How to assign a forced displacement
Here’s the video:
After watching this video, I want you to have a full understanding about how to simulate a multi-part system in Salome-Meca with glued contacts.
If something is still unclear (as many things actually are), please leave a comment and let me know, I’ll talk about it in a next video!
Thanks for watching!
Need other Salome-Meca Tutorials?
Great video, thank you for the educational material!
It would be great if you could post a steel forming example with contact modeling and large deformations and strains.

In your videos, you always use 1 material.
With your video, and after following that, I always test 2 materials with 3 components.
But every time, I only see red signal.
Pls post 2 materials with muti components.
Yes, I will, thanks for the message.
Cyprien, i built model with plate and solid in contact, similar to this. I followed exactly this procedure, but Code_Aster run does not recognize meshes groups of the two original meshes. It is strange because in this tutorial it is ok…
Ok, it was a problem of meshing… Solved.

I followed your YouTube steps. It all works well but gives me the following error message. Is there any change in contact setup?
# Commands No: 0012 Concept of the type: cham_no_sdaster
CHNOR = CREA_CHAMP(TYPE_CHAM=’NOEU_GEOM_R’,
L’angle formé par le vecteur normal courant à une face et le vecteur normal moyen, au noeud N541, est supérieur a 10 degrés et vaut .18E+03 degrés.
Hi, Cyprien, I followed you ,but it seemed to be something wrong. The wrong message:
not in range(128)’)
What is wrong with this?How to solve it?Looking forward to your answer.Thank you
This is probably due to your local chinese language. I remember there is a problem due to the calendar of your system having chinese characters in it… this is not supported by Salome-Meca. Try to change your local language to english and make sure the days and months in your system calendar are in english and try to run salome-meca again to see if that corrects the problem.
Thanks for your reply! It helped a lot!

I want to simulate a problem consist of two plates connected by a rivet. I also need to simulate the plate hole. I used 2d elements for plates(DKT) and 1d element for rivet(POU_D_E). I tried lliaison_elem for connecting 2d element edges with 1d element node. It gives error when I run the study. Please help me to solve the issue.
that was great video, thank you for that, in the video you apply unitary displacement on the QUBE element. it would be nice if you post the video with applied force on the element.

That was great video, I follow your YouTube video and it works well. I wanted to simulate bonded contact between three collinear cube, where middle cube represent bond made of different material. I am facing problem in simulating it. Can you give me some guidance on this problem.
