- | In this commit, the traction element was created to set the traction force to zero at the nodes that are in contact within a specified contact interaction. | + | ===== Description ===== |

- | prp = ElementProperties(ContactTraction2DElement) | + | In the previous figure, the square is represented in 3D although the computation is performed in the generalized plane strain state. The lateral movement of the left and right sides of the square is blocked. A pressure $p$, identical in both cases, pushes the square against the contact tool (frictionless). When the out-of-plane thickness of the square increases, as shown on the right, the resultat force created by the pressure increases due to the increase of the surface on which this pressure is applied. Moreover, if the increase of the out-of-plane thickness is not taken into account in the contact interaction,in the computation of the area in contact, the increase of the resultat pressure force will increase the gap. Hence, $\text{gap}_{1} < \text{gap}_{2}$ previously. . |

- | Hence, if nodes in this ''in contact (in the previous mechanical iteration) in the contact interaction 3, the traction force applied to these nodes is set to zero. | + | |

A square is pushed against a contact tool (frictionless) by a constant pressure $p$, its lateral movement is blocked and its out-of-plane thickness increases. |

+ | * First, the numerical computation simply consists in extracting the gaps in the Metafor computation and choosing the one at $P_{4}$. | ||
