File Based Contact Creation

Contact definition between bodies / node sets / element sets / groups can be defined in a text file (*.dat).

File based contact definition can be imported and contacts will be created automatically between the specified entities. Node sets / Element sets / Groups have to be pre-defined before importing the contact definition file.

Contact definition file can be exported from SimLab. This improves modelling robustness and consistent contact definitions to avoid errors.
