Contact modeling if asymmetric-axisymmetric elements are present

Modeling contact in asymmetric-axisymmetric problems:

  • requires the use of contact elements (ISL or IRS);

  • requires independent contact elements on each circumferential plane; and

  • can be done only on certain circumferential planes.
