Slide line contact elements

 Slide line elements: can model the finite-sliding interaction between two deforming bodies when the sliding occurs along a line (“slide line”) that lies in a specific plane; assume that tangential motions orthogonal to a slide line are zero or small (Abaqus/Standard treats such motions as being infinitesimal); can be used with axisymmetric stress/displacement elements; are recommended for specific applications, such as when a contact surface is the surface of a substructure or when CAXA or SAXA elements are involved in contact; are available for first- and second-order elements; and use the same “master-slave” concepts for enforcing contact constraints seen in surface-based contact. For a general discussion of contact modeling, see Defining Contact Interactions. The following topics are discussed:
