  • Never used the CLEARANCE card. In the few times that I need to simulate some interference (for example for rubber bushes that works fitted in a craddle) I use directly a separated load step with a radial loading (by means of a TRANSFORM CARD). In the hypothetic case that I would need to simulate an assembly with metal parts fitted with mechanical interference, I would use a thermal step to expand the male part and get the desired interference before main loading.

    By the way, do you speak Spanish? Your groups names on the contact example were in Spanish.

    Thanks so much for your help.  The Model is working now.  One question.  Is it possible to use the CCX CLEARANCE card to control the interference and gaps in a contact pair?  It would be much more convenient than changing the node positions every time you want to change an interference.

    I got the model to run with the Contact File card. How do I see the contact values?
