SOLIDWORKS Simulation Bonded Contact Condition


The bonded contact condition in SOLIDWORKS Simulation can be used to accurately handle load transfer in a multitude of cases where bodies stay in contact such as welded or glued bodies among others.  The software achieves this through two methods; aligning the meshes of the two bodies hence bonding the nodes of the two bodies (compatible) or by applying equivalent internal equations to the contact interface to achieve the same result (incompatible).  The latter is of course used in situations […]
