Numerical Modeling of Contact — Lesson 3

In the previous lessons, we talked about contact governing equations and contact types. Let’s dive deeper in this lesson and explore how these contact behaviors are captured in a numerical simulation.


In this video, you will get an idea of the two most widely used contact formulations: penalty formulation and Lagrange formulation. Let's get rolling.
