.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Property FrictionValue As System.Double
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As ICWContactComponent
Dim value As System.Double
instance.FrictionValue = value
value = instance.FrictionValue
System.double FrictionValue {get; set;}
property System.double FrictionValue {
   System.double get();
   void set ( &   System.double value);

Property Value

0.0 <= Coefficient of friction for contact <= 1.0


See the ICWContactComponent examples.


This property is valid only in static and nonlinear studies where ICWContactComponent::IncludeFriction is set to 1, and  ICWContactComponent::ContactComponentType is set to swsContactType_e.swsContactTypeStaticNoPenetration.
