swsIncompatibleBondingOption_e Enumeration

Bonding contact methods for analyzing models that contain contacting surfaces with incompatible meshes

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Public Enum swsIncompatibleBondingOption_e 
   Inherits System.Enum
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As swsIncompatibleBondingOption_e
public enum swsIncompatibleBondingOption_e : System.Enum 
public enum class swsIncompatibleBondingOption_e : public System.Enum 


swsIncompatibleBondingOption_Automatic0 = Automatic; let solver automatically switch from surface-based bonding contact to node-based bonding contact, if surface-based bonding contact slows down solution convergence
swsIncompatibleBondingOption_MoreAccurate2 = More accurate (slower); use surface-based bonding contact method to produce continuous and more accurate stresses in contact regions
swsIncompatibleBondingOption_Simplified1 = Simplified; use node-based bonding contact method on models with extensive contact surfaces to quickly reach solution convergence
