StressCheck Tutorial: Boundary Layer Refinement and P-Discretization in Contact Regions
Abstract: Improving multi-body contact iterations by locally increasing solution refinement (boundary layer mesh refinement and p-Discretization) within important contact regions while leaving the remainder of the model with less mesh refinement and at a lower p-level. Manual conversion of elements to geometric mapping in active contact zones is described.
