3d meshing with two touching solid bodies in MSC Marc Mentat

3d meshing with two touching solid bodies in MSC Marc Mentat

3d meshing with two touching solid bodies in MSC Marc Mentat

(OP)

I'm working on this concrete beam with rebar going through it. These are all solid bodies the problem I believe is where the rebar touches the concrete. I believe Marc sees those elements as not 3d. Thanks for any help or suggestions.


RE: 3d meshing with two touching solid bodies in MSC Marc Mentat

concrete with rebars in it is a contact problem with both the concrete and rebars in contact. so you should solve it by inputting contact parameters. I don't know about your program. not every fem software can do contact problems.
