Nastran - contact table

Nastran - contact table

Nastran - contact table

I have 3 components that are glued to each other and I have to try different load cases but when I change the load case from Default, I can't open anymore that contact table because I receive this message:
Cannot select this contact table! The load case associated to the selected Load Step/Contact Table has a different number of contact bodies than the current contact table. They must be the same.

The contact bodies are always the same.

Any idea of how to solve this problem??

RE: Nastran - contact table

I think I found the solution: when I imported the loads into a new Load Case, I had to import also the contact properties. I always forget that the contact properties are part of the load group!
