Need help while defining friction in 2d halfdisc bar contact problem

Need help while defining friction in 2d halfdisc bar contact problem

Need help while defining friction in 2d halfdisc bar contact problem

I am trying to simulate half Disc placed on a bottom slab subjected to both normal and frictional loading. In the first case, I have applied only the normal load and got the stresses value. For the second case to get the frictional force effects I have applied a tangential load at the node just above the contact point on the disc combined with the normal load in the same step(step-I). But in the combined load case also the stress field in the bottom bar is not changing and the tangential load effect is not transmitted to the bar. I am not able to understand how to apply the tangential load so as to get both normal and frictional effects on the bottom bar.

RE: Need help while defining friction in 2d halfdisc bar contact problem

Which software do you use ? Can you share some pictures showing the model with boundary condition and load symbols ?
