Component—Contact Force Quantity
If you choose Contact Force as the measure quantity, you can select either the magnitude or one of the X, Y, Z component directions.
To create a contact force measure, select a contact, then select one of the two surfaces (or curves in 2D). The contact forces on the two surfaces (or curves in 2D) of a contact are equal in magnitude but opposite in direction to each other. This measure can be associated with only one contact.
For pre-Release 2000i models, a contact load measure will be converted into a contact force magnitude measure if it is associated with a single contact. If a pre-Release 2000i contact load measure is associated with multiple contacts, the measure will be deleted after a warning message appears.
