Contact Interface (Zero Volume Elements) Answered

In this article authored by Chloe Allison, she mentioned how to get over the problem of Zero Volume Elements by using line elements of type joint. She then gave an example to model the membrane with no electrostatic effect. That worked for me well when applying atmospheric pressure on the membrane. However, this line element method is not working when the electrostatic effect is included. Thus, my question is how to get over that problem (Zero Volume Elements) when the electrostatic effect is included.

  • Hi Ahmad,

    This method should still work with the electrostatic solver. See example 3 here. You just need to be careful with the setup.

    Best Regards,
