It scales the true thickness. Important option : OPTT – optional contact thickness SFT – optional contact thickness scale factor.Other Important *Part Cards *PART_INERTIA .Allows part based contact option to be used with automatic contacts. Important parameters: Translational mass Initial translations / Initial rotations *PART_CONTACT . . SSF – Slave contact stiffness scale factor.Allows inertia properties and initial conditions to be defined rather than calculated from FE.
