Specifies small penetration checking for contact entities in an
APDL Command: EDSP explicit dynamic analysis.
Label identifying the option to be performed (no default).
ON - Turn small penetration checking on for specified contact entities.
OFF - Turn small penetration checking off for specified contact entities.
LIST - List current setting for penetration checking.
min_ – Minimum contact entity number for which to turn on/off small penetration check (default = 1).
max_ – Maximum contact entity number for which to turn on/off small penetration check (defaults to MIN).
inc – Contact entity number increment (default = 1).
This command controls small penetration checking in an explicit dynamic analysis. EDSP is applicable only to the following contact types: STS, NTS, OSTS, TNTS, and TSTS. The penetration checking specified by EDSP is similar to PENCHK on the EDCONTACT command. However, EDSP controls penetration checking for individual contact entities whereas PENCHK is a global control that applies to all defined contact (of the types mentioned above). EDSP can be used in a new analysis, or in a small restart (EDSTART,2).
Use the EDCLIST command to list the contact entity numbers for all defined contact.
This command is also valid in SOLUTION.
