Dear Dr. Yuriy Mikhaylovsky
I would ask You very kindly about the F factor.
How to set the factor coefficient F=Factor in the contact triangle card? How I do decide the magnitude of this factor?
ELEMENTS OF TYPE Contact_Triangle
3105 nodes = [2807,2811,2307] T = 2.0 Factor = 2000000 Friction = 0.25
Is this the static force for the deformation as T= 2 mm? Or is this the force for T/2 static deformation?
Please, is this correct? There are other better ways to set it?
Thank You

According to the Fembic input data format

factor
The repelling force to be used when a node penetrates. The force will increase linearly as the node intrudes further.
