ANSYS Surface Manager

Manage existing contact pairs and surface elements, and create new contact pairs and ANSYS thermal and structural surface elements using the Ansys Surface Manager.

In the Contacts tab you can review a list of existing contact pairs, and in the Surface Elements tab you can review a list of existing surface element components. Contact pairs are listed according to their target and master components, color, assigned ET type, property cards, material, and pilot node name. You can update the data in any of these columns, as well as modify the element key options, properties, and materials of the contact pairs and surface components. You can view the contact normal and reverse it with the buttons provided in the Contacts table. These features are also available for surface elements.
