When using this result tracking tool for contacting area, the output is either 0 or the actual area of contact depending on what is set for Contact Side option (contact or target). What area is actually reported here? Why does it return 0 for one or the other in what seems like a random order? For example, I have hundreds of bonded contact defined in my model. When using the results tracker for contacting area, one contact pair will return the value for the contact side, then the next pair will return 0 for the contact side, but a value for the target side. I'm interested in recording the minimum of the areas between the target and contact pairs for use in shear stress calcs. Any suggestions?
