block contact area-minimum command

Syntax

block contact area-minimum f <range>

Set the value of minimum contact area for non face-face contacts. Contact that are not face-face (e.g. vertex-face) have no inherent area, so this minimum is used when calculating stresses. Face-face contacts will always use their true value of contact area and this minimum is ignored. The default minimum area is 1% of average face area in the model.
