Some of the joints in Dynamic Simulation allow entry for friction.

I am more interested in adding friction in stress analysis.

Dynamic simulation only analysis rigid body movements and is not enough for what I do because it dose not include neither elastic nor plastic deformation.

In consequence I got cone pushed threw hole smaller then it.


I know that I am trying to use inventor as FEM program, which it isn't.

I wander if solver for stress analysis can solve non linear cases would be possible to introduce contact type that would simulate friction.
