How to simulate contact of elements in Karamba?


I’m assembling a model of a sculpture to be evaluated using Karamba. Is it possible to simulate a contract of the base plate with the floor as in the picture? The floor is rigid, so base plate could possibly deform just above the floor. I would like to get forces needed to design the glued anchor and it’s probably different from a scenario without the influence of the floor. Could someone give me a hint, please?

Hello @PetrVacek,
I think it is not necessary to model the contact.
What forces do you want to transfer to the ground via the anchor? Shear only, uplifting normal forces and/or bending moments?
