Hello everyone,

I'am making some tests over ansys contact elements. In this case i have a soil mass and at surface level i have a contact pair elements CONT172-TARG169 in a limited lenght, which have a uniform load aplied.
The thing is that i'am returning completely wrong stresses and deformations, both seem completely random

In the attachment you can see the input file.

If someone could help me understanding what im doing wrong i would be very grateful.

Thanks in advance,
