New Feature in HW 2017 – Collision Detection Tool

A new feature called ‘Collision Detection ‘is introduced from HyperMesh 2017, which will check components or groups for element penetrations and intersections and we can fix those manually or automatically. Please note that the Collision Detection tool is only available in the RADIOSS and LS-DYNA user profiles.
Penetration is defined as the overlap of the material thickness of shell elements, while Intersection is defined as elements that actually pass completely through one another:
Any penetrations or intersections in the model can lead to weird model behavior and may also result in run termination. So, it is important and always recommended to fix the penetrations or intersections in the model.
