    Hi all,

    I'm trying to model two fenders in series between a fixed point and structure, using AQWA 14.5. Is it possible to model fender on fender contact? Or can anyone suggest an alternative work around?

    Just to clarify, I'm modelling:

    Fixed point > stiff fender > less stiff wheel fender > structure.

    The stiff fender is attached to the fixed point and the wheel fender is attached to the structure. I'd like to find the load experienced by the wheel fender in this arrangement, hence splitting up the two stiffness's.
