This test case solves the problem of VM201 using the 2-D and 3-D rigid target and contact elements. A plane
strain solution is assumed based on the geometry of the problem. Due to geometric and loading symmetry, the
analysis can be performed using one quarter of the cross section. All nodes on the left edge (X = 0) are constrained,
UX = 0. All nodes on the top edge (y = 0) are coupled in UY. An imposed displacement of -0.1 m acts upon the
This problem is solved in eight different ways. The first four so...
