Contact Pipes II

Two pipes consisting of plastic material are modeled. The upper one is given an initial angular velocity and crushes into the stiffer lower one. Surface to surface contact is employed. Adaptive process is controlled by a total angle change criteria. If total angle change in the surrounding of an element exceeds ten degrees, the element is refined to the second level and if it exceeds twenty degrees, the element is refined to the third and last level.
