FSI with CalculiX explicit solver and sliding contact

Thanks for replying. I am not using dynamic mesh. Furthermore, looking at Configuration of the Multiple Perpendicular Flaps tutorial case I use only one solid instance that includes the stack of plates since the contact is implemented in CalculiX and I am not sure if contact can be modelled using two independent instances of CalculiX. The simulation crashes after very few time windows, with a displacement in the order of microns and no remeshing. Are there any particular incompatibilities between preCICE and CalculiX’s explicit solver?
