Gap between pile and soil in deformed shape

Abaqus Users mailing list
Dear all,

Do you have any idea about gap I am seeing in the deformed mesh between
pile and soil? Could it be due to surface to surface interaction between
pile and soil?
Following are the pictures. The deformation factor is 5. The second picture
is zoomed one. Also, the common nodes between soil and pile before the
simulation are not matching anymore after simulation.
Any help will be much appreciated.
