you can check P and C by asking abaqus to output CPRES
and COPEN, etc. variables.
I used the same law couple of years ago to study the
dynamic behaviour of window lift motor and havd to
identify the contact law parameters by comparing the
Frequency response function obtained from the
experiments and simulations.
what kind of analyses are you doing?
