Thanks a lot for the reply. So I guess it is not possible to do that with
general case of two bodies.
Do you think I can use ContactSphere to do that as one of my object in two
bodies contact problem is an elastic sphere.

sfepy does not support contacts of several deformable bodies yet and it is

The first body is a hemisphere (could be other shape-later on) and the

The second body is fixed and there is a specified displacement boundary

That is all regarding the problem definition and the boundary
I have seen few examples in the gallery section sfepy website and I
an example of Contact Sphere, Contact plane and
an example with
displacement boundary condition.
But in all these examples, there is always one mesh and consequently one
domain where we can define our boundary regions and solve the PDE.
But in my case, I have two mesh as I cannot combine them. If I can
them as one mesh, I can solve the problem but I
cannot do that.
So, how would I progress with this problem. I have two mesh, so I will
two different domain and them use it to define
regions. Now the problem
arises where should I define the field variable. What I understand that
there will be two different field variable based on two domain but I am
sure how to use sfepy to solve such a problem.
Could someone please guide me by an example of such a case where contact
between multiple bodies is done with multiple mesh being used. I have
and I am unable to come up with a proper way to
use sfepy with this
Thanks a lot.
