Ansys Maxwell Contact Resistances

Hello everyone,

I am using Maxwell 16.2 with no chance to get an update.

I want to do a 3D design Eddy Current Simulation to find out the Joule losses of my single phase GIS design.

An important factor for the joule losses that I need to insert is the contact resistances of the several current carrying alluminium bars.
The contact resistances were measured in real life with an Ohmmeter and I would like to to insert them in Maxwell. How do I do that?

The Joule losses are then used as an input to an CFD software. The final objective is to use to compare the temperature rise of the GIS from the simulation and laboratory test.

Thank you in advance.
