You have to use the appropriate loads which must be calculated according to the governing codes. ANSYS will not do that for you and so your design will have no legal foundation.

There are also references to excellent textbooks in earlier postings on the topic.

Dear bugra.canturk

You can choose "contact element" from elements list of Ansys. Go to the ansys help for more information. It needs the basic information about finite element method and grain behavior in movement.

Best regards
