The returned value is the usual L_i*L_j tensor, known as "fabric" tensor (or two of them if you use the weak/strong split).

wangxiaoliang (wangxiaoliang) said : #2

what is the meaning of L_i and L_j here?
say, if in 3-d triaxial test, is it a 3*3 tensor?
thanks

Yes, 3*3 tensor. L is the normal of the contact in this function.
