At the moment (after commit 8ef3d1d) the contact interaction for Abaqus in fe_abq can be defined both as Interaction or dictionary. We should probably maintain only one of these, after checking that all functionalities are preserved.

For example, using CDict the user can execute the example in fmtContactPair (line 1529):

P.Prop(name='contact0',interaction=Interaction(name ='contactprop', surfacebehavior=True, pressureoverclosure=['hard','linear',0.0, 0.0, 0.001]), master ='quadtubeINTSURF1', slave='hexstentEXTSURF', contacttype='NODE TO SURFACE')

Could this be written also using Interaction?
After modifications, the example in fmtContactPair should be updated and some documentation should be added to class Interaction
