    The stability of the contact algorithm using the penalty method is significantly affected by choosing of the penalty function. The penalty function is defined like a magnitude of the penetration vector multiplied by the users-defined constant - the penalty parameter. The penetration vector is obtained by solution of the minimum distance problem between the node/Gaussian integration point and the segment of the element. For a general quadrilateral contact segment this task leads to the system of two nonlinear equations. It is shown that the popular Newton-Raphson method is inadvisable for this problem. In this paper, alternative methods like quasi-Newton methods, gradient methods and the simplex method are presented. Especial attention is put on the line-search method that is crucial for a general success of quasi-Newton methods as well as gradient methods. All mentioned methods are tested by means of numerical example, which involves bending of two rectangular plates over a cylinder.
