Are there any examples of MPC contact used to set up rigid constraints
on opposite ends of two blocks joined with bonded contact after the gap
between the blocks is closed, thereby setting up a preload? The blocks
then need to be rotated 90 degrees about a distant point, where the pilot
nodes of the MPC contact are located.

Yes, please see the attached ANSYS 10.0 MPC contact example. It is
fully commented, so please refer to the input file for the model details.
