In WF4 Mechanica, is there a method to insert a displacement instead of a load force of PSI? I know a surface on a beam has to move .065", but I don't know the force required to make it move that far. I want to know the stress when the section has moved .065".
Hi Kelly, You should be able to use a constraint. When you set a constraint up (correctly a "displacement constraint"), the default is to constrain the selected geometry to zero displacement; but there's also an option to enforce a specified displacement. This works for any of the usual degrees of freedom - there's a box to the right of each DOF where you enter the displacement value. HTH, Jonathan
