I would like to do a simulation as described:
there is a 2 point support system, and a tube we want to bend with the top cylinder moving down then hold the load then release for a bit, and again this cycle until it passes plasticity (simulating fatigue in the same time),
using the time and force is given in a table.
please see attached load and time chart for more understanding.
I was able to set up this layout for static analysis and with 1 load, but was not able to do it for dynamic analysis.
or shall I use static simulation
with -non linear analysis ?
thanks a lot,
