What if we have a dynamic load and need nonlinear material properties? Will nonlinear analysis work for this also?
What are you trying to accomplish? Do you have an example? Picture?
I am simulating tapered thread with shrink fit contact sets between mating teeth (not helically modelled). I need nonlinear material because part of the seal face is past yield. It is telling me that the strain rate is too high. I was thinking of displacing the threads to clear each other then letting them go with no penetration contact sets between teeth. Is that even possible?
