cosmosworks, non-linear analysis, large deformations

I read the tutorial on large deformations with non-linear analysis, where they bend a flat plate into a circle. pretty neat example, but it's done in free space by applying a bending moment to the free end.

Does someone know if cosmosworks can model bending a flat plate around an object? where the deformation would be limited by coming into contact with an object?

Thanks, Rich.
