Steel Strip Flattening

Question asked by Tim Ordway on Oct 14, 2008
Latest reply on Oct 23, 2008 by David Nagreski
I want to simulate pulling material defects out of a steel strip. I drew a part that has edge wave in it (the length of the outer edges is greater than the length thru the center). I fix one end of the strip and apply a force to the other end trying to pull the material flat (like pulling your bedsheet from one end to flatten it out on the mattress.) When I run my study, I either get errors that the results were not saved, or it runs but the part still has the wave in it. Is it possible to do what I'm trying?
