FEA Simulation of a tube through test path

I need some help setting up an FEA simulation. I have a tube with an internal edge that we want to simulate the stress on as it moves through a bending fixture with different edge radii. I have tried to do this using the motion works, but the tube just pierces the fixture. The the most success I have had is using a static FEA with an applied for to the force to the tip and a fixed proximal end. This gave us some useful information but we really need the simulation to better match the actual testing. Any help in setting up the proper study would be appreciated.
