Static simulation of cylinder

I'm new to static simulations and I have a problem.

I'm trying to apply a force on the surface of a cylinder with the two ends fixed.

Even though I only put in 1 N of force the deformation is massive. I was using PE plastic at first, then changed to steel just to see if the material was the problem.

It was not and the steel had the same deformation, so I am obviously doing something very wrong. I have tried with pressure too, same problem.


Is it that the force is (per item)? Total is always grayed out for me so I cant choose it either.


Many thanks for any input.
