I'm trying to get a simulation to work and I'm really stuck.
I have a cylinder that's supposed to be insulation foam that is easily bent when a pressure is applied. I have put on a plastic material with low density.
I fix both ends of the cylinder and add a pressure in the middle.
When I add a splint at the middle, which is supposed to prevent it from bending as easily I can't get the simulation to work.
The splint is simple here, I'm planning to add it along the whole cylinder like a net eventually. I figured I would get a small part of it working with a simulation first.
The point will be to apply a pressure or a force on the cylinder with and without the splint and compare results.
Any suggestions would be helpful.
