Modeling a Tarp/Fabric

Question asked by Jake Purzak on Nov 20, 2019

I am trying to model a tarp on SolidWorks, and when I apply a force to a face of the tarp, the program models it as if the tarp has curvature. However, a point load on a tarp fixed at two ends would cause the tarp to deform (starting at the BC's) straight, like the hypotenuse of a triangle. Does anyone know how to model a tarp or fabric?

 

Thanks!
