You can determine the stresses and deflections in a body due to applied loads. But you can work the other way around. You can specify a displacement applied to a body in a certain direction and the program will determine the stresses that arise as a result of the body being deformed in that way. THis is done as a remote load. You will need to set up a coordinate system to defines the displacement you specify.
RMB External loads, Remote load mass, Displacement etc.
Actually, you can also implement a displacement using a reference geometry fixture and choosing the displacement direction and amount.
