    nonlinear simulations with model beams

    Paolo Ceroni
      Hi all. I am new of SolidWorks and Simulation and i have a (maybe foolish) question: is it possible to make a nonlinear study using beams?
      In detail, i have modeled a long boom. If i start a linear study it is possible to treat it as a beam, so SW09 SP04 executes correcty the study.
      But if i start a nonlinear study, i don't have tuhe option to "treat as a beam" the model. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Thnx in advance
