I am assuming you are using solid elements. Thsi is a metal forming operation and not exactly SWX sim best game. You won't get much more than 10% max strain as the mesh will get pretty distrorted and the element formulation starts to fail.
Fix one end.
apply an angular diplacement to the other end.
Add a plasticity model with approriate properties ( tangent modulus should do fine - if you don't know what this is look it up in the help).
Use displacement control
Thanks a lot Bill.
I figured out the plasticity and i am assuming that i can use anyone of the plasticity models (plasticity - von mises)
How do i apply an angular displacement? Should it be done while defining the model?
I am still using the non-linear study in simulation.
And displacement control should be done after the silmulation is run, right?
apply angular displacement - use remote load displacement connection at non fixed end. hopefully it is fixed and will work.
displacemetn control is the control strategy you select to increment the load to final load. You might want to read the help file.
