Hello,

 

is there a way in Solidworks Simulation to perform a material penetration test? The simplest example would be a hardness test: a sharpened steel balk is being pushed into the aluminum plate. Is there a way to see this deformed aluminum plate, and other parameters? If so, what would be the settings for this kind of study?

 

This is what I would like to do:
