I'm a relative beginner to ansys workbench. I'm working on a project in which I need to compress and cylindrical part, add another model the will restrict the cylindrical parts expansion, and then "release" the cylindrical part and analyze the stresses/strains that are now in the model that is restricting the compressed cylindrical parts expansion.
Not sure if that makes sense. Basically, compress a cylinder, add another part around the deformed shape, and release.
I'm currently planning on deforming the cylindrical model, exporting the deformed shape as an stl, adding the restrictive part, and then applying a prestress to the deformed cylinder.
Does anyone have any experience in something like this?
