I have an issue with using the Imported Displacement feature in Mechanical. Briefly, I'm attempting to model the motion of a wall by using the External Data module in Workbench, and then import this into Mechanical. I will map x-y data points (not mesh nodes) onto my Mechanical mesh, and use the Imported Displacement option to move. The Mechanical model is a 3D wall, approximately 1 mm in thickness and extruded out by 1 mm.
I can import my data points very easily, as shown in the first figure. I have appropriately calculated the displacement and have set this up in Mechanical. My issue lies in the mapping function. Regardless of what settings I use, when I run my simulation the results show a highly distorted mesh (second figure). Any recommendations would be much appreciated!
I understand this isn't a lot to go on, so I will be more than happy to provide further details about my setup.
