I'm new into ANSYS and I'm trying to perform an analysis on a dented pipe, in order to do so I plan to use "transient structural" so I can create the dent on the depressurized pipe, and after the deformation has occurred, pressurize the pipe without the "indenter".
I used SolidWorks to create both the indenter and the pipe in question, I placed them together in an assembly and then opened it in the workbench without using neutral formats.
I used displacement on the edges of the pipe to constrict movement in the Z axis, and the same on the indenter to only allow it to move in the Y axis, I also placed a force on top of the indenter so it would push the pipe and create the dent.
Once the analysis is done, the indenter overlaps with the pipe and the two bodies fail to interact with each other, what tools am I missing? What can I do so the pipe deforms but the indenter doesn't?
Bonus question: once that step is finished what do I need to select in order to remove the indenter for the next part of the study in which only internal pressure will interact with the dented pipe?
