i´m trying to simulate the deformation of a shaftlike elastomere object.
The problem is, if I put a big force on the object, which compresses it, then the whole object becomes a flat disc with a little bit bigger diameter than the original object, which means, that there is no conservation of mass or volume.
Is this a right conclusion and how can i fix this problem ?
Don't use Solid Edge Simulation for this, because what you want is a typical non-linear issue. You should using Femap w NX Nastran, because it supports elastomers...
I tried Femap already, but it is much more complicated and complex ...
most of the time i am getting error messages which are just incomprehensible.
The change from Solid Edge to Femap is like learning a new programming language.
