Displacement controlled loading
I'm studying a masonry arch made of brick and mortar. The contact between these two bodies is "frictional". Having reached a certain value of the applied forces, the solution does not converge (it is as if the collapse of the structure had been reached). My goal was, however, to plot the force-displacement curve, so, I assigned increasing displacements. In this case, however, the solution always converges and, consequently, through "Solution>Insert>Probe>Force reaction", I do not achieve my goal. What do you suggest you do?
Thanks in advance
