Applying Displacement for Bond Test

to2020to2020 Member Posts: 37


I am modelling a pull-out test. In the experiments, the way load is applied is steadily increasing the axial force in the bar up to 500MPa over a 2 minute period and then holding the load at 500MPa for a further of 2 minutes.

How can I simulate this in ANSYS? Reading previous forums indicate that I should apply it as a displacement and if so, can someone help me with how I can achieve this?

I would then want to measure the bond-slip (free end slip).

I am quite new to ANSYS, please help!
