Hi,


 


I don't think that can be simulated using linear periodic anymore if you need to apply load to the symmetric faces. Also, as Sdeogeka pointed out to me, even though your geometry is repeating, the stress and strain may not. 


Alternatively, I would just take a representative segment of the bar, and directly apply axial tensile load to the ends.
