Hello Ben,

Cylindrical coordinates are not supported in WB LS-DYNA right now, but there is an enhancement request and it should be available at some point in the future. Even the LS-DYNA solver does not support cylindrical coordinates although there is an enhancement request for it as well.

Here is the workaround:

Forced displacement in segment normal direction (


You will have to export the input.k file and apply the displacement in the radial direction using LSPP. Then, you can run the input.k file outside WB using LS-RUN and post-process the results in LSPP.
