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 (ansys.com)

 

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.
