Thank you very much, Peter. 


Ultimately, the end goal is to view the mechanism of failure after this tubing is displaced as is seen in my crude drawing above, the speed at which this happens is not important. We have witnessed in real world application that if this happens, then the tubing is highly susceptible to occluding, I'm wondering how I can get to this point to demonstrate?


Having said that, would a dynamic solver still be beneficial in finding equilibrium? Otherwise, would switching over to hyperelastic perhaps assist in equilibrium as well? 


Regards,
