      Hello everyone,

      I have a solid cylinder fixed at left face A as shown in the figure below.

      First, insert a cylindrical support, scope it to the cylindrical face and just fix the tangential DOF(rest free). Second, add a displacement to the circular face and fix the DOF along axis of cylinder(rest free). Also this link https://ansyshelp.ansys.com/account/secured?returnurl=/Views/Secured/corp/v211/en/wb_sim/ds_Geometry_Behavior.html contains details about the 4 behavior options.
      Regards Ishan.

      I set the supports as you told me. However, there was warning error about "Rigid body motion" (the simulation was completed). In this simulation the gravitational force is applied.
