Advice on how to Bend Object so it Follows Trajectory Under Dynamic Simulation

    • K0405542

      I am working on a stainless steel nail that bends when it gets inserted into a bone. The predefined created path that it needs to bend on is already known but I want to be able to have the nail follow the predefined curved path to analyze the effect on energy. I am currently working on a 0.0001 second time scale with a force pushing it through. I know I need to utilize an explicit dynamic FEA model to model this bending, but I would appreciate it if y'all know any papers or resources that could illustrate to me how to go about it forward as I had a hard time finding them on my own. Thank you in advance.
