Deformation PE100

      Hello! 

      I am currently trying to do a simmulation on a pipe. This pipe is made of PE100. I have tried to think of the best way to simmulate this for me as this pipe im looking at, is resting on top of some railing. I have not modeled this railing, but i tried to use remote displacement as a BC. The railing is supposedly moving 4,5 meters inwards (-x direction) and 1m outwards (x direction). Im therefore unsure if my initial thinking that remote displacement will help me the way i intend it to. Because im interested to see if my current design of the pipe is under the sigma allow, or over. And the deformation would also be of great help to see if one could reduce the deformation with a new design. As i tried to explain above, my reasoning for the remote displacement is that it would be not free to move in X-direction and rotate in all directions. I will link the BC's with a picture, and hopefully what i tried to explain made any sence. Thank you!
