I have questions regarding a more complex subject in Ansys Fluent
My first question is:
Is it even possible to simulate bendy/limp bodies or objects in Ansys Fluent?
I could only find examples with rigid bodies.
My second question is regarding the picture that I attached.
I want to send a bendy object ( part of a cable) through a curved pipeline and measure the velocity.
Would you say that this is possible to simulate and if you can: How would you start to work on the problem ?
If bendy objects aren't possible, do you have a idea how to solve this instead? Maybe with ball bearings to fake the bendability?
Thank you for your effort

Thank you. The creating of the curved Pipeline and cable are not the problem. But I don't know how to achieve the bendability of a body, I only find rigid body settings and examples. Could you please tell me how it is possible to achieve this effect?

Can you please ellaborate more on what do you mean by bendability.

I already know how to design CAD objects. I mean with bendability that I have a part of a cable and that is not a rigid/rigid body but a limp and bendy object. In the simulation it behaves like a ridgid body but I eant my cable to behave like a limp body IN the simulation. This is because I want to send the cable through a curved pipeline and for the cable to do that it must bend. How can I solve that in the simulation? Thanks in advance
