PTFE Bearing Model using MultiLinear Material

Post by cgtydmrc » Mon Aug 06, 2018 7:24 am

Hi Frank,

Is it possible to model PTFE slide bearing element using 2 node link elements with multiLinear material model together with a truss element corresponding to a post-tension bar to incorporate the restoring force?

Thank you,

C.
