Hello, I'm working on my thesis and try to simulate a roller on a track, which moves through a curve. The roller follows the track and the curve, but as soon as I apply a force on top of the plate, the whole roller "falls" trough the track, where it stands at the beginning, even with gravity turned off. Between the rolls and the track I assigned a contact. The problem is probably the joint between the rolls and the track, because they are defined as translational (free) - which works without load, but as I mentioned, not with one. So, what is the best way to get it solved? Goal is to get the reactions in the curve and do a topology optimization on it. Thanks for support (y)
