Hi, I tried to model the pretension for a NLGEOM analysis with enforced displacements in a local csys. If the pretension is not followed by an another loadcase, the results are OK, if there is a follower loadcase the results are not the same as before and wrong. Attached you can find a test model (with pretension with and without an additional loadstep). Nodes id. 1 and 2 are the ones with enforced displacements in the local csys id 4. Please take a look at the displacements for the pretension in both cases. Is this problem known? Is there a workaround for this problem? Thank you.

Hello everybody, i'm trying to deform a flexible hinge with the enforced displacement. The Problem is, i only can apply a displacement in a single direction but i want to fold the hinge. Here is a picture of a flexible hinge http://www.creativeplasticsllc.com/assets/content/Extrusions/Extrusion%20Special/ES-HINGE-SP.JPG. I know the deformation but i dont know the stress or force. Maybe someone can help? Thanks in advance.
