|I am performing a structural analysis on workbench where I want to implement chemical expansion of a body in contact with another, in addition to thermal expansion. I have a stress-strain relationship that describes the chemical expansion of the body which has a negative slope(i.e. the chemical strain(expansion) of this body was deduced as a function of the compressive stress exerted on it).
My idea on achieving this is to control the contact between these materials to exert pressures that correlate with the stress-strain relationship.
Does any one know if this is possible via commands? I would appreciate some guidance in writing the command if possible or ideas on how to achieve my goal.
